Rosemary Wisewould (Gamble) was raised in Collie, a coal mining town in the South West of Western Australia. In High School she studied English Literature and enjoyed analysing word structure. She often got lost in daydreams. After marrying, she relocated to Fitzgerald, a wheat and sheep farming community on Western Australia’s south coast where the scope for character building, storylines and daydreaming is unlimited. With encouragement and inspiration from a number of wonderful writing groups, she began putting words together seriously and now writes with a passion. Rosemary writes for her own pleasure and to entertain other people. She hopes you enjoy this story.
