Short biography
WADE ROUSE is the internationally bestselling author of seven books, including his debut novel The Charm Bracelet, written under the pen name VIOLA SHIPMAN.

Wade chose his grandmother’s name, Viola Shipman, as a pen name to honor the woman whose heirlooms, life and lessons inspire his fiction. Wade's work has been selected multiple times as a Must-Read by NBC’s Today Show, featured on Chelsea Lately, and been chosen three times by the nation's independent booksellers as an Indie Next Pick. Wade is a contributing writer for Coastal Living, a regular contributor to All Things Considered and Michigan Radio, and his writing and essays have appeared in People, Good Housekeeping, Time, Forbes, Salon, the Washington Post, Metrosource, Out, The Advocate, Publisher’s Weekly and Writer’s Digest, among others.
In addition to his fiction, Wade is also the author of four humorous memoirs.

Wade earned his bachelor of arts in communications, with honors, from Drury University and his master of science in journalism from Northwestern University. He divides his time between Saugatuck, Michigan, and Palm Springs, California, and is also an acclaimed writing teacher who has mentored numerous students to become published authors.
