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!
