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!!!!!!!!!

~Soprano/Alto/Tenor (I like my vocal range) ;)

~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?



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

Ivy Rose is an 18 year old history lover an literary enthusiast. Aside from writing, she enjoys being outdoors, eating chocolate, traveling, reading, and doing TaeKwonDo. She resides with her family of 9 on the banks of the Long Lake in eastern Washington.



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
