Estrella Rose began writing her own stories since June 2010 when she wrote her first story called "There Is No Other Way", which was inspired by a dream she saw in one of the days. In July 2010, Rose released her second story "A Christmas Carol". In August 2010, she wrote the third story "Towards The Dreams And Changes". Then the story "Like Two Drops Of Water" was released in September 2010, "Between Light And Darkness" came to life in October, 2010, and the story "Between Light And Darkness 2" was out on November 2010.
All these stories were made in the game The Sims 3 by taking screenshoots and adding a describtion to them. As Rose says, all these stories were inspired by Barbie movies she watched in childhood. For example, "There Is No Other Way" had some similarity to the animation movie "Barbie As The Island Princess", while "A Christmas Carol" was inspired by the movie "Barbie: A Christmas Carol". "Barbie's Diaries" was the inspiration for "Towards The Dreams And Changes", "Like Two Drops Of Water" is a remake of "Barbie As The Princess and The Pauper". "Between Light And Darkness" is an original story while the second part of this story is a remake of "Barbie And The Magic Of The Rainbow". At the moment, Rose has text only for "Like Two Drops Of Water" and 2011's original story called "Adrenaline And Drive" while the others were lost forever. However, she still has all the screenshoots for all the stories she has written.
In November 2010, after finishing the work on "Between Light And Darkness 2", Estrella Rose decided to work on a new original story. That's how she came up with an idea of writing the story called "At Sunset Of The Day". As Rose loved watching the show "America's Next Top Model", she decided to write a story about a photomodel that runs into problems and wants to run away from them. This story was partly inspired by the animation movie "Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale", but it did not copy the story line — only a main idea of running away. That's how this story was born and published for the first time on her birthday on December 2010.
As Rose says, this story was originally planned to be something like a horror story, but this plan did not come true. Besides, all the titles for the stories were chosen mostly because "they sounded beautiful". After writing the story "Adrenaline And Drive" in January 2011, Rose began working on the second part of the story "At Sunset Of The Day" in February 2011. It got the title "At Sunset Of The Day 2: Fantasy Of Love" and became an original story.
When Estrella completed this work, she stopped writing anything for two years and came back to writing in the end of 2013 to re-write the "At Sunset Of The Day" series. That's how it got the new name "Stay Strong, Stay Brave, Stay Happy" that was inspired by the phrase Rose and her former Internet friends used somewhere in 2011-2012. The new rewritten Russian version of the first book was released on October, 31st 2014 on Wattpad under the name "Stay Strong, Stay Brave, Stay Happy". On January 11th, 2015, Estrella Rose published the rewritten Russian version of the second book under the name "When We Have Love" on Wattpad. Later, she released the English versions of these stories on June 27th 2015 (the first book) and September, 21st 2015 (the second book).
But later in 2016, Rose deleted all the books from her accounts to rewrite them again and improve the English translation. It took a few years to make changes and came up with new titles. Besides, the book series title was shortened to "Stay Strong, Brave And Happy". The updated version of the first book that got a new name "The Sins Of The Past" was eventually released on February, 13th 2022, while the second book "The Broken Hearts Story" saw the world on April, 21st 2022, the third book "The Secrets Hidden In The Scars" was out on August, 28th 2022, and the fourth book "The Lost And Forgotten Memories" was released on May, 28th 2023.
