~ WHAT ROSE CALLOWAY MEANS UT US ~
Oh Rose Calloway. Our queen! Our fire-breather and volcanic blaze of fury! How we love you so! We could write many odes to Rose Calloway, since she's a combination of women that we admire and revere and look up to. She's this strange mix of passionate and cold. Loyal and fierce but guarded and cautious. Connor Cobalt says it best in Kiss the Sky: "She's a complicated equation." One that doesn't need to be solved ;)
We never thought we'd have the opportunity to write a character like Rose. Growing up, we were as obessed with books and tv as we are now. And we craved to read or see a female that empowered other women, that empowered us by telling us that our worth is not determined by how many parties we attend, if we have a boyfriend in high school, lose our virginity before college, or by the number of friends we have. You can be strong and be a virgin past high school. You can be fierce and feminine. You can be a mixture of so many things and still feel as powerful as the person next to you.
We wanted that character in our lives as young women. The one who'd help lessen the pressure that young girls constantly face from society's demands.
And we never found her throughout our adolescence. So to have the opportunity to write her in our twenties -- it's meant the world to us. Little parts of Rose remind us of our mom. She never goes without high heels. She's so independent and so confident -- she makes you feel as equally brazen standing next to her.
We weren't sure if people would connect with Rose, but to know that even one person has felt inspired or empowered by Rose Calloway -- our job is done, and there are tears in our eyes thinking about it. We're happy that we could create her, but even more so we're so happy that you love her. Thank you.
