Small-town country girl Calisa Rhose has been writing since she was a teen in Oklahoma.
It wasn’t until 2005, while living in California, that she realized if “they” can do it there’s no reason why she couldn’t write and get published, too. That realization began her journey into the world of
publishing. After a cross-country move with her husband and their three grown daughters (plus families) back to her home state, Calisa dove into her writing. She joined RWA and the local chapter OKRWA. Since that day she has been more determined than ever to see her name in lights. She intends to nurture others and continue to grow as an author.
She’d love to hear from her readers at and you can visit Calisa at www.calisarhose.wordp

Calisa’s Recent Updates

“If you’re going to be a writer, the first essential is just to write. Do not wait for an idea. Start writing something and the ideas will come. You have to turn the faucet on before the water starts to flow.”
Louis L’Amour

Niyi Osundare
“One hasn't become a writer until one has distilled writing into
a habit, and that habit has been forced into an obsession.
Writing has to be an obsession. It has to be something as organic,
physiological and psychological as speaking or sleeping or eating.”
Niyi Osundare

John Steinbeck
“The profession of book writing makes horse racing seem like a solid, stable business.”
John Steinbeck

Valerie Sherwood
“Don’t write what you know—what you know may bore you, and thus bore your readers. Write about what interests you—and interests you deeply—and your readers will catch fire at your words.”
Valerie Sherwood

Sarah Grimm
“Look at the picture, Emma. Do you see his expression? He looks like he’s been waiting his whole life to find you and suddenly there you are.”
Sarah Grimm, Wrecked

*Nope. Nothing broken* Hi gal! I'm finally trying to learn my way around very slowly! If you stop by the cbc loop playground (I think) you'll see what other possible news I have going on with my wolves. Possibly...meaning I still have to write them. lol
