Rosemary Morris is an interesting historical novelist. Please read her author introduction to see all the wonderful places she's lived, her published work, what we can expect from her for the future, and much more!
Tell us briefly about yourself.
I was born in 1940 in Sidcup, Kent, England. As a child, when I was not making up stories, my head was ‘always in a book.’
While working in a travel agency, I met my Indian husband. He encouraged me to continue my education at Westminster College. In 1961 I and my husband, now a barrister, moved to his birthplace, Kenya, where I lived from 1981 to 1985. After an attempted coup d’etat, I lived in an ashram in France with four of my five children.
Back in England I wrote historical fiction. I am now a member of the Romantic Novelist’s Association, Historical Novelist’s Association, Historical Novel Society and Watford Writers.
Apart from writing, I enjoy classical Indian literature, reading, visiting places of historical interest, vegetarian cooking, growing organic fruit, herbs, and creative crafts.
Time spent with my five children, and their families, most of who live near me is precious.
