This Week’s Episode:

Rosa Swann has been a full-time romance author for two years. She starting writing romance novels while she was working on her master’s degree. Rosa believes in happy endings and making choices that make you happy. She spends most of her day behind the computer, but does all of her planning on paper, because she’ll forget about it otherwise. Having been diagnosed with both ADHD and Autism a decade ago, she has been able to control her brain with a lot of planning and tactics. Recently, she has started to share some of her tactics on her blog.

In this conversation, you will hear Rosa talk about being diagnosed with ADHD and Autism. She explains how they both affect her, and how she has gone about treating both of these diagnoses. We talk a lot about Rosa’s career as a romantic novel author, and how she organizes her work and accomplishes her tasks on a daily basis.
