About Rose Alexander
I’ve had more careers than I care to mention and am currently working full-time as a secondary school English teacher. I write in the holidays, weekends and evenings, whenever I have a chance, although with three children, a husband, a lodger and a cat, this isn’t always as often as I’d like. My book is the result of much hard work, research and patience. The greatest reward possible would be my readers’ enjoyment, so I hope it does it for you!
