 About the Author, Rosalyn McMillan
Rosalyn McMillan is a dedicated wife and devoted mother of four, and grandmother of five, who is currently surviving both rheumatoid arthritis and Alopecia Totalis, a disease that causes bodily hair loss.  Rosalyn worked as a sewing machine operator at Ford Motor Company for nineteen years before medically retiring.  She used the challenges in her own life as inspiration to become a successful novelist.  Rosalyn loves to research newsworthy stories and use them as sub-plots in her real-life novels.
Her first novel, Knowing, debuted as a highly successful initial achievement.  Knowing sold over 70,000 hardcover copies and over 400,000 paperbacks.  It was a national best-seller and charted admirably on many book lists.
Rosalyn then followed the success of her first book with One Better, then Blue Collar Blues, The Flip Side of Sin.  This Side of Eternity was Rosalyn’s fifth novel; the plot centered on the sanitation workers strike in 1968.
Rosalyn remains a loyal student of her profession by reading two to three hundred books a year.  She feels that it’s imperative for an author to keep abreast of the New York Times best-sellers as well as fresh voices of fiction.
Some of her favorite authors are John Sanford, Alice Walker, Maya Angelou, John Grisham, Toni Morrison, Eric Jerome Dickey, Kimberla Lawson-Roby and Terry McMillan.
Currently, she lives in Memphis, TN, with her husband, John, where they relax fishing in their stocked pond.
