(Wade Rouse)

Viola Shipman is a pen name for Wade Rouse, a popular, award-winning memoirist. Rouse chose his grandmothers name, Viola Shipman, to honor the woman whose charm bracelet and family stories inspired him to write his debut novel, which is a tribute to all of our elders. Rouse lives in Michigan and writes regularly for People and Coastal Living, among other places, and is a contributor to All Things Considered. To date, The Charm Bracelet has been translated into nine languages.

Novellas and Short Stories
Viola Shipman recommends
The Summer Swap (2024)
Sarah Morgan
"The perfect summer novel - sharp, smart and so much fun!"
Paradise Girls (2022)
Sandy Gingras
"Paradise Girls is so much more than your typical beach read. Sandy Gingras' tightly written debut has important lessons at its charming core: We become our best selves again when we go on vacation, we often have to get lost to rediscover who we were meant to be and starting over is scary but ultimately can make our lives even more beautiful than a sunset over the ocean."
Gilt (2022)
Jamie Brenner
"A summer sparkler about diamonds, revenge, family heirlooms, but--at its heart--the one thing we all desire most: Love. Gilt is a gem."
