C.L. Rose joined Filles Vertes Publishing as the Acquisitions Editor shortly after its opening, and she couldn’t have made a better decision! C.L., more commonly referred to as Courtney or Court by her friends and clients, has been a professional writer since 2011 and a professional editor since 2012. She has worked with clients from all walks of the publishing world including self-published, small press published, and traditionally published authors, including some who have won various writing awards for their work. She is also a former intern at Inklings Literary Agency.

Courtney has a degree in Psychology with a minor in English Literature, and is currently working toward a second degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Creative Writing. She’s a mother and enjoys spending time with her family and doing anything that involves being near the water. Some of her favorite authors include Herman Melville, Charles Dickens, Lora Leigh, J.K. Rowling, and Stephen King. Her all-time favorite children’s book is “The Lorax” by Dr. Suess, and she loves coloring in her spare time. She also loves watching anything on NatGeo and the Food Network, and her favorite shows include HBO’s The Newsroom, True Blood, and Game of Thrones, and CBS’ Criminal Minds.

As for what Court is looking for in her FVP submission inbox, she’s interested in both fiction and nonfiction. On the nonfiction side, she loves uncommon memoirs and humorous cookbooks. Honestly, she loves any type of cookbook because she’s not the best in the kitchen! As for fiction, there isn’t any genre that she doesn’t enjoy. From erotica to historical, she likes it all, and she’s looking for work within the Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult categories.
