About the author

Rosemary Blake

<p>I am a professional counsellor and trainer, working in the charitable sector.&#160; After I sustained an injury I kept myself sane by doing&#160;an online course with the Open University.&#160; From then on, I was hooked on writing.</p>&#13; &#13; <p>'The Boatman's Daughter', set in the early 1970s, was written to show how different attitudes were then, especially for women.&#160; Imogen is a strong character and has to make the right choices.</p>&#13; &#13; <p>'Live a Little' takes a character from the first book: a strait-laced housewife, who decides to change her life by joining a commune in France.&#160; She learns to assert herself and to reconsider her attitude to alternative&#160;lifestyles.</p>&#13; &#13; <p>Watch out for 'Diana's Story' which joins a little girl from 'Live a Little' as she grows up and investigates her family.&#160; She has to make choices about family loyalty.</p>
