Interview with Rosary McQuestion, author of Once Upon Another Time

Aubrey McCory’s husband died in a tragic accident when she was twenty-eight and pregnant, which ended her happily-ever-after fairytale dream. Six years later, she’s still emotionally damaged with an unhealed heart, and sometimes fantasizes about what it would be like to see her husband one last time, like in her favorite movie “Ghost” when Sam said his final goodbye to Molly. Then five days before the seventh anniversary of his death, a glitch in the universe gives Aubrey the psychic ability to hear what people are thinking. And, by all accounts, she seems to also have made a psychic connection with the dearly departed – namely her deceased husband.

As fate would have it, she also meets hunky Gavin Donnelly – whom she feels might be the next Mr. Right – and her life becomes topsy-turvy.

Her hippy parents, the Abbie and Anita Hoffman of suburbia, have Aubrey questioning her sanity after they leak a secret that Aunt Millie threw herself off the Brooklyn Bridge after hearing voices. Then there’s the fiasco of Aubrey trying to hold a connection with the dead when her new psychic ability doesn’t come with an instruction manual or tech support. And she can’t lean on her best friend, former debutante Laura Wentworth, who inhabits the heady spheres of society, without looking like a kook.

Aubrey’s life was complicated enough before photos rattled off bookshelves and the sound of wind chimes played in her head. Soon she’s juggling a demanding career, a six-year-old son, a freaky spiritualist, and the belief that her husband’s ghost is trying to tell her something of great importance. All while she tries to reclaim her heart and not lose the next love of her life.

What genre is it?
Paranormal Romance.

What kind of readers will it appeal to?
Once Upon Another Time will appeal to readers who want to be surprised and who enjoy a fierce kind of love and those who like to unravel a mystery, and are believers in fantastical things that are beyond our control and comprehension. It’s a story for those who love the blending of the “real” world with that of a supernatural world. It would also appeal to those who like humor.

Complete this sentence for us: if you like _________________, you’ll love Once Upon Another Time.
If you like books by Lolly Winston (Good Grief), Nora Roberts or Susan Donovan you’ll love my book.

What inspired you to write Once Upon Another Time?
I’ve always been intrigued with the spirit world – spooky unexplained sounds during the middle of the night, the world from beyond trying to claw its way through to our world. Or a chill that rattles the spine when one senses that something unnatural is near. However, most consuming in my life has always been the question of what becomes of us after we die.

How did that begin?
My brother died in a tragic, unexpected way, and therefore, I wanted to write a paranormal book that gives people the feeling of hope and and that nothing in this world is ever impossible.

You seem to have achieved that.
One Amazon reviewer sums the book up very nicely: “Page turner. Interesting. Mystique. Makes you wonder, think, and want to believe in life’s miracles. Single parent & widow coming to peace with the past and people in it.”

Have you written any other books that we should read next?
Once Upon Another Time is my debut novel.

Tell us a bit about yourself.
I was born in Brooklyn, New York, grew up in Wisconsin, and I currently live in Michigan with my husband and our three cats. Following a long career in advertising and marketing, which included owning my own agency as well as having served as director of marketing and creative services for a well-known party goods manufacturer, I now indulge in my love of writing—full time.

Do you have a website where we can keep up with your work?

How can we follow you on Twitter and/or Facebook?
I enjoy making friends with people on Twitter (@RoseMcQuestion) and on Facebook –

What’s next?
I am currently working on a mystery trilogy.
