About Angel Voices

One frigid winter night a week before Christmas, college student Will stumbles into a church during choir practice, bruised by his own father’s hands. He’s out of the closet now—there’s no going back since his fundamentalist father learned the truth—but he’s also out of a home, a family, and a future. Will has nowhere to turn. No one to care.

Except . . . Will’s roommate, Quinn, cares. Maybe too much. He’s been attracted to Will since they moved in together, but never dreamed his crush was gay. With Will’s life in pieces, Quinn doesn’t want to push. He also knows he has more experience than Will, who’s never even been kissed.

Then Will’s father makes a reappearance, and Will has to learn to trust his heart more than the voices of his past. But it’s the season of miracles, faith, and hope, and Quinn is determined to teach Will how to love and be loved.

About Rowan Speedwell

An unrepentant biblioholic, Rowan Speedwell spends half her time pretending to be a law librarian, half her time pretending to be a database manager, half her time pretending to be a fifteenth-century Aragonese noblewoman, half her time . . . wait a minute . . .  Hmm.  Well, one thing she doesn’t pretend to be is good at math.  She is good at pretending, though.

In her copious spare time (hah) she does needlework, calligraphy and illumination, and makes jewelry.  She has a master’s degree in history from the University of Chicago, is a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, and lives in a Chicago suburb with the obligatory Writer’s Cat and way too many books.

  1. Thanks for the post! Angel Voices is queued up on my Kindle.

    Question for Rowan: Do you cast your characters (e.g. think of real people like actors or models who are similar to them)?



    • Usually not, although I’ll occasionally find people that remind me of them afterwards! But in Illumination, an early version of Adam prompted someone to ask if it was Adam Lambert fan fiction. Needless to say, there were some changes made!

  2. I was thinking about how it’s a winter tale but you probably had to write it in a different season all together. Do you just do your writer thing and imagine it all or do you have to get into the spirit of whatever season you’re characters are in, especially over the holidays, to really write it well?

    • I find that when I’m writing, I’m in the world of the book. I think I wrote this in summertime, but sometimes I would get cold from the winter chill even though it was 90 degrees outside…


  3. My question here is do you have a favorite period in history?


    • Probably the British Regency, mainly because I’ve read so much in the period. And it’s a really fun period to write about.
