Rose devoured books at an alarming rate since she first learned to read. As a teen, she discovered the joy of a great romance, well told. Thirty years as a psychologist forged a deep understanding of people and the messes they get into, especially when it comes to love. Writing and adventure are her passions. She wrote her first romance while sailing from Fremantle to Queensland, where she now lives. She has belly-danced with Berbers in the Sahara, unintentionally abseiled upside-down, narrowly escaped an unpleasant fate in the middle-east, and stayed sane through an imminent ultralight plane crash in Zimbabwe. Romance is perhaps her greatest adventure.
