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.
When Grandpa wakes, he's cross and cranky. He honks like an elephant into his hanky ...
A delightful story about visiting Grandpa and discovering that people are not quite what they seem.
Background to the Story:
I wrote ‘Grumpy Grandpa’ for my daughter Ella and her not-so-grumpy grandpas one afternoon while I was waiting for her to finish her ballet lesson. My daughter has always loved to dance and sing and play dress-ups … but she can be a little shy sometimes, and she definitely does not like being yelled at!
