Today I have author Rosie Travers joining. me on my blog to tell you more about herself and her brand new book release, which is out in August.
I grew up in Southampton on the south coast of England and loved escaping into a good book as soon as I could read. As a teenager I scribbled numerous short stories and novels, none of which I was ever brave enough to show anyone. After working in local government for many years I moved across the Atlantic to Southern California in 2009 when my husband took up a three year dream overseas assignment. Life as an ex-pat wife wasn’t quite as glamorous and exciting as I first envisaged, so to fend off homesickness and culture shock I began a blog about our life in Los Angeles, which re-ignited my creative juices. When I returned to the UK I undertook a creative writing course, and the rest, as they say, is history.
I write entertaining, heart-warming stories sprinkled with romance and intrigue. My debut novel The Theatre of Dreams will be published on 1 August 2018.
Theatre of Dreams Blurb
Musical theatre actress Tara is down on her luck and in desperate need of a job.
When terminally-ill octogenarian Kitty invites her to take over the running of her former dance academy in the old-fashioned resort of Hookes Bay, Tara thinks she’s found her guardian angel.
But it soon becomes very clear Kitty is being far from benevolent.
Too late, Tara realises helping Kitty will signal the end of an already tarnished career, unless she can pull off the performance of a life-time.
