ROSA - published!

The editor who took Rosa on holiday with her to Hawaii had only one word to say about the novel: "Wonderful!" The book is already published and I'm still pinching myself.

I'm hoping to have a book signing and anecdotes from my writing life in the very near future in Maubourguet to which all local English speaking people will be invited. This is mainly to celebrate the publication [it's taken 20 years] of the novel my husband, Brian, never lost faith in - 'ROSA'., a saga that spans two wars with a heroine who refuses to give up, no matter what Fate throws at her - historic, rape, romance, unrequited love, the dreams of a rags to riches girl, realised despite her alcoholic, amoral mother and her mysterious past...Published by Books We Love of Canada. Find Rosa and all my other books on Amazon.

In 2001 I became a published author for the first time, after a lifetime of being a wannabe writer. Before that there were travel articles in the Saturday Financial Times, nostalgic articles in Evergreen and some short stories on local radio, but my dream had always been to become a novelist and I finally made it. I have lots more books in me waiting to be written. I'm hoping this website creates the impetus to get me going again.
