Rose Allan

For the past 33 years I have lived on Queensland's Sunshine Coast where I run my Writing from the Heart Consultancy. My two books of imaginative non-fiction - Out of this Whirlwind, and Spirit of Noosa - use both word and photographic image. Short stories are published in journals and in the anthologies: Award Winning Australian Writing 2013 (Melbourne Books), and Lost Boy and Other Stories 2015 (Margaret River Press). After attending a juicy Varuna Focus week with Tegan Bennett Daylight in 2016 I am working on a collection of my short fiction. A recently completed novel addresses a theme of mercy killing.
