The author of the books in the English Village Witch Cozy series
Wendy: Can you tell us what your books are about?
Rosie: The English Village Witch Cozy series is a paranormal cozy mystery series, starring Evelyn Eldritch – a novice witch who is also training to be a therapist. She first arrives in the quaint village of Maiden-Upon-Avon in Book One, Murder at Magic Cakes Café, where she meets werewolves, witches, vampires – and a dishy detective with to-die-for dimples.
Evelyn is a typical English woman (and totally based on me!). She loves drinking tea, helping friends, and not drawing too much attention to herself – which is hard considering how clumsy she can be! But she’s kind-hearted, has a great sense of fun, and a knack for figuring out people – and murderers!
Wendy: Tell us a little about your background (your journey: where you grew up, your family of origin, your current family, your education and work experience.
Rosie: I’m from the Southeast of England, near London and Windsor, but I’ve lived in Bath – and travelled in India. I love writing, daydreaming, and creating stories. I’m a massive Agatha Christie and Terry Pratchett fan, so writing paranormal mystery comes instinctively!
Wendy: When did you start thinking about becoming an author? Was there an event or “awesome” moment that precipitated your desire for a change or had this been brewing for a while?
Rosie: I’ve daydreamed stories for as long as I can remember. But I’ve been writing for decades and I’ve actually published romance under various pennames. Alas, I suffered creative burnout and took some time out to recover. But I’m okay now and I’m thoroughly enjoying my creativity again. When I started writing paranormal cozies, I felt like I’d found the genre I was born to write!
Wendy: How hard was it to make the decision to write your book/s? How did you get started?
Rosie: Starting the English Village Witch Cozy series was actually my sanity-saving project during the very strange year of 2020, and it’s my pleasure to share this comfort with others. I love the understated charm of cozies, and my imagination really thrives on the magical elements. The romance writer side of me can’t resist adding a bit of love, but of course, the mystery is always the most important aspect. Finding new twists and red herrings is such fun!
Wendy: What challenges did you or are you encountering?
Rosie: I need to make sure I don’t overwork myself and suffer burnout again. My aim is to enjoy writing my books and to share that joy with others. As with everything in life, it’s a balance between doing and being.
Wendy: What did you learn about yourself through this process?
Rosie: I have to enjoy the writing! I’m a very creative person, and that’s my priority. I do have a lot of fun with these books, and if others enjoy them too (which plenty do, which is lovely!) then that’s an extra added bonus. I love connecting with people, and I realise that my books are one way of doing this. So they need to be authentically me.
Wendy: What’s next for you? Do you think you have another book in your future?
Rosie: I’m currently writing Book Eight in the English Village Witch Cozy series, which is called Summertime Clues. And also I’m working on a fun spinoff series, featuring Evelyn’s man-mad granny, Joanie. The spinoff series is called A Witch in Time Solves Nine, and it’s a nine-novella time travel paranormal cozy series.
