Hello, I’m Rosy &
I appear to be a novelist…
…and now also a short story writer. I write about families & relationships, mothers & daughters, and matters of the heart. I also like to add a dash of humour – even of satire – and have a preoccupation with nature and landscape. It all makes a change from academic law, and all those footnotes!
It was great to see ‘Sandlands’ listed among the favourite reads of 2017 by the blog ‘Bloomin’ Brilliant Books’, as the book which “totally transported me to another place”. The blogger says: “Rosy’s stunning prose is haunting and evocative and you become completely immersed in the surroundings in each beautiful tale”.
“Thornton is skilled at drawing out the poignancy of ordinary life.”
