Rosie Goodwin is the author of over thirty bestselling novels and a Sunday Times bestseller. She is the first author in the world to be allowed to follow three of Catherine Cookson's trilogies with her own sequels. Hello, thank you for visiting my author page. I have always loved to write and my children were weaned on stories I wrote for them. I was a foster carer for many years and during that time I cared for dozens of children and young people. I was also a placement support worker for our department, so with two jobs, seven children, numerous animals and a home to run it was a busy time. It was my husband who first suggested I should attempt writing a novel and I actually wrote my first two and a half books long hand sitting in our touring caravan in the back garden. Eventually I was lucky enough to secure an agent and it all went from there and my first book was published in 2004. Catherine Cookson was my inspiration so it seemed natural for me to write sagas too. I think they are the only genre where you can toss anything into the pot. Murder and romance can all live together to make for a pacy story, which is probably why I still love what I'm doing. I don't have a set format; I try to make each book individual and sometimes even I don't know where they're going when I begin a new one. I love it when the main character comes to life for me and then I tend to let them take over and let the story go where it will. I have written books on a number of different themes; the more contemporary ones that tend to delve into more topical subjects, a ghost story as well as books that centre around World Wars 1 and 2. Recently I have completed a historical days of the week series. In my spare time I love gardening, spending time at our holiday home at the coast with my husband and dogs, all six of them, I'm afraid I'm a lost cause for waifs and strays, and spending time with my lovely grandchildren. Hopefully there will be something to appeal to each of you amongst my titles, there are over thirty of them available now and I do hope that if you read them you will enjoy reading them as much as I loved writing them. Very best wishes Rosie GoodwinRead more Read less
