Hi, I'm Rowena
I wrote half a YA novel called Silver. Some people on Wattpad liked it, so I wrote the other half.
I liked the people on Wattpad. So I wrote Repeat After Me.
Please follow me or I'll get a complex and think you only like me for my stories:
HarperCollins published my novel The Replacement Wife as an ebook.
I blog about reading, writing and publishing in the digital revolution: http://www.rowenawiseman.com
Thanks for noticing my work. I've noticed that you've noticed.

My passion is to inspire, speak to the heart, provoke thought, awaken the soul and challenge the norm, and help build communities that shine.
In 2008, I pioneered the English @CellPhoneNovel - a Japanese youth movement of serialized minimalist poetry-prose (avg. 100 words/chapter) - through Textnovel Reader's Choice Award winning SECONDHAND MEMORIES (Sakura Publishing 2015) and led the writing community.
My more recent work includes ESPRESSO LOVE, a dystopian magical-realist novel that won Watty's 2014 and ranked #1. OF FORESTS & CLOCKS & DREAMS (Inspiritus Press), an avant-garde literary, philosophy and art collection, was published in 2016, and the short story "The Elephant Girl" received the Babs Burggraf literary award of $2500.
Some of my influences come from Japanese entertainment, pop culture, and names such as Murakami, Ozeki, Martel, McCarthy, DeLillo, Carver, Orwell, Kafka, Rumi, Rimbaud, Whitman, Eliot, Pound, Baudrillard, McLuhan.
Thanks for dropping by and many inspirations to you!

Elizabeth Barone is an American novelist who writes contemporary New Adult romance and suspense, starring sassy belles who chose a different path in life. Her debut novel, Sade on the Wall (writing as Kaylene Campbell), was a quarterfinalist in the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest. She is the author of the South of Forever series and several other books.
When not writing, Elizabeth is very busy getting her latest fix of Yankee Candle, spicy Doritos chips, or whatever TV show she's currently binging.
Elizabeth lives in northwestern Connecticut with her husband, a feisty little cat, and too many books.
I write fiction, memoir and plays. I love reading new works and connecting with readers and other authors. Most often, I write about relationships that have a dysfunctional, psychological undercurrent. Some of my works may be triggering for those with histories of trauma.
In addition to creative writing, I am a researcher working with families with young children with special needs. I am also a college instructor, mother and thrift store addict.

A bit about me...
After a good portion of my life spent writing test papers, research papers, magazine articles, newspaper columns, travel porn, threatening letters, letters of apology, press releases, public statements, marginalia, footnotes, excuse notes, dismissal notes, music notes and resumés, I have finally returned to writing fiction and to perhaps finish the novel that I began almost 30 years ago, back in the dark ages before the Internet.
I am here to share my love of language and imagination with you. My stories will hopefully challenge you to think, to feel and, perhaps, you will respond in some fashion. I aspire to create meaningful, theme-driven tales that draw upon the rich tradition and conventions of our wonderful literary heritage, yet with a contemporary flare.
If you enjoy thoughtful and mature storytelling, please vote, share or comment. After all, it is only through reader responses that independent writers will continue to be challenged to create.
I hope to hear from you,
Something between the soul of a 90 year old man and the idealism of a twelve-year old boy trapped in the confused and eager ambition of a twenty-year old embarking on the most daring action-packed quest of them ALL: life.
Feel free to ask me questions or get in contact with me by email
I look forward to your thoughts :)

I'm a crazy fish who lives in a mangrove paradise. Daydreamer. Professional Procrastinator. Likes the smell of bees and the buzz of flowers. Claims to be the most interesting author in the world, who has fought against lions in the Serengeti, trekked with penguins across the Antarctica, makes a mean chicken Parmesan. But I digress...
What kind of books do I like? I'm the classics kind of person mostly. Fitzgerald is my main man after slugging through his awful female characters. On the more modern side, I like Alan Hollinghurst, John Green, a bit of Alice Munro.
Favorite tv show? Hmm... ANIME! Ok that's out of the way. TV show? Game of Thrones is good. Arrested Development. Seinfeld.

Hello, and welcome to all the new readers enjoying Her Dear & Loving Husband. You guys are great! A huge thank you to the nice folks at Wattpad for adding the novel to their Featured List in Vampire fiction. Her Dear & Loving Husband is a great read for anyone who loves vampires, is interested in the Salem Witch Trials, or enjoys a great paranormal love story. I'm currently writing the prequel/sequel to the Loving Husband Trilogy, Down Salem Way, here on Wattpad. Let's watch James and Sarah's new tale unfold together.

I string words together, build things on the Internet, teach fancy businesses how to be more fancy, and recently decided to write a new short story every weekday for a year.
All in all, I'm deeply overextended.
