Product description

About the Author

Inspired by the Malory Towers and St. Clare’s novels of Enid Blyton, Rosie spent much of her childhood either with her nose in a book or writing stories and plays, enlisting the neighbours’ children to perform them to anyone who would watch.

Professional life, though, was to take her into a world of structure and rules, where creativity was frowned upon. It wasn’t until she was finally able to leave rigid thinking behind that she returned to writing, her research into her ancestry and a growing fascination for rural life in the nineteenth century inspiring and shaping her early stories.

She now resides with her husband in North Devon – the setting for the Woodicombe House Saga – where she enjoys the area’s natural history, exploring the dramatic scenery, and keeping busy on her allotment.

It was staring at the ancestors on her family tree and wondering about the nitty gritty of their daily lives that first inspired Rosie to start writing historical fiction. However, it wasn't until she moved to live in North Devon that the idea for the Woodicombe House series came about, ultimately resulting in six novels that follow two generations of women through times of war. When not writing, Rosie will either be on her allotment or else exploring the West Country, where she is always on the lookout for inspiration for further novels.

Rosie Meddon is the author of The Housekeeper’s Daughter, A Wife’s War, and The Soldier’s Return – all set in North Devon during World War I – along with Her Patriotic Duty and Her Heart's Choice, which follow the next generation of women into World War II. The final book in the series, Ties That Bind, will be published in ebook and paperback in February 2022.

Rosie is represented by Kiran Kataria of Keane Kataria Literary Agency.

Her books are published in e-book and paperback by Canelo, and in audio and large print versions by Magna Ulverscroft.
