Sara Shaw asked Richelle Mead:

Is Rose inspired by someone you know or perhaps yourself?

Richelle Mead I actually don't know anyone quite like Rose. In fact, she's my opposite! So often, I write Rose and decide her actions based on what I *wouldn't* do. Would I punch first and ask questions later? Probably not! So that's what I make Rose do. :)
