Reader Comments

One reader writes, "Many people tend to sneer at romance novels...not realizing the appeal they have for all audiences and the work that goes into them to make them authentic." Well, thanks to all of you, I'm happy to say that my books are reaching all audiences, men and women, from teens to octogenarians, encompassing all walks of life and all ethnic backgrounds.

Because of your response to my writing, I have now sold books for
foreign publication in Russia, Taiwan, France, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Italy, and the Netherlands. I receive letters from Malaysia, South Africa, Brazil, Australia, the West Indies, Singapore, and Egypt, and email from Canada and Japan.

Best of all, due to the efforts of those of you who pass my books on not only to sisters and daughters, but also to husbands and sons, I am rapidly becoming known as a writer of Westerns, as well as of romance! I am gratified to hear from many male fans who are as enthusiastic about my work as my female fans! Below are comments taken from a cross-section of the many letters and
email I receive:

"Rosanne is one of my all-time favorites. One of the highlights of going to the Romantic Times convention in Ft. Worth was meeting her in person....And talk about historical accuracy! She is one of the best I know for giving you an education while reading and doing it in such a way that you don't even realize it!" -- Maudeen Wachsmith, of Rawhide & Lace Magazine

"THANK YOU for your wonderful expression of American western history and romance, and for sharing it with all your loyal fans." -- Charlotte, via email

"Rosanne, I want to thank you for the pleasure that your book gave me. It was that kind of book that a person finds hard to put aside even when your wife is calling you to supper." -- Arthur, 81 years young

"I love books with a western setting, and I love all of the detail work that you put into your writing. I just can't wait to turn the page when I'm reading your books." -- via email

"My list of favorite authors include Jude Devereaux, Fern Michaels, Danielle Steele, Victoria Holt--I've had to put your name at the top of the list, even above Victoria Holt." -- Jeanette

"Our son and his wife have been reading your novels for a long time. When my husband had a stroke, they wanted him to start reading again, so [my son and his wife] stocked us with the Savage Destiny series...John read them, and as fast as he finished a book, I read it...Thanks to you, my husband is reading again!" -- Mrs. Leezer

"Your stories keep me up all night...I'm up in my seventies--and your books take me back in time--and I relive my life through your wonderful imagination! Thank you for being there for all of your readers." -- Zella Mae

"Thank your for your wonderful stories. Each contains a plot, lots of action, and first-class romance. I think your readers keep them because they're so delicious!" -- Zhenin

"Your books are so informative and spellbinding! I love spending a snowy Michigan Evening curled up with a cup of tea and a book of yours transporting me to another place and time." -- Patricia, email

"I am half Cherokee, and I have yet to read a book that has the compassion, understanding, pride, and awareness that your books have for the Indian race. The comprehension and sympathy that you have written about will never be met by another. You truly comprehend what is in every Indian's heart." -- Kristina
