The Rose Smuggler
A fairy-tale infused historical novel for adults set in the late 18 th century, moving
between Imperial China and France during the ‘Terror’ of the French Revolution, and
inspired by the true story of a quest for a blood-red rose.
The novel will draw upon ‘The Blue Rose,’ a fairy tale set in China about a quest for
an impossible rose.
Season's greetings from Sydney, Australia!
It is midsummer here in Sydney and my garden is bursting with beauty.
All my roses in bloom and baby tomatoes are ripening on the vine.
It’s been a busy but happy few months for me.
I appeared on ‘Conversations with Richard Fidler’ and had hundreds of emails and messages as a result – if you missed the interview, you can download it from the ABC website.
I am also very happy to announce that my history of Rapunzel, which I wrote as my doctoral thesis, is to be published next year by FableCroft.
Finally, I though I’d give my wonderful VIP members a chance to win a signed copy of my novel THE STARKIN CROWN, which is set during the Yuletide in a magical faraway land … all details on my blog.
The giveaway will run for twelve days (from 24th December 2015 to 4th January 2016) and there are three books to be won.
Once again, thank you for all your support over the year – I could not do it without you!
I hope that you all have a happy and peaceful festive season, wherever you may be and whatever you may believe.
