About Roslyn McFarland

Ros pic

Roslyn McFarland is the author of “See No Sea” (currently available in both e-book and paperback formats, and audiobook) and it’s follow up “Hear No Sea”, the short story “Soldier Boy” (originally released in the Fall of 2014 Northwest Independent Writers Association Anthology), and “Light the Way” (Loves Light book one of the Paradisi Chronicles, Book two to follow shortly). All are nice clean Young Adult Romances.

In 2006 she was struck down by health problems, which progressed into full immobility over the course of six and a half years, undiagnosed. Going out of her mind via the enormous worry-frustration-pain-boredom combo she shouldered, Roslyn’s solution and salvation came in the form of writing, as she expelled a childhood recurring dream onto paper. The completion of her first novel coincided with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease. Treatment and at least a partial cure quickly following cleared the way for editing and preparation for publication. God works in mysterious ways.

She’s already outlining book three of the No Sea Trilogy, which she hopes to release within the next year, as well as a new Short and a follow up to her Paradisi book. In addition, she has taken on the role of editor and designer for the Color Your Own Story Book collection (“Doodle Duck”, “Digger Dog”, & “Cool Cat” thus far), written by her own daughter and illustrated by local April Bullard. Already amassing a lengthy list of future series ideas, Roslyn hopes to be able to continue turning dreams into reality for many years to come.

In 2016 Roslyn started designing covers and marketing materials for her fellow authors, well aware of what it was like to pay for a poorly constructed cover herself. She discovered a real talent for it, and enjoys the additional outlet to her creativity immensely.

Roslyn currently lives in Oregon with her husband, two extraordinarily active and strong willed little girls (karma) and a house full of fur kids (cats and dogs, and a plethora of fish still hanging in there).
