About me

Rosy Cole started her ‘writing career’ in her teens. Four apprentice works led to publication of two novels. Life intervened, but she returned to authorship in 2004. She has worked as a Press Officer and Publisher’s Reader. She writes in other genres, including poetry, but a fascination with the 18th and 19th century has always been to the fore. The Berkeley Series differs from earlier work in that it falls into a hybrid class combining novel with biography. Its theme is a ’cause celebre’ involving the Prince of Wales. Social and political intrigue were to bring the main protagonist, a butcher’s daughter, to fear for her life and flee the country after a House of Lords trial and in the thick of the Napoleonic Wars. Whilst not romance, there’s a strong love theme with some surprises. Read more about the process:
