Rose Edwards writes young adult and literary fiction and has been writing since she was nine. She studied Literature and Philosophy at the University of York before completing a Masters in Chinese studies at SOAS. After working as an English teacher, she learned how important a good book can be.
She left teaching to study Creative Writing at the University of Oxford, graduating with Distinction. She is inspired by lives that go against the grain and encapsulate periods of change, and she is dedicated to representing girl heroes whose lives, backgrounds and motivations are complex and varied.
