Author has written 9 stories for Nature, Spiritual, Haiku, Humor, Humor, General, General, Fantasy, and Mystery.

Hello, to anyone reading this!

I'm Golden Roses. I'm a not-so-normal person with a passion for reading and writing. I can read a book in one day and straight away want to start another. My favorites are usually fantasy books, but I also like some Christian fiction and romance. And any book that can make me laugh automatically goes up a number of points in my book. It's those few books that can get genuine emotion out of you that are always the best. Any avid reader knows what I mean. If a writer is able to evoke some emotion out of you, whether it be crying, laughing, yelling, whatever, I would say that is a sign that that is an excellent author. Not many people are able to do that nowadays.

Writing goes along with all that reading because, through writing, I'm able to create an entirely different world than the one I live in right now. And wouldn't it be amazing if you could bring other people with you into that exciting new place? That's how I see writing to be. It is one of the few times where the only limitations you have, are the extent of your imagination.

I'm in college right now on my way to becoming a middle school teacher. I was going to get an English degree, but it can be hard to find a job with that, and I felt like God led me to where I am now. I'm also getting married this summer to the most wonderful man I know (at least, the most wonderful one for me!). Not sure how much time I'll have for working on my stories as I try to juggle schoolwork, a part-time job, and wedding planning, but we'll see what happens!

Please, everyone read and review all my work so that I know what you all think!!
