About this author


M.J. Rose grew up in New York City mostly in the labyrinthine galleries of the Metropolitan Museum, the dark tunnels and lush gardens of Central Park and reading her mother’s favorite books before she was allowed. She believes mystery and magic are all around us but we are too often too busy to notice… books that exaggerate mystery and magic draw attention to it and remind us to look for it and revel in it.

Please visit her blog, Museum of Mysteries at http://www.mjrose.com/blog/

“There is no glory in honesty if it is destructive. And no shame in dishonesty if its goal is to offer grace.”
M.J. Rose, Lying In Bed

“The owl,” he was saying, “is one of the most curious creatures. A bird that stays awake when the rest of the world sleeps. They can see in the dark. I find that so interesting, to be mired in reality when the rest of the world is dreaming. What does he see and what does he know that the rest of the world is missing?”
M.J. Rose, Seduction

“Is there a secret? Yes. Anaïs Nin and Pauline Réage and Anne Rampling and Erica Jong all knew it. E. L. James knows it.
It is the secret behind all of our writing. And our reading. Arousal starts in the mind. And grows in the mind. The brain is the most erogenous zone in a woman’s body. That is our secret. And it is what we share.”
M.J. Rose, Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey

Nigia Stephens M.J.,
Thanks for accepting my friendvite! Looking forward to cracking open "The Book of Lost Fragrances." I have three new books I plan to read and yours is one of them.


Wonderkell Hi M.J.,
I just wanted to say that I just finished the first of your books I've ever read, the first of many I will read - The Delilah Complex. I adored this book. Your characters are so well drawn & easy to identify with because they are flawed just like the rest of us. And some of your prose is just so beautiful - lyrical & deep. There are quite a few highlights in my Kindle copy, simply because they were beautifully written & rang true for me. So you've gained yourself another fan! Thanks for bringing us this fantastic series.
All the best, Kellie.
