Rowan Scot-Ryder is a fantasy writer who enjoys developing the stories of her native land. She has worked all over Britain, from the north of Scotland down to the South-East, just outside London, as a journalist, nurse and teacher. She also worked for some years as a popular guest lecturer on board cruise ships, teaching painting.

     For many years her freelance writing centred around producing magazine articles and short stories, but this has now grown into full-length novels for an American based publisher.

     Rowan lives on the north-west coast of England with her husband, and writes fiction full-time, taking time out only to travel, swim, paint, take photographs and sometimes to teach creative writing.

     Rowan’s Facebook page (Rowan Scot-Ryder Author) reflects not only her interests but also includes links that will encourage fellow writers. Her personal blog is also found on Facebook (Rowan Scot-Ryder), and new friends are welcome on both.
