All those years of writing, finding a publisher, and finally the big day had arrived. Her first fiction book was launched into the world last March on a cold and windy day, and to celebrate the momentous occasion, Colony author Kati Rose decided to visit the cemetery where her parents and older brother were buried.
“I had been anticipating this day for so long, and when I woke up, it felt like Christmas morning with no presents,” Rose said. “I had no idea what I was going to do with myself all day, so I got in my car thinking I was going for a walk, but instead I drove to the cemetery. My mom, dad, and brother were all a big part of my inspiration for writing this book, and it felt fitting to visit them.
