Rose Appleby is trying to be a writer. She writes children’s stories, and sometimes plays around with short stories for grown-ups. And silly poems. Oh, and there’s a big book for grown-ups that she’s been writing off and on for quite a while. Every now and then she draws little pictures too.

She also appreciates the importance of cake, and tries to involve it at every opportunity.

Rose Appleby is my pen-name, made up of one of my middle names and my late mum’s maiden name. In the real world, I’m Michelle, and when I’m not writing I work on a big yellow train, travelling up and down the country testing the railway tracks to make sure they’re all fine and dandy. Love my job, and love writing!

Rose, I found you via a friend of mine. I love your blog. You give me hope and inspiration too. I am a writer too, of children’s books and poems. I illustrate too, but it is a slow process. I am writing a book for older children, I calculated mathematically how long it would take, and I am way off my estimates, so maybe I should have a piece of cake πŸ˜‰

I’d love to put a link to your site on my website that I am building up at the moment.

Keep writing, drawing and having a sense of humour, the world and children need this.

Today I began following you on twitter as we have palindromic rheumatica in common. It has been very interesting reading you account of how the condition affects you.
Namaste Julie
