INTERVIEW BY SHELLEY IRWIN ON THE MORNING SHOW WGVU PBS RADIO

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to be a guest on the WGVU Morning Show. We talked about life storytelling and my memoir, Arranging a Dream: A Memoir. She wondered how we found a floral shop and greenhouse operation for sale in Fremont, Michigan, in 1975. 
she also asked why I wanted to present life storytelling workshops.

ABOUT J.Q. ROSE

Her published mysteries are Deadly Undertaking, Terror on Sunshine Boulevard and Dangerous Sanctuary released by Books We Love Publishing.

J.Q. taught elementary school for several years and never lost the love for teaching passed down from her teacher grandmother and mother. She satisfies that aspect of her character by presenting workshops on Writing Your Life Story.

She decided to take her advice and use the lessons learned from all the years of presentations and pen her memoir, Arranging a Dream: A Memoir. 

Blogging, photography, Pegs and Jokers board games, and travel are the things that keep her out of trouble. She and her husband spend winters in Florida and summers up north with her four grandsons and granddaughter.

Five Fun Facts About J.Q. Rose
1. Fun fact. I like potato chips dipped in ketchup accompanied by a cold glass of chocolate milk.
2. Fun fact. I kicked up my heels as a hobo from Hooverville in the chorus line of the community players production of Annie. So much fun and a dream fulfilled.
3. Fun fact. I helped to build the ark. No, not THAT ark, silly. The ark is the centerpiece of the Ark Park, a playground for the community.
4. Fun fact. In my bio photo, the red Mustang convertible was a surprise birthday gift from my hubby in 1995. Still drives like it’s new.
5. Fun fact. My older brothers and I all played cornet/trumpet in the school band. They made sure to stand out on the front porch when I practiced at home so the neighbors could see they were not the ones tooting out those sour notes.
