Rosemary O'Donoghue writes for work and for fun. A Technical Writer with a science background, she has published travel books and a business book, Clarity out of Complexity: Writing Effective Workplace Procedures, to share some of the wisdom she has learned from many years of writing for a wide range of industries. She gets excited about how good procedures (as opposed to longwinded, boring, repetitive procedures) can dramatically lift the performance of a business.
In between (and often during) jobs, Rosemary enjoys travelling and writes daily to capture her experiences and entertain friends, family and random people she meets. As well as Rosemary's Travels: Italy, she has published Rosemary's Travels: Greece and will soon publish stories about her travels in Malta, Hong Kong & China, New Zealand, and a whirlwind bus trip across Europe.
Rosemary also dabbles in fiction and is currently working on a thriller based in Sydney, where a daring girl hooks up with the member of a bikie gang.
Travel Malta and find the beauty, the history and the ridiculous.
Thirty years ago Rosemary worked with a young Maltese fellow who managed to communicate his love of his country and it has been on her bucket list ever since. When she visits, she is not disappointed, finding herself enthralled with the beauty and the history and annoyed and amused by some tacky tourism.
Italy is the second destination in Rosemary's Travels: 2016. Experience the sights and food in Naples, stroll through Pompeii and climb Mount Vesuvius in wind and rain. Visit the picturesque towns of the Amalfi Coast and wander through the streets of Rome, while you're amused by the quaint ways of Stavros, her coeliac travelling companion.
Experience armchair travel at its best. Travel with Rosemary and her coeliac travel companion Stavros to Athens, ancient sites in Greece and picturesque destinations in the Greek islands. View the landscape, feel the history, make new friends and savour the food.
Clarity out of Complexity shows how to create procedures or Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that people will actually use. It guides you through providing useful information, writing in straightforward language, and presenting in a structured layout that is easy to read.
