About Me

Welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere! I’m looking forward to getting to know you. But before that, perhaps you’d like to get to know me.


I am:


~Homeschool Grad

~College Freshman

~Born-again Believer


~Big sis to six lovely peeps

~Dog lover

~TaeKwonDo Black Belt 1st Dan (be very afraid)


~COUNTRY GIRL!!!!!!!!!

~Avid reader

~Washingtonian (by the way, Washington is the BEST STATE)

~And last, but certainly not least, a writer.


Things I enjoy:



~Country Music (think Lawson Bates, Randy Travis, Loretta Lynn…and lots more)


~Singing! Harmonizing with my 2 oldest bro’s is just so much fun.





~The color purple in mostly any shade, but lilac is by far my favorite


~Sleeping (someone tell me why sleeping hours seem to shrink with every year of life?!?!?)

~Did I mention chocolate?



Ivy Rose is coffee-drinking country girl who stays up way too late wrapped in fuzzy blankets working through stacks of books while nibbling on chocolate. She is one of those bizarre authors who enjoys tormenting her characters and then crying along with them. In addition to writing tear-inducing books, another talent is tripping over objects that don’t exist. Sitting still has never been easy for this adventurer, but when it must happen, trust that she will be kneading away at a handful of Silly Putty. She is slightly addicted to Converse and owns more colors than she needs—but who’s looking? Beware giving this music lover new songs to listen to; she is known to burst into song at random times with random songs, though selections from Home Free and The Sound of Music are the most likely to wreak havoc on nearby ears. When she’s not hard at work studying or typing away at a novel, she can be found fiddling her heart out on her old German violin.



And since I am a published author now and must maintain some sense of professionalism (ha. ha. ha.), here is my official bio:

Ivy Rose is a young novelist with a passion to create beautiful fiction. She’s been accused of wearing out coffee makers and clearing the entire house of its chocolate supply. Armed with a desire to create scenarios readers can easily relate to, she writes in many genres about ordinary individuals faced with extraordinary choices. When not studying for exams, she can be found practicing fiddle, TaeKwonDo, or ATV-ing the Pacific Northwest.



Do we have any common traits? Tell me tell me…I want to know! Please leave a comment or send an email; I won’t know you stopped by unless you do!!!

    Hi Ivy,
    I just found your blog through Pinterest (I’m one of those people you mentioned who is ADDICTED to Pinterest). I LOVE the sound of your new book and I’m excited to buy it and start reading! I am also home schooled, but in Australia and I haven’t graduated yet (I’m in year 12 this year). I am also a writer but I only write for myself. I also love singing and reading (although my Mum doesn’t like me reading, unless I’m on a holiday because when I pick up a book I do not put it down! I have stayed up 48 hours at a time just to finish a book). I cannot wait to pick up your exciting new book and I look forward to watching you ascend to writer royalty!

      Hi Zalliah! Gotta love Pinterest! :) How neat that you are in Australia! And that’s great that you write for yourself…I did too (at first :) ). It sounds like we would get along well! And yikes–reading for 48 hours? That’s pretty incredible! I hope you enjoy my book–I can’t wait until it’s out! :)

      Thanks so much for commenting!!!

      Really?! That’s awesome!! I’m up near Spokane. You must live close to the border of you’re up on a mountain. ;) Awesome either way!

    Wow! I am discovering more and more homeschool, teen girl, writers out there! This is great! I am currently starting on my first novel, do you have any advice for a beginner?
    I am so glad I found your site and I can’t wait to read your book!
    PS- I love chocolate too!

    • Ivy says:

      Hehe…yes, there are a lot of us. :D Good for you starting your first novel! I would encourage you to read as many writing blogs/how-to books as you can, but take the advice within with a grain of salt. Don’t get too caught up in any one particular way of doing something…use the information you glean to find your own way!

      I’m glad to have you here! Thanks for commenting!

      CHOCOLATE!!!! :D

    Ahh! We have so much in common! I am an 18 year old homeschool graduate, who loves coffee and chocolate to. :D Reading and writing are two of my favorite things to do. What instrument do you play? I play the piano.

    So glad I found your blog. :D
