Introducing Rose English ~ Author of One Breath

160501 May Day 29

Rose English is also hard at work preparing for the UKIndieLitFest 2016.

A perfect name for an author who lives in the heart of England in Herefordshire, which speaks to me of apple orchards, cows grazing in the meadows flanked by a backdrop of the hills and mountains of the Welsh borders.

Her writing is beautifully crafted, moving and sends tingles down your spine. Here is my review of ‘One Breath:

One Breath by Rose English

This short story takes your breath away – literally. When you read it make sure you find a quiet spot ~ in the garden would be perfect ~ but certainly one where you will not be disturbed for half an hour. I’ve read it twice already.

Beautifully written, it tells the story of Dorothy, or Dotty as her ever loving husband Albert likes to call her ~ oh, what can I say without spoiling the story for you. This is a tale of love and tragedy and you will probably shed a tear or two, out of joy as well as pain. Dotty has a love for her garden, in which lies the symbolism of all that is significant in her life, including a rose to commemorate her ‘almost’ still born baby, Grace.

There is humour, fantasy and emotion woven through this tale, which won second prize in an online competition via ‘The Daily Bookworm’.  I hope that Rose English will go on to write novels and I believe her name will be one to watch out for in future years.

What more can I say but to wish her well in her writing and I promise to read  ‘The Magic of grandfather Time’ next Christmas. I will certainly buy a signed copy and I look forward to meeting Rose English at the UK Indie Lit Festival on 23rd July in Bradford.

One Year On and many thanks – To The UK Indie Literary Festival

One year on since ‘Murder Now and Then‘ was published and there are many folks I’d like to thank. Firstly to the team at The UK Indie Literary Festival for being so supportive, especially Rose English and Dawn Singh who have worked tirelessly on our behalf. Great people!

You can find a plethora of authors on their website Indieliteraryfest.weebly.com and they are on Facebook too!

ROSE ENGLISHI’ve read Rose English‘s ‘One Breath’ – a delightful story – one of those which you want to read twice straight off because you don’t want to let it go. She featured on my book review of the month and this is what I wrote:

I have yet to read Dawn Singh’s ‘The Monster Inside’ but it is on my wish list. What a title though!

Here’s a snippet of Rose’s review of ‘Murder Now and Then’ which you can read fully if you click review:

“As I said previously a real page turner, a book I feel would appeal to many ages’ especially younger readers wanting to perhaps try a mystery for the first time.

Very highly recommended”
