Maybe life was not as black and white as Kasey Quinn wanted it to be. It seemed her life had been determined before she was born. The schools she would attend, the clothes she wore, the people she called her friends and the day she would take her place in the family business. But fate had a different plan for Kasey’s life. A predetermined plan that was set in motion years before, when the lives of five people converged and her journey with Sean McKenna began. I hope you will enjoy book two of this romantic trilogy.
The Celtic Rose Trilogy is an interconnected trio of novellas about two sisters Kasey and Katelin Quinn. The sisters are identical twins who learn that their perfect world is not what it seems to be. The discovery of their biological father, secret’s their mother kept from them, and a faded photograph, will change their lives in ways they could never imagine.
This series takes place in both America and Ireland, spans four generations, and explores the pitfalls of love, the importance of loyalty, and what it means to be a part of something bigger than you. I hope you will enjoy the journey!
You could say that my love for writing began in grade school when my young imagination was expressed through storytelling. My time in study hall (remember study hall?) was spent creating characters and developing plot ideas. Unfortunately, my stories ended up in a drawer where they sat for nearly two decades.
After graduating from college with a business degree, I began my career as a technical writer. I developed training modules, wrote office policy, and employee handbooks. Needless to say, technical writing did not provide the creativity I craved. So I decided to pull my short stories, poetry, and the beginnings of a novel out of my drawer and began my creative writing career.
I self-published my first book, The Last Rose of Summer, book one of The Celtic Rose Trilogy in February of 2014. Book two in the trilogy, A Wild Rose in Spring, will be available January 2016. The Celtic Rose Trilogy is a trio of novellas filled with memorable characters, plot twists, and of course—romance. If you like Nora Roberts or Nicholas Sparks, you’ll enjoy these interconnected stories of love, sacrifice, and devotion. I hope that you will enjoy the journey!
In Mythology, it is believed that there are three goddesses that dispense fate Moirai (of Greek Mythology), Parcae (of Roman Mythology), and Norns (of Norse Mythology). Each one determines fate through the mystic spinning of threads; those threads represent our individual fates.
The Chinese believe that this thread of fate connects us to the one we are destined to meet, and even though the thread may stretch or tangle it will never break.
Destiny is a subject I explore in the Celtic Rose Trilogy and specifically in "A Wild Rose in Spring."
Kasey Quinn thought her life had been determined before she was born, but fate had a different plan for Kasey’s life. A predetermined plan that was set in motion years before, when the lives of five people converged and her journey with Sean McKenna began.
A Wild Rose in Spring
“The Irish are a people that believe in destiny. Your destiny is Sean.” Sinead knelt down and began pruning the dead wood from her prize-winning roses. “Before the two of you were born, God bound you together. There’s no denyin’ it.”
“But we’re not together.”
“Ah… the thread that binds the two of you may bend, but it can never break.”
“Life isn’t that simple,” Kasey remarked.
“Isn’t it? We love you no matter what happens mo cree, but you need to be followin’ your heart not your head.”
