Author Biography

G.K. De Rosa has been an avid reader from a very young age. At the precocious age of two, while living in Italy, she had memorized an entire children’s book in Italian and expertly turned the pages at the exact right moments of the story. As she grew up, she always enjoyed literature, no doubt having been instilled with a love of story telling from her early years in Catholic school where she was greatly influenced by exemplary teachers who taught her the value of English and Literature. Though she did not pursue writing in college and instead went for the more traditional route of International Business inspired by her love for travel and all things foreign, after a move to New York City, she found her creative writing side calling once again. She began writing a restaurant review blog, City Lights and Tasty Bites, detailing her other passion – food! The hectic hustle and bustle of the city, combined with long commuting times gave her the opportunity to spend more time reading and rekindled a lost love. After reading countless books in many diverse genres over the two years in New York City, and returning to her home state of Florida, she felt compelled to write something for herself. She had always felt particularly drawn to Young Adult novels and having been an eternal romantic at heart, a fantasy romance was a natural choice. She currently lives in South Florida with her real life Prince Charming and their fur baby, Nico the German shepherd.

In Wilder, the first book in The Guardian Series, a paranormal romance by G.K. DeRosa, Celeste Wilder is an eighteen-year-old girl about to go to her dream university in the fall. A romantic who wishes to be swept off her feet like the heroines in all of her favorite movies and books, Celeste soon bumps into the gorgeous and very mysterious Constantin brothers who introduce her to an exciting new world steeped in the supernatural, with vampires and sorcerers and dangerous men harboring centuries-old vendettas. It's a world that she never knew existed but one she also belongs in when she learns that she is part of the bloodline of a secret organization, The Guardians. It's an exciting life, but a dangerous one, and soon she'll have to make a choice or follow her destiny.

Wilder: The Guardian Series by G.K. DeRosa follows all the beats of the paranormal genre. Fans will get two hot guys to choose from, lots of secrets to unearth, and an ending that is sure to leave them hungry for more. Wilder is told from multiple points of view, and since there are a few flashbacks peppered throughout I was left confused in the beginning. However, Nico and Roman do provide a nice bit of distraction! Fans of The Vampire Diaries, The Mortal Instruments, and The Fallen series may find a lot to like by picking up a copy of Wilder and diving into this paranormal series.
