Hi, my name is Rosemary. My nationality is English although my parentage stems from celtic roots. My main passion is writing but I also paint, mostly in oils. I am first and foremost a wife, mother and grandmother; previously a practical, down to earth business woman - now retired. Born dyslexic into an academically oriented family in the days before the disability was recognised, early years were not easy. But having to prove myself to myself, has stood me in good stead and toughened my character. I knew I could write - even if I couldn’t spell. My fear of reading in public led to the development of a keen memory. My inborn love of the written word helped me to overcome my disability and to eventually become a mainstream published author. I am now trying my hand at e-publishing. My writings include adult fiction, astrological books, poetry and children’s stories. Although not as young as I used to be, I hope I still remain ‘young at heart', always able to truthfully hold my hand up to a firm belief in the magic of childhood - not the J. K. Rowling kind (although I adore the books and films), but rather the wonderment of the Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy years. My photo is a rather old one - taken many years ago - however at heart it still represents the real me. I love children and equate to them, some might say because deep down I have never entirely grown up. To tell the truth, I hope I never really do.Besides the facebook URL above I also can be found on the Percy Prickles and Friends Page where I showcase my e-books and update my readers with news and information.**remember to click the adult content in order to see and read my novel, "Lust, Love & Lies".January 2014I am in the process of re-editing my books, searching for small errors that have been picked up by readers and for which I apologise. There are a lot of books so it will take some time; please have patience with this dyslexic author. Thank you.
