Rosy Thornton

Hello, I'm Rosy and I appear to be a novelist. Writing fiction makes a refreshing change from academic law (and all those footnotes).

I write contemporary fiction of a kind you might call romantic comedy with a hint of satire - or possibly social satire with a hint of romance. Or in fact just novels, really.

"Thornton is skilled at drawing out the poignancy of ordinary life." - The Guardian
