Who is Fallacious Rose?

I'll let you in on a secret...


It’s a pen name. You guessed that? Oh well.

I live in country Australia with one very old grey cat (called Grey – what an imagination!) and a very bearded husband. I don’t pay any electricity bills – being on solar – but when the sun don’t shine, I don’t take showers. Because there’s no hot water.

I’ve been writing all my life, but like lots of people, the need to earn a living got in the way. Isn’t work great! But seriously, it is – if it wasn’t for all the people I’ve met, cleaning houses, writing policy papers, attending conferences, cleaning up dog shit – I wouldn’t be the fund of useless information about life I am today.

The one thing that’s always struck me about writing is – if you don’t have anything to say, don’t bother saying it. I don’t follow this rule at all when it comes to talking over the news at home – but I try to follow it when I’m writing a book, for readers, to read.

That said, most people describe my work as quirky, and some as ‘downright weird’. I don’t mind – after all, life is strange, isn’t it?

I really do appreciate hearing from my readers, so drop me a line and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can –  you can reach me at fallaciousrose@fallaciousrose.com.
