Rosie Andersen is an author and artist with a keen interest in folklore. Weaving magical tales of mystery, myth and legend, her intriguing stories, written for all ages, are inspired by the countryside, history and wildlife of East Anglia. They are interwoven with nature and nurture at their heart and take the reader on a compelling journey as the stories unfold. All three fables have been stunningly illustrated by Norfolk artist Paul Jackson. Prior to life taking a more artistic direction, Rosie worked as a therapist and trainer in prisons, hospices, and with people of all ages in community projects. Rosie loves the countryside and sea in equal measure and supports wildlife protection with a passion. She lives and works in a quirky cottage in South Norfolk with a beguiling cat called Fionnghal.
