Rocsanne Shield is the author of “Save Magic City”. Rocsanne shares with her readers the value of community and saving a city.

Rocsanne is the pen name of Raluca Popov, born in Romania many years ago, when communism was still the way of life in her country. She desired to escape communism and find more about a freer way of life in the West. For this, she left Romania as a tourist, and never looked back. Her education includes Geological Engineering and Construction Estimating, thus being able to find work wherever she went. During all these years she wrote short stories, mostly about the people she met, finding them extremely interesting. But always she was sure she would write a novel someday.

After she retired, she finally found the time to transform her dream into reality, and four novels in the Historical Romance genre were written, one connected to the next through their common heroes and heroines. And here she found herself in a quandary — where to send the banished sorcerer — the solution to her fourth novel, in which Edmund, the bad sorcerer is banished by his enemies, and disappears in thin air.

She says that inspiration comes from the most extraordinary places. In this case it was the TV, watching an animated movie for children. Forgotten was the romance, and children, together with their parents, became the new heroes. When you read the book, please do not forget to give her your opinion of it. Rocsanne/Raluca would love to hear what you have to say.

Yvonne Wu – Tell us about “Save Magic City.”

Rocsanne Shield – When I retired, it was not because I wanted, but because the company went through a very dramatic restructuring — 20% of all the International complex had to be shed, to keep the company profitable. So, when I started writing this book, I did not have a name in mind, I simply put on paper ideas as they came. But after the entire population voted to change the name into Magic City, saving it was of the utmost importance! Hence the name.

Yvonne Wu – Why did you write this book?

Rocsanne Shield – At first, because I wanted to give Edmund a chance to rehabilitate himself of all the bad deeds in his past, but once I had Leo and Leona, I wanted to help them save their
beloved city.
