I can honestly say that Roswell got me through a very difficult time in my life--when I was finishing GRAVITY and then writing ANTARIAN SKY, I had lost identical twins and was still carrying the third triplet (I had twins and a singleton), who is my now BEAUTIFUL daughter Riley. At the time, so many people talked about the emotion in ANTARIAN SKY--people wrote me that the story healed their hearts and that kind of thing. Well, what I couldn't really express at the time was that it was MY healing too. Getting to write and share stories that came from my heart, and my feelings of loss and also joy, was such a big part of my own journey. I'll always love my Roswell friends.
hugs! D

Hey De! I'm *SO* sorry that's it's taken me a week to get back here....I've had some changes to my work position since the first of this year and it's really put the kibosh on my internet play time.

Anyway...I'm going to risk sounding really sappy here, but I just wanted to say that I think of all your fics, ANTARIAN SKY is closet to my heart. I remember very vividly the trouble you were having with your pregnancy at that time (while you were writing HTDC & GRAVITY). My heart broke for you then. And don't get me wrong, I love HTDC&GRAVITY,they are two of my all time favorite RosFics, but there was *something* that just got to me (still does) about AS. I definitely think you are right about the emotion of that piece being in the forefront. That and I loved the idea of both Max & Michael as artists. I was really bummed when you didn't finish AN :wink: (Not that I'm needling you about it or anything... :lol: )

On a lighter note, I'm glad to hear the Riley is doing well. I'm also glad that I'm still here to enjoy the fruits of your (FINALLY PUBLISHED! :wink: YAY!! Ok...so, I'm still doing a Happy Dance for you :D ) labors. I meant it when I said...I can't wait for October and Parallel Heat!

{{HUGS}} back to you,
Jody

Hey Deidre, I just wanted to give you an amazing congratulations. I haven't been back here in forever and a day but I came back and I was SO excited to see that someone has been published!

It is definitely my dream, so seeing you succeeding gives me hope for the future. I will go out and buy your books and I am rooting for you 100%.

Deidre, OMG... I just loved your stories. I can't wait for the third one to come out. Are you gonna write any more books for this series, or is this it? Please tell me you'll be writing some more. I love your characters. They seem so realistic.

Hi Deidre. I don't know if you remember me from so long ago, but I wanted to say congrats on getting published! I loved GRAVITY and if this series is anything like that, I know I'm going to love it. This is the first I'm hearing of their release, so it looks like I've got some catching up to do. Can't wait!

Hey, Lizzy!
For some reason I'd missed this post the last time I was here. Sorry!! Yes, there are more books coming in the series. PARALLEL SEDUCTION publishes in a couple of months, actually, and then in December, PARALLEL DESIRE will come out. I also have an Amazon short in the works, PARALLEL FIRE and that should be live in the next few months via Amazon. More on that soon!

Here's the link for SEDUCTION:

Hey RosDeidre! I'm a long time fan of Roswell and you! I read one of your series' a few years ago (How to Dissapear Completely and Gravity Always Wins) and I fell in love! At that time I couldn't find a completed version of Back to Save the Universe and was wondering, did you ever finish that story and if so, where oh where could i find it? I stopped reading/writing fanfiction for the longest time (classes got in the way) but now i have a little more freetime and have spent tons of time trying to remember who the author was and what my favorite series of all time was and wam bam i joined today and saw you're name and a light bulb came on! (the next few hours shall be spent rereading the series :D )

and as i read over the past little paragraph i realize how silly i sound and how little sense i actually made... haha but basically i'm just curious about Back to Save the Universe and definitely want to let you know i think you're absolutely fabulous and an incredibly talented author! :)

ps: congratulations on being published! i can't wait to lighten my pockets and dive into that series soon! :)
