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 and is a member of the Society of Authors, the Alliance of Independent Authors, the Poetry Society and Green Room (gr8word.com). She writes in other genres, but an interest in history (particularly the 18th and 19th centuries) 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. It tells the tale of a famous ’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 . It is not a romance, but there is a strong love theme with some surprises.
