Rowena House

Born in central London, Rowena House grew up near Richmond Park, which she still loves. After studying international relations at the London School of Economics and journalism at the City University, she worked for Fleet Street news agencies until Reuters sent her abroad as a foreign correspondent, first to France, then across Africa, and finally to the European Union’s headquarters in Brussels. On a gap year, she travelled again in east and southern Africa, and also in Latin and central America. Returning to England, she met and married a scallop driver, settling with him in rural Devon. Rowena began writing fiction in 2007 while raising their son. Her prize-winning WW1 short story, The Marshalling of Angélique’s Geese, was published by Andersen Press in War Girls (2014). She took another 15 months to research and write the novelization of that story as The Goose Road. Her hobbies include wildlife gardening, travel and walking her Austrian sheep dog on the local cliff paths.
