About The Author, T.A. Rosewood
Want to know more about the author T.A. Rosewood?
Traci writes under the pen name, T.A. Rosewood.
She wrote her first short story when she was just thirteen years old, which was called, Looks Aren’t Everything and always loved creating short stories.
For her GCSE English exam, she had to write a two-page short story, but, once she’d started writing, she ended up with a thirty-page document and was graded down for that English exam. That story was called ‘The Runaway’, a young adult story.
During her twenties, Traci began writing poetry and has been published in five different poetry collection books. Unfortunately, she had to stop writing as her working life and family grew.
Almost two decades later, in 2016, Jojo Moyes was the inspiration for her to write again, when she met the bestselling author Jojo, at the open evening of Harts Books in Saffron Walden, Essex.

Traci and her husband went along to show their support for the new book shop in town and listened intently as Jojo Moyes described how it felt when her bestselling book ‘Me Before You’ was turned into a Hollywood Film.
At that moment, Traci turned to her husband and said: “I’m going to start writing again.”
That evening, she couldn’t sleep for excitement and come up with a fictional storyline for Reasonable Lies, which would highlight a sensitive women’s health issue.
Sadly, one month into writing her novel, Traci’s mum, was diagnosed with the same disease as the lead character in Reasonable Lies, which put an immediate stop to her writing, as it was just too painful to continue.
Thankfully, after two operations and eighteen months of treatment, her mum was given the all-clear, and she then encouraged Traci to continue with writing her book using her as research and inspiration.
In October of 2016, Traci and her Husband, Leonardo, attended the Harts Books ‘Meet the Author’ Event, to hear Jojo Moyes talk about her latest book, The Giver of Stars.
During the ‘Ask the Author’ anything section, Leonardo raised his hand to thank both Jojo Moyes and Harts Books and further explained how Traci had been inspired to write her debut novel from Jojo’s first visit to the store.
Jojo congratulated her and started to applaud, which then lead to a round of applause from the rest of the audience.
This impactful evening kick-started lots of follows on social media, requests from local book clubs wanting to read Traci’s book, and subsequently, lots of pre-orders for her first book, Reasonable Lies which was published in March 2020.
Now, with four novels, and two novellas under her belt, Traci, aka, T.A. Rosewood has earned the nickname ‘The Queen of Tears‘.
Traci lives in North Essex with her husband Leonardo, their two children, Billy and Anni, and westie scruff, Robbie.
