Words the Water
Imagine a rough day at school. The bully on the playground, the popular girls teasing your outfits, or you made a mistake that you got in trouble. All you want to do is run. Run to a place you can't think or feel. Run to a place to cry.
For me, it was a river nearby. It had a large rock where I could sit, lay, or cry through the feelings as the sounds of the river took it all away. In the sun, rain, snow, or wind, I could sit there and listen to the sounds of the water. It was there that I found my voice.
Silver River I called it in a poem when I was young and the sounds of water help me to this day. It made me first want to be a children's book author.
Then the Idea was Born
A mother's love is strong, unconditional, and everlasting. I started writing as Glo Rose to create stories for my children that showed them that my love is always with them. I wanted them to know they are not alone, no matter what they face. The lessons life teaches them may be challenging but worth experiencing to get stronger and wiser.
As my writing developed, I wanted my books to help all children understand and be proud of their unique selves. The content grew into assisting children to recognize their emotions, that whatever they feel is valid, and safe ways to express them to family or social media. Glo Rose Books has developed into a brand about helping children to understand themselves better while navigating this ever-changing world.
