Rosa Ferguson
My foray into the world of words didn't start on paper, but by reading everything I could get my hands on.  
At the age of five years, as soon as I could say 'may I help you?' I worked in my parents variety shop.  By
the third grade, I had been promoted to the job of ordering the magazines and newspapers we sold:
Ebony, Jet, Sepia, Tan, The Indianapolis Recorder, The Pittsburgh Courier and The Chicago Defender.  
This was right up my alley because I got to read them before everyone else.  I often wondered if our
customers knew they were reading "used" material!

In junior high school, I apprenticed under the guidance of the late Mrs. Georgia Lucas of Muncie Indiana
and co-wrote an article for The Indianapolis Recorder.  She wrote the news portion and I wrote " "Teen
Talk".  I knew then I was a writer.

As an adoptee, I wanted to weigh in on the ever increasing popularity of the subject of adoption therefore,
I wrote
LOVED TO DEATH: A Different Kind of Love Story and LOVED TO DEATH: The Truth Unfolds. The
first few pages of  the first  
LOVED TO DEATH: A Different Kind of Love Story, were developed from an
actual dream I experienced.  The rest of the book literally had a mind of its' own. It is a symbolic story
about how adoption "kills" the adoptee.  I am also writing
LOVED TO DEATH: The City Awakens and
Looking for Stella Delaware
which ironically was based on a another dream I experienced!
