About Me + Contact

Hello there!

I'm twenty year old Rose May, currently earning my BS in Biology and Creative Writing from a small liberal arts university!

I've been reading romance novels since I was twelve - and reviewing them (consistently and inconsistently) on this blog for three years now. Whew, how time flies.

Why do I love romance? Romance novels have done a lot of good for me in raising my self-confidence. Reading romance novels have shown me it's okay to be an independent, intelligent, and assertive woman (something society doesn't particularly favor) - and to have high standards in my relationships because I am worth it. I also love that romance novels can make fun of some of the stereotypical pitfalls of both males and females in a way that is educational and humorous.

In my spare time I enjoy running, reading (duh?), writing, singing (opera and musical theater), working on antique cars (see my car to the right!), gardening, playing piano, and baking. And sleep. I love to sleep. I study a lot. I work as a lighting designer and technical director for my school and community theater productions. I would love to be a professor someday. Contact me with the info below - questions, concerns, comments... you get the idea.
Contact me at romanticrosemay@yahoo.com  - I'd love to hear from you!!! I've read many more books that those I've reviewed (only a very small portion of my library has been reviewed) so if you're looking for a recommendation for any genre I'm here to help. I'm best able to recommend in the contemporary and historical romance genres - and I can point you towards some paranormal or YA authors as well. For other genres I'd be happy to direct you to a blog more suited to your tastes!
