Greetings to friends old and new!
If you are looking for a full-length novel, I suggest taking a peek at DISGUISED, a mystery/chick lit story about a writing student who claims his mentor has stolen his manuscript! Set in beautiful Portland, Maine, this story has a little bit of romance, a lot of fashion, and enough intrigue to keep you guessing who did what right up until the end.
If you would rather try a sample first, there are a few short stories over there in my list.
JENNIE'S GOT SOME GUM is my latest with a theme of not-fitting-in.
I NEVER WAS THAT FOND OF KAFKA is a chick lit/Kafka mash-up--weird and funny, if I do say so myself.
UNLIKELY OBJECTS is a Christmas story in four parts.
ESCAPE, USA is an emotional story about teenage depression/mental illness.
52 FLASH has a few short-short stories in various genres.
I interviewed some amazing Wattpad writers in LADIES ON LIFE INTERVIEWS.
A little bit about me. I wrote a column, news and feature stories for my local weekly newspaper for three years. In October '15, I decided to take a break from journalism and try a few new things. I have a new part-time job in a law office. I am working on rewriting my chick lit/mystery story. I am writing literary fiction short stories and submitting them to literary magazines.
I'm addicted to books. I've had to limit my purchases as I've run out of space on the bookshelves and I really, really like print. I'm beginning to use the library again, at least until my book habit it under control, lol.
I also love coffee. Books and coffee are my only true addictions. I will one day own my own cafe with a literary theme. The whole place will be lined with bookshelves. I will have a good excuse for buying books...ahem, dear, it's for the business!
I'm a wife. I'm a mom
I'm going gray slowly but surely.

Welcome to the ELARoadshow's corner of Wattpad. Hopefully, you'll find something to suit your taste.
Here on Wattpad, I am slowly trying my hand at as many genres as possible. I also try to illustrate my work with my own drawings and photos. Currently, I have a mix of short stories, poetry, science fiction and fantasy available for you to sample.
The Grandmaster's Son: Candidate
My featured illustrated fantasy novel, which has also made its way onto the official Wattpad reading list for Medieval Magic and Mythology. "Grandmaster" is epic in scope, and while the first novel has been completed, the series is ongoing. It follows a teenage boy and his friends as they battle corruption and evil, trying to make the fantasy realm of Ontavia a better place.
A science fiction novel, but also has ties to fantasy. It was the first work I published on Wattpad. I try to update this weekly, too.
A collection of short stories that all deal with love...sort of. "Heavy Love" has been included on the official Wattpad short story reading list called "Another Time, Another Place." Updates for "Heavy Love" are infrequent.
A collection of poetry mostly written a long time ago. Poetry was my first love, and my only traditionally published creative writing has been in this genre. Complete.
A collection of daily haiku and photographs. Complete..
A collection of Flash Fiction I am currently writing to stretch and test my skills.On hold until summer.
I hope you find something you like!
Hello, I'm Rose
Writing anything with a dark undertone or theme. (Not insane or depressed. Just insane)
The stories we create, the art we make and the dances we dance are expressions of the deepest parts of our soul. Therefore there is no true fiction, they are just stories that happened inside a person opposed from being actual fact.
I write to learn what it's like to be someone else. Through writing I can be the hero or the villain, I can live in 17th century France, or 28th century Antarctica. I can bring back the dead, and kill at my will. I can hurt and I can heal. I can be a girl or a boy or something else, I can be 12 or I can be 66. I can be rich or poor, gay or straight, Christian or Muslim, I can be black or I can be white, I can be a peace maker or a terrorist. I can at the very least attempt to get into the head of another.
I can be a teacher, I can teach you what I know. I can inform you of my view point while telling an insane story. I can get you out of the world, while keeping you in it.
That is why I write.
I may write about dark stuff, but I'm actually really nice. (Because I'm Canadian?)
Warning: love and romance may be cheesy
(Cause I'm Ace?)
All for Jesus ✝
#DieEmpty (because if you die full you failed and made the graveyards a tad more rich)
#PeopleNotStuff (because people have more value then your possessions)
(PS, Please don't get all critical of my work if you are a new reader and you don't have a connection with me or the stories. I don't mind if you point out a grammar error. But if you're going to try and rewrite the entire story, just back off please. The only opinions I actually appreciate are the ones from wattpad users who regularly read my stuff. It doesn't make you look good when you pop up ten times in my notifications criticizing every bit of my work. Thank you.)

Publishers Weekly on this 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi Finalist:
