Where do you live?
What was your last work published? I have been doing commissioned portraits of kids and animals and homes…but my last piece published was probably for a story in Wee Ones Magazine for children.
What is your next work coming out? Besides a few children’s magazine illustrations; I started work on another book for
What are you reading? Like most of us author/illustrators I’m always reading something! But a few weeks ago my husband, daughter, and I took a class on teaching adults to read: http://www.christianliteracy.com/index.html
We’re part of a ministry in a neighboring town that would like to start a program to help not only adults who haven’t learned to read but also students who are struggling in school. I’m excited about sharing my love of reading; and hopefully opening up an entire new world for some of them.
So, right now; I’m reading the teacher’s manuals and workbooks.
Where is your favorite place to snuggle down and read? I have a comfortable (and slightly beat-up) old cushioned chair next to a window in my studio; the view is of the woods where I can see white-tail deer, squirrels, chipmunks, turkey, and birds etc…etc!! It’s lovely and peaceful.
Do you have a website? Yes
What is the URL? www.RoseGauss.com
Do you have a favorite quote? I have lots of them, but at the moment: this one from Helen Keller has been speaking to me:I have a tendency to get frightened easily and here was a woman, who couldn’t see or hear but had such courage and boldness…it certainly makes you think twice, doesn’t it?
