BIOGRAPHY

Top ranking romantic fiction author Rusty Blackwood is a popular romance drama writer of the heart. She has a flair for pulling her readers into the romance and suspense within her books as no other author can.

Rusty believes the flair for fantasy is anything the mind wishes it to be, and she is a master at this. Within her expressive mind is found an endless array of romance, passion, textures, and colors to sweep the reader to exotic, faraway places where anything is possible, proving that her words really do leave you breathless.

Canadian born Blackwood, who chose her plume de nom by combining both the colour of her russet hair with her estranged husbands’ great, great, Scottish grandmother’s maiden name, grew up on her paternal grandfather’s farm in southwestern Ontario, Canada where she developed her love of writing while still in grade school, entering numerous competitions and writing exhibitions throughout her area.

She attributes her love of writing to her late father James, and to the late Gladys Carroll, her elementary teacher. Although unprofessionally trained in the field, Rusty has always had an affinity for the written word, a gift to express it, and has demonstrated this talent many times since becoming a serious writer in 2001.

Miss Blackwood is a bronze medalist winner in the 2006 Annual International Library of Poetry, sponsored through PoetryPoem.com, for her 2005 poem, Desire. She has written an eclectic array of contemporary and traditional poetry. Now working and ready to release her next book, the author now resides in the cultural city of St. Catharines, Ontario.

    • What is that one thing you think readers generally don't know about your specific genre?

      • My favorite genre, and the one of which I am best known, is romance. However, I often think that many readers of this genre expect sugar and spice and all things nice, the exalted prince on his white steed rescuing the damsel in distress, and always happy endings. They somehow forget that romance is seldom like this, especially after trials and tribulations that many couples often face. I write my romance novels realistically, meaning that you may be discouraged or disappointed with my stories, especially the endings. I sometimes make them bitter-sweet, often leave them to the reader's imagination, but I never have the prince waking the sleeping beauty with a magic kiss. I like to read romance in the way I write it, and I very much enjoy a wonderful, sensual story that sweeps you right into it, yet I prefer it be as it often is, honest.

    • When you were young, did you ever see writing as a career or full-time profession?

      • Not really. I very much enjoyed writing, it was one of my favorite activities, but in the late 50's and early 60's the main career opportunities high-schools offered for young women looking towards their future, were secretary, nurse, or teacher. Anything else was either not considered, or badly discouraged, especially when it was thought a girl would simply marry, become a housewife, and mother. I'm glad that has changed.

      • Of course I do, but when I do it is still written in a fictitious way. I often pull from my life experiences or base a story on such because I have lived it and therefore can write it both believably, and realistically.
