For those of you who don’t know (or remember me :-p ) my name is Rose Gordon and once upon a time I wrote historical romance–mostly Regency-era.
Here’s a few visuals…
And when I wasn’t slaving away to write about unsuspecting fellows and their over-scandalous counterparts, I was on here blogging about nonsense like…
(The time I fell through the attic on Thanksgiving.)
(Crazy stuff I’ve found–and maybe bought…–at the fair or craft mall.)
I also shared on here about my failed attempts at crafts:
Held crazy votes:
Or shared stories about my kids:
(100 “signed by author” stickers, plus autograph for 100th day of school; and my kids fighting over a stuffed enema…)
So many of you supported me when I raised $10,000 for MS and looked like an idiot while doing it!
Let me share some seriously scandalous “swag” I’ve picked up at different conventions:
I had so much fun writing over 600 blog posts whether they were stories about the craziness in which I live, a man’s POV of my books, hosting contests and so much more. I have missed out on so much by not posting very consistently for the past three years. A fact I wish I could change–but some things aren’t things you post. Or at least not things *I* could ever post.
Many don’t know that about 3.5 years ago my world tilted on its axis when the happily-ever-after I believed I was living fell apart. I have gone through fire after fire since and in my own opinion, I think I’ve emerged a much different, and perhaps stronger person.
Am I ready to write romance novels again? No. Maybe one day, but not today.
Am I ready to start blogging about the craziness that I now face with boys who are 10 and 12 and have entered into their first year in public school? Oh, absolutely. (Funny sidetrack: on Halloween my kids left for the school bus 10 minutes earlier than they needed to. Why? Because they could and I was in the shower and couldn’t tell them, “Oh, hell no.” When I got out of the shower, I noticed I had received about 5 texts from my kids. “Mom, we’ve been down here for 5 minutes and haven’t seen a single bus. I don’t think they’re having school today. You know, Halloween is a holiday.” Oh, my poor kids who’ve always been in a church school or heaven help me homeschooled for an overwhelming year. I wrote back: “Wait for the bus. You left 10 minutes early. The bus doesn’t even get there until 7:40 and you usually leave at 7:30. Writing me at 7:25 to tell me you haven’t seen the bus and you think there’s no school in observance of Halloween will be posted to Facebook if you two argue when you get home tonight. 😀 Love ya!”)
So, if you’re up to following my blog to follow more about me and my shenanigans, my crazy parenting, unusual finds, ridiculous signs, craft fails, wild tales and other craziness where truth is stranger than fiction, than please stay tuned and subscribed. (After all, it IS called Rose Unscripted.)
If you followed my blog as a means to keep up with my writing progress and being informed of new books only, I will by no means be disappointed if you’d like to unsubscribe.
Again, I want to thank you all. Whether you’ve been a follower since I started blogging in Feb. 2011 or have subscribed recently, it doesn’t matter, I just appreciate that you’ve enjoyed my work enough to sign up!

I love your stories, I do hope you return to writing romance someday, but in the meantime it sounds like you’ll have lots of entertaining stories here on your blog!
Thank you, Kate! Life is never dull in my house. Usually I am the victim of myself. So it’s all good.
Its good to have you blogging again. Lord knows we all understand how life can take unexpected turns.
I know you do! The Lord will come through in the way He knows is best.
Super happy you’re back! Looking forward to hearing about all the crazy 😉
Oh, of course YOU are! You once got to be an eye witness to it! LOL Ironically about 2 weeks ago I was telling someone about our experience in Chicago.
Your kids are now 10 and 11? Wow. :O Time has just flown by since we met. LOL on the school bus thing. Were they disappointed to find out that Halloween is not a day they get off from school?
I remember reading about the ceiling. That one still gives me chills.
It’s nice to see you back. Only you can take a situation and make it funny. I’m glad you still have your sense of humor. 🙂
Yeah, they’re getting old! I’m sure yours are, too.
Yes, they were disappointed. I was just flabbergasted. I had never really considered it one of those types of holidays. Kids. Go figure. (I swear boys will do anything to get out of school.)
Thanks, I really do try to see thing funny in things–otherwise life would be depressing.
(The ceiling still gives me chills, too. I hate going up to the attic or when I see the seam where the ceiling fell when I’m in the kitchen, my heart starts pounding. God is good, that is for sure.)
It’s good to see you here again! I hope you find that perfect balance in your life of health, happiness, and fulfilling work.
Thank you! Good to be back!
Ah life! Such a fickle thing. Passes so quickly sometimes. I started following your blog because I enjoyed the zaniness. I plan to continue. Especially enjoyed the story of Jezzie and hope there may be more. Enjoy your boys. They do grow up very fast. Find peace. I look forward to reading anything you write – whether it is nothing more than this blog or if you find that creativity again and write something else. In the meantime, just enjoy life. *hugs*
Zaniness–I LOVE it! We fit the bill!
I’m glad that you are back. You are not forgotten. I always enjoyed reading your stories and blog posts. You are the first one (atleast for me) to bring funny moments in historical romance novels. Really loved those twists and turns. Will be waiting for more. That’s the least I can do as your fan. 🙂 Sending hugs. ❤
