About Rosemary J. Peel

Hi, my name is Rosemary. My nationality is English although my parentage stems from celtic roots. My main passion is writing but I also paint, mostly in oils. I am first and foremost a wife, mother and grandmother; previously a practical, down to earth business woman - now retired. Born dyslexic into an academically oriented family in the days before the disability was recognised, early years were not easy. But having to prove myself to myself, has stood me in good stead and toughened my character. I knew I could write - even if I couldn't spell. My fear of reading in public led to the development of a keen memory. My inborn love of the written word helped me to overcome my disability and to eventually become a mainstream published author. I am now trying my hand at e-publishing. My writings include adult fiction, astrological books, poetry and children’s stories. Although not as young as I used to be, I hope I still remain ‘young at heart', always able to truthfully hold my hand up to a firm belief in the magic of childhood - not the J. K. Rowling kind (although I adore the books and films), but rather the wonderment of the Santa, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy years. I love children and equate to them, some might say because deep down I have never entirely grown up. To tell the truth, I hope I never really do.

*** The story Long Ago and Far Away has been changed because readers found the Yorkshire dialect difficult to understand. The new version still uses incorrect grammar in order to simulate the dialect without it being unreadable to those not conversant with its peculiarities. ***

Besides the Facebook URL above I have another page under the name of Percy Prickles and Friends. This is where I showcase my e-books and update my readers with news and information.

Review by: Al Molaison on Feb. 08, 2014 :
Frequently, the kids and I become irritated when we have to nearly stop on our road. Our trip interfered with by bird watchers. So when I showed them The Blackbird that Couldn't Sing I got some frowns. I decided that we'd read it together. I had some explaining to do--what's a magpie, a blackbird, a nightingale? We hit Safari, checked out some sites, questions answered.
The friendship, the family relationships, the desire to help, and success are traits that, as an adult, I want my grandkids exposed to. This book does a first-rate job of this kind of exposure---and it doesn't preach. The kids declared the story, "cool." Oh, they loved the cover.
