Thomas, Rosie

(British, 1947– )

Rosie Thomas (pseudonym of Janey King) was born in Denbigh, North Wales, and educated there and at St Hilda's College, Oxford. She worked as a journalist and in publishing before writing full time. She writes good quality romantic fiction such as the historical saga All My Sins Remembered (1991), with its three heroines who live through the two world wars. Her later novels are contemporary, such as Other People's Marriages (1994), about a widow affecting the marital relationships in a cathedral town and Every Woman Knows a Secret (1996), a darker novel about a family tragedy which propels the heroine into a love-affair with someone twenty years younger than herself. Moon Island (1998) tells the stories of some summer visitors to the coast of Maine.
