Rosa Christian came to the writing of poetry rather late in life, after her children struck out on their own journeys. She has regularly won or placed in poetry competitions since that time. She has self-published, “My Fish Loves Me”, a collection of her early works and “Australia…my heart”, inspired by a recent solo, driving holiday around Australia. She has recently finished studying for her Master of Arts (Writing) at James Cook University, Townsville. She continues to write - poetry, short stories and currently a novel.
