Louie talks with Sherry Lewis of the UTEP Communication Department and UTEP alum Marie Rose. Marie is the author of “Zwoosh!” about a young boy who rides a rainbow rocket through space and has amazing adventures. The artwork in the book was inspired by the paintings of Van Gogh. The book was recently translated into Spanish by Sherry Lewis. It’s available in a Kindle edition, and the audio Spanish-language version is read by Sherry Lewis.

As Kris Kringle in “Miracle on 34th Street” puts it, “I’m as old as my tongue and a little older than my teeth.”
Where are you from?
I’m a retired army brat, so I grew up all over, as a citizen of the world. Lately, I’m “from” Los Angeles, CA. I moved here the day the L.A. Riots broke out, and stayed for the drought, floods, fires, and ‘quakes. O my!
A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc
My training includes a Master of Arts in Theatre Arts from the University of Texas at El Paso. I’m also a proud alumna of the American Film Institute’s Directing Workshop for Women (through which I directed Dakota Fanning in her first starring role), as well as the Walt Disney Studios Fellowship in Screenwriting, and the Producers Guild of America Diversity Program.
I have to say that I have a wonderful, supportive family. A Cat who is a little less supportive but wonderful anyway. And a great boyfriend and partner in life, love, and business. In fact, I dedicated “Zwoosh!” to my parents and to my boyfriend, Chris, who worked so hard to help me achieve this endeavour. I think I’m pretty lucky.
Fiona: Tell us your latest news?
I have a lot of projects coming into fruition in the public marketplace at this time. My new Indie Rose Books for Kids picture book, ZWOOSH, illustrated by the amazing Susan Lee, was released just this past August on Amazon and Kindle. We’re excited to begin getting first reviews in from children’s book reviewers, and they are everything we could have hoped for. One reviewer has already submitted “Zwoosh!” to the Midwest Book Review, and a major American radio network is looking at doing a little story on the book. And we’re hard at work on “Zwoosh!” the Audible audiobook and interactive app!

Rose’s book, stunningly-illustrated by diverse Los Angeles artist, Susan Lee, along with the wider Indie Rose Books for Kids project, seeks to make bedtime highly-engaging and bring the entire family together for endless happily-ever-afters.
For Immediate Release
Los Angeles, CA – There’s no way to sugar-coat it, bedtime just isn’t fun for kids (and therefore parents!).

However, LA film producer Marie Rose is on a bold mission to make bedtime fun and engaging once again; and her new publishing company’s debut release offers the entire family an out-of-this-world adventure to ensure the light goes out peacefully.
