Thanks Rowan and Liz for joining the Wednesday Women lineup!

Rowan Knight’s presence is the prevailing impression. She is tall with bold Native American features, and has a quiet strength that is incredibly sexy. Rowan may be butch, but she hasn’t forsaken her feminine side. Her long silky hair sways erotically when she is in motion. Rowan’s dark blue, nearly black, eyes make you want to get closer to discern their color, expression, and the inner thoughts that she rarely reveals.

"A Taste of Home," a short story featured in the Appetites Anthology, shows a different side of Rowan. She’s raw and struggling with the deepest hurt she has ever experienced. "A Taste of Home" is also the prologue for Words Left Unspoken. My intention regarding the prologue was to show the contrast between who she was when she arrived in Northampton, MA and who she has become years later. She finds her center in the intervening years between the prologue and first chapter. When the novel begins she is happy, at peace and a source of quiet strength and support for her friends. The prologue is important to keep in the back of your mind, it shows that she has secrets, painful ones, that will come into play as she falls in love.

Words Left Unspoken won’t be out until Spring 2016, possibly late 2015. Until then you can pick up a copy of Appetites, to get your first glimpse of this compelling character.

  1. I'll be honest and say I missed the show. I'll also state with all honesty that I am sorry I did. As a poet and writer, not only on my blog for the enjoyment of others, but for my own personal joy, I am a reader too. I read because I love traveling with my imagination to places where writer's endeavor to take me. I love finding through reading how to paint better visual pictures with words. I would love to think that I could be lucky enough to win a copy of 'Appetites'. But if not, then my congratulations to whoever does.
