Interview with Christine Rose, author of Rowan of the Wood

Okay, if you haven't noticed, I've decided that I like doing interviews. They're fun, and I get to ask people questions. Cool writer people!

I've kicked it up a notch today. Christine Rose, co-author of the book Rowan of the Wood along with her husband, Ethan Rose, has stopped by Frolicking Through Cyberspace on the Beltan Blog Book Tour.(Ethan does sneek in for a second.) And we're trying something new. Christine has answered my interview questions...on video. Plus she's answering your questions here today in the comment section.

Christine and Ethan's book is about an ancient wizard who possesses a young boy after a millennium of imprisonment in a magic wand. He emerges from the child in the face of danger and discovers Fiana, his new bride from the past, has somehow survived time and become something evil.

Sounds spooky. Christine will tell us more about Rowan of the Wood and answer some other questions too. Take it away Christine!

You can also find out more about Christine and Ethan at and read about(and enter!) the contest they are running during their Beltan Blog Book Tour at

Wasn't that fun? Thanks Christine, for being here.
Have a question for Christine? Just ask. She'll be here all day.


  1. Can you honestly believe I left my comment on the wrong post?

    So... on the *right* post...

    Thank you so much for hosting us, Heather!

    Please leave a comment or question, and I'll be around all day to respond & answer.

  2. Christine and Heather -

    Cool video - I feel like I've met Christine!

  3. Hi Charlotte, isn't she great!
    Thanks Christine for hanging out. I already got to ask you a bunch of questions, but I am wondering, who did the cover art for Rowan? I really like it.

  4. The cover art, as well as the design for the Geekalicious Gypsy Caravan, was done by the amazing artist Ia Layadi.

    She'll definitely be doing the cover for the second book.

  5. Hi Christine and Ethan!

    That was a great interview! You mentioned your book had won an award. Can you tell us more about that?


  6. Sure, Linda!

    We had the honor of being named Award-Winning Finalists in the National Best Books 2008 Awards. :-D

    It's for independent and small press publications.

  7. Oh wow! That's fantastic! Congratulations!

    It was great to get to know you a bit. Thanks for sharing. :)

  8. Thanks for frolicking over to my blog today Christine--best of luck on your book tour!

  9. Christine, I enjoyed hearing about your inspiration for the story and your love of Arthurian legend. And it's good to hear about the rocky road before and after publication. Interesting to hear your husband's story, too.
