Most people discover their love of reading first and then decide to try writing. For Renee Rosen, it was just the opposite. From the time she was a little girl she knew she wanted to be a writer and by age seventeen had completed her first novel, with what she admits was the worst opening line of all time.

Hi Kelly,
Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out to me and I apologize for the delay. I've been traveling a lot with Park Avenue Summer and am still playing catch up with emails and such. I'm so glad you've enjoyed the previous book and especially the strong female characters. I have more coming up for you. Right now I'm finishing up my next novel, The Social Graces (coming 1/21) and it tells the story of Mrs. Astor and Alva Vanderbilt vying for control of New York society during the gilded age. These are two very different, but equally strong women. I'm having great fun with the research and the writing. Learned so much about that very rich (no pun intended) time period. Stay tuned for more details! Thanks again and happy reading!

THE SOCIAL GRACES is "clean". There's a bit of kissing but that's about it. This book is really more about the women and less about the men. My other novels definitely have more heat.

“I realized then that there are moments when life seems to be happening to you. These are those moments that you later reflect on, wondering how you survived them. Getting the injections in my eye was like that. So were the laser treatments. It was even a little like that when I lost my virginity. These are moments that change and shape you, and they’re so imposing that you can’t stay present for them. So you slip away, someplace safe inside yourself, and wait for the storm to pass.”
Renee Rosen, Every Crooked Pot: A novel

“I was scared. Nothing feels solid anymore. Security had been yanked out from under me. I wanted to tell her how much I loved her. She just had to know how much. My grandfather had been old; he was supposed to die. Parents weren't. It was in my mother's arms when it hit me. Every day brought you that much closer to losing the ones you loved. Death would always find you, and there was nothing you could do about it.”
