Odessa Rose was born and reared in Baltimore City, which serves as the backdrop for her fiction.  At a very young age she became an avid reader and writer of fiction, having been inspired by my mother, who is a voracious reader of horror stories, especially those of Stephen King.  After reading a story in Readers Digest, Rose told her mother that she wanted to be a writer.  Her mother’s response was, “Well, write, baby.”  So she began writing short stories and tried her hand at a novel or two.  But she wasn’t sure if she had what it took to be a “real” writer.
