Our Feature Writer for April is aspiring novelist, Rosie Ortega, with her action/adventure first chapter submission, Searching. Originally from Southern California, Rosie now lives in Northern Utah near Salt Lake City. Searching is an exciting, fast-paced opening to the book that Rosie plans to turn into a series. She has been working and reworking this story since she was 10 years old and this is the first time it has been placed in the spotlight.
Like most of our writers, Rosie’s favourite part about The Pen Factor is the feedback.
“I always love getting an outside opinion on my writings … I have always felt that people who knew me well would be afraid to give honest feedback so as not to hurt my feelings."
Rosie also enjoys reading the stories of other writers and finds it interesting to see the different techniques used. Rosie hopes that her writing can make people feel something new and different and evoke deep thought.
