Rosalyn Eves grew up in the Rocky Mountains, dividing her time between reading books and bossing her siblings into performing her dramatic scripts. As an adult, the telling and reading of stories is still one of her favorite things to do. When she's not reading or writing, she enjoys spending time with her chemistry professor husband and three children, watching British period pieces, or hiking through the splendid landscape of southern Utah, where she lives. She dislikes housework on principle. Her first book, BLOOD ROSE REBELLION, comes out Spring 2017 from Knopf.

Review policy: I only review books that I enjoyed and would recommend to others (hence the predominance of 4-5 star reviews).

I love a good romance. But one of my very favorite is Eugenides and Attolia in Megan Whalen Turner's Thief series. Lovely, heart-wrenching, and sometimes brutal--one of the best enemies to lovers stories I've seen. (Runner ups: Wentworth and Anne in Persuasion; Gabriel and Rachel in Archangel; Harry and Corlath in the Blue Sword; Natasha and Daniel in The Sun is Also a Star).(less)

It's like solving this immensely complicated but very satisfying puzzle.

But the next best thing about being a writer is other writers and readers--the book community is wonderful and supportive and I have gotten to meet so many remarkable people.(less)

“Some rebels are made, not born”
Rosalyn Eves, Blood Rose Rebellion

“But needs must when the devil drives.”
Rosalyn Eves, Blood Rose Rebellion

“The term “Romani,” as used in this story, is in some sense an anachronism—in the nineteenth century, Romanies would have been known primarily as “Gypsies” (Cigányok in Hungary). Due to the negative stereotypes attached to the term “Gypsy” and the fact that it stems from a mistaken idea of their origins (it’s a corruption of “Egyptian”), “Roma” or “Romani” has been widely adopted as the preferred form of address. I chose to use “Romani” to acknowledge this preference and to reflect the difference between the way Gábor views his family and friends (and the way Anna comes to) and outsider perspectives. Where “Gypsy” is used, it refers strictly to outsiders’ perspectives of Romani life.”
Rosalyn Eves, Blood Rose Rebellion

Topics Mentioning This Author

“One writes not to be read but to breathe...one writes to think, to pray, to analyze. One writes to clear one's mind, to dissipate one's fears, to face one's doubts, to look at one's mistakes--in order to retrieve them. One writes to capture and crystallize one's joy, but also to disperse one's gloom. Like prayer--you go to it in sorrow more than joy, for help, a road back to 'grace'.”
Anne Morrow Lindbergh, War Within & Without: Diaries and Letters of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, 1939-1944

“The world is fairly studded and strewn with pennies cast broadside by a generous hand. But- and this is the point- who gets excited by a mere penny? But if you cultivate a healthy poverty and simplicity, so that finding a penny will literally make your day, then, since the world is in fact planted in pennies, you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days.”
Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

“...clutching the Book to his chest, under his crossed arms, as if trying to press it into his ribs, until his lungs filled with letters and his heart became a pulsing paragraph.”
Traci Chee, The Reader

“If you're reading this, then maybe you know you ought to read everything. And maybe you know you ought to read deeply. Because there's witchery in these words and spellwork in the spine.”
Traci Chee, The Reader

“Were they all just stories whose endings had already been written, the dates of their deaths pinned to the page with periods?”
Traci Chee, The Reader
