“One of the most beautifully crafted, moving stories I have read in many years. Rose is a character that will live with the reader long after the book is finished. “

My long promised book is OUT! After a short technical hitch, both infuriating and inconvenient, I have access to my website once more. At last I can let you know what’s what, especially regarding my latest book… After two years of hard slog, writing, rewriting, sleepless nights and fraught days, ROSE REMEMBERED is now available as a paperback. (via Amazon link) This is my best book to date. I love the cover, and am very pleased with the way the plot developed. (It still amazes me when my characters begin to dictate the story-line, pushing and pulling me – often kicking and screaming – until they get their own way.) Rose certainly knew where her story was going. I listened to her and recorded her life from her birth, in a rat ridden basement in Angel Road, Hackney,1905, until her her death… but you’ll have to read the book to find out what happens in between.
Exploring Rose’s life, getting to know her and the people she encountered along the way, proved to be more intriguing than I could have dreamed when I began the journey. I hope you enjoy her story. If you liked Harriet ( THE HAUNTING OF HARRIET) you will love Rose. She is just as feisty, forthright and flawed, yet equally as vulnerable.Having lived with her, argued with her, even battled with her for two years she got under my skin until I feel I know, understand and adore her. But, you must make your own minds up. Be sure to let me know what you think.
The book will eventually be available in kindle and an audio version should be out by the New Year… sooner if all goes to plan. Meanwhile, it’s only a tenner and remember a book wraps so easily it makes the perfect Christmas present!
Love, and best wishes,
