Rosita Bird

Biography

I married with two children and grandchildren. After working at a Solicitors 7 years and becoming a mother I also became a childminder for 15 years and also worked as a parent guardian for a private boarding school. After that I also worked in a nursery school and became an accommodation provider for fostered teenagers. I have had lots of experience with children and some health issues over a number of years. I combined both these experiences into writing books to educate young children into healthy eating. I have covered topics such as mental health with Mummy Still Loves Me and autism too with Jake is Different. All my books are published with Crimson Cloak Publishers USA. I am also writing an A - Z animal series.
