About Rosie Clarke
The British writer Rosie Clarke is a prolific author of numerous novels, having written extensively over the years. This has has seen her produce a large quantity of titles, mostly sagas, which has found her an equally large audience worldwide. Creating interesting and compelling stories, her style is warm and down-to-earth, providing good-natured narratives with engaging characters. Producing work under a variety of different pseudonyms too, she has created over a hundred novels and counting through the years.

Many of her books are historical as well, and she pays close attention to detail when it comes to authenticity and realism. Allowing the reader to feel as if they’re actually there, Clarke manages to capture a real sense of both the time and the era. Her worlds are rich and immersive with an enduring quality to them, staying with the reader long after they’ve put the book down. This is part of what sets her apart as an author, seeing her become someone quite unique in her field, with her own voice.

Many of her characters are recurring too, with plenty of them returning time and time again, establishing a sense of familiarity with the reader. This has also paved the way for several series during the course of her writing career too, allowing her to really build upon the franchises and characters she creates. Getting to know her readers, her audience also feel like they come to understand her, as she has become a household name for many. With more to come in the near future, it definitely doesn’t appear that she’s stopping any time soon either, as more is planned upon the horizon.

Early and Personal Life
Born in Swindon, her family would later move to Cambridgeshire at the age of nine, whereby Rosie Clarke would grow up with a passion for literature. Following this when she was fifteen, she would go on to work as a hairdresser in her father’s business, something which she’d do for a number of years. At eighteen years of age she would go on to get married, and would then run her own hairdressing business for many years.

All the while she would develop her voice as a writer, finding her own approach to the novel, taking it in a different direction. Focusing her craft, she would soon come to be published under many different pen-names, as well as many different publishers. There’s plenty more books set for the future too, as her writing career, already as prolific as she is, is all set to continue.

Writing Career
The first novel that Rosie Clarke would write under her own name was titled ‘The Downstairs Maid,’ although she would also write countless others under various different pseudonyms. She would soon come to develop a number of long-running series and franchises, featuring many epic sagas and arcs. The first of these was the ‘Emma’ series which begun in 2015 with the novel of the same name, and followed on with ‘Emma’s War’ and ‘Emma’s Duty’ that same year.
There would be other series to follow, including ‘Workshop Girls,’ ‘Mulberry Lane,’ ‘Women at War,’ and ‘Welcome to Harpers Emporium.’ Largely looking at love and romance, she writes on subjects that she finds inspiring, including the beauty of nature. Gaining a lot of acclaim from both the critics and the general public alike over the years, her writing career is one that grows from strength-to-strength.

Emma’s Duty
This would also be written under the pen-name of Linda Sole, as it would make up the third and final part of the Emma trilogy. Originally coming out on the 24th of September in 2015, it would follow on from ‘Emma’s War,’ which was released just a few months before. Brought out through Ebury Digital initially, it managed to finalise everything about the series, bringing it to a satisfying conclusion.

A sensitively written novel, this was a touching story with a lot of heart to it, grabbing the reader from the very beginning. The characters all appear to stand-out, giving the reader a strong lasting impression, staying with them long after they’ve put the book down. With the period of the time itself, it really manages to come to life, brought into full color with all the vivid detail of the era.

Suffering from a range of injuries following his return from war, Emma feels a sense of loyalty to her husband, although the romance has gone. Then, when tragedy strikes, she finds that she can’t turn to her former lover and friend Jack Harvey, as he’s now married himself. This is despite their feelings for one another, as they must overcome the hardships and tragedy that lies before them. Will they manage to ever be together? Can they overcome this obstacle in their path? What will become of Emma’s duty?

A Reunion at Mulberry Lane
First released through the Boldwood Books publishing label, this would initially come out in 2020 on the 27th of August. Marking the sixth title in the ongoing ‘Mulberry Lane’ series of novels, it was a well received title, following on from the previous books with another instalment. With it’s own story, it does provide something for both fans and newcomers alike, although they’re really best read in order. As historical fiction it also works as a window into the past, with close attention to detail paid to the period once more, giving an authentic representation of the time.

Taking place in 1949, this features Peggy, as she attempts to deal with a crossroads in her life, and a Mulberry family reunion could help rectify that. Fearing her husband could be having an affair, the eldest daughter Janet is extremely unhappy, while Fay is the youngest daughter, and she has been talent spotted for figure skating in London. Dealing with the dilemma of having to potentially move her family back to London, Peggy is looking at how her family may react. Will she go through with it all? Can she help them find peace of mind? What will become of the reunion at Mulberry Lane?
