About Me :
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Rosetta Diane Hoessli (‘Ronni’ to my friends), and you pronounce my last name ‘Hesley’ - the ‘O’ is silent. I’m a military brat and I’ve lived all over the world, but I’ve been a resident of San Antonio, Texas since 1963. My husband, Kevin, and I have been married for a very long time (we were high school sweethearts), have one beautiful daughter, two terrific grandkids, and two much-loved furbabies.

I’ve been a freelance writer for years, but now I’ve stepped into the rather solitary world of fiction and it’s so much fun! My first novel is entitled WHISPERS THROUGH TIME, published by The Wild Rose Press and just released in August, 2021. WHISPERS THROUGH TIME is the first book in a planned series by the same name in which Sierra Masters, a confident, well-known novelist, finds herself in many different historical situations when she discovers she possesses a unique gift passed down through the women in a Native American family she never knew she had.

I’ve been fascinated by American Indian history since 2000, when Kevin and I took a long RV trip through South Dakota, focusing primarily on the Black Hills, the Badlands, the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and Wounded Knee, where a massacre took place in 1890 and an occupation occurred in 1973. The story of WHISPERS THROUGH TIME is a natural progression from that journey.

I’m currently working on my second novel of the WHISPERS THROUGH TIME series entitled DIABLO CANYON. This book will be set in the gorgeous Big Bend Country of West Texas, and involves hidden treasure, a century-old vendetta between two ranching families, and a couple of young lovers caught in the middle of it all.
