Rosanna Leo is a multi-published romance author. Winner of the Reader’s Choice 2015 in Paranormal Romance at The Romance Reviews, Rosanna draws on her love of mythology for her books on Greek gods, selkies and shape shifters. Her hot contemporary romance Vice was recently reviewed by Library Journal.

From Toronto, Canada, Rosanna occupies a house in the suburbs with her long-suffering husband, their two hungry sons and a tabby cat named Sweetie. When not writing, she can be found haunting dusty library stacks or planning her next star-crossed love affair.

A library employee by day, she is honored to be a member of the league of naughty librarians who also happen to write romance.

Thanks so much for your question. I'm thrilled you enjoyed Sunburn. After 3 books in my Greek series, I put the books on hold to concentrate on my shape shifter series. My original plan was to write books for Hades (that naughty boy) and Artemis (my favorite goddess and Apollo's awesome sister). I hadn't planned Athena, as she hasn't appeared yet in the series, but I will think about what I could do for her. I would still like to return to this series but haven't yet marked out the time for it. Please stay tuned to www.rosannaleoauthor.wordpress.com and I'll definitely share any book news there. Thank you for reading!(less)

It was always my intention to return to the Greek pantheon and do stories for Hades and Artemis, among possible others. Since starting my Gemini Island Shifters series, and seeing the demand for those stories, I've been rather caught up in the world of shifters. I would like to return to my Greek gods, as they are my first love, but I want to make sure I have an awesome story. Rest assured, as soon as I have a good one, you'll hear about it here. :)(less)

You may have noticed a lot of my recent posts have dealt with change. That’s because I’ve encountered a fair share of it in my life over the past while and I’m learning some lessons (re-learning, in some cases). I’m not an expert on the topic. I’m not a life coach or a therapist. I’m just a woman and an author, grappling with events that are often beyond my control.

Thank you! He appears briefly in Sweet Hell and my other readers have asked for his story as well. I do have a recurring desire to write his romance, just so I can play with the idea of putting him through hell, so to speak. LOL
