A fairy tale princess? Rosalyn? No way!
Well, actually, maybe a little …
In her own way.
Just like everything else with Rosalyn, here she breaks the mold!
Rosalyn, appropriately dubbed Rox by her dad due to her love of Rock ‘n’ Roll, is a thirtysomething woman who possesses a sunny personality that is laced with quirks. She seeks acceptance in a world that ridicules her for her eccentric wardrobe and her eclectic music collection. When she accidentally summons Rock ‘n’ Roll deity Peter Lane (the king of the mods) back from the dead, her world flips upside down.
I’m betting this doesn’t match any of the fairy tale princesses you know. So how is she like one? And just which one is she like?
Well, with Rox you need to think out of the box and delve into the vast world of pop culture. In Scary Modseters … and Creepy Freaks (Anyone get the David Bowie reference?), Rox’s new love interest, Niles, comments that she is a “Cinderella Sunshine” type. While that may not mean much to you, it means everything to her. “Cinderella Sunshine” was a song from the 60’s, and a slightly obscure one at that. It was done by the legendary Paul Revere and the Raiders and talks about a girl who weeps from time.
Not only does Rox get the reference, Niles knowing it makes her see him in a whole new light. Even more importantly, her reaction drives home to the reader just how different she is.
“It’s hard to be somebody you’re not. You nailed it with the ‘Cinderella Sunshine’ reference.” While I keep my cool outward demeanor, inside my mind my arms are being thrown up in surrender to the truth I wish I could change. “As much as I love who I am, I feel completely out of place in this world.”
The events that transpire in her life after this are like a fairy tale. Niles is her knight in shining armor, yet he has an issue that could prevent him from ever finding true happiness. Meanwhile, she’s got the ghost of Peter Lane on her tail. He’s no fairy godmother, but he holds the key to Niles and Rox’s happiness. Is Peter willing to so what it takes to save the day?
Scary Modsters … and Creepy Freaks is available on Amazon.
