What's in a name? Robert Galbraith, Silence Dogood, Megan Lindholm, and to be conspiratorial, even the old bard William Shakespeare, may have or not have used a pen name. A "Nom de Plume" if you will. As such, Rose Plieseis is a collaboration of two longtime friends who came together to tell a story.

Hayley Rose is an international award-winning and best-selling author of children's books. Dedicated to bringing fun, educational, and interactive books to kids, she makes her home in Scottsdale, Arizona, and is a goat yoga enthusiast.

Russell Plieseis started writing stories and poems at a young age, garnering recognition and awards for his imagination and compelling poetic license. He makes his home in Tempe, Arizona with his son and is a nearly full-time dog sitter.
