Aloha! My name is Rose Tigarden, and I write Hawaiian-themed stories set in my beloved islands. When I look out my window, I see the view featured on my book cover: Waikiki, the ocean, and Diamond Head. If I walk out onto my lanai and look down from my twenty-eighth floor perch, I see the courtyard with the tropical plantings and koi ponds, our pool is on the roof. Only blocks from my Waikiki condo sits the world’s largest open air shopping center, 2.4 million square feet of elegant, sophisticated shopping and dinning.
