About Rosemary Westwell
I love writing. I write about anything and everything. Revelling in the arts, I visit as many local events as I can, enjoying the fruits of the labour of other people. Having taught secondary school music before, when I had to put on musical productions myself, I have an idea of how difficult it can be. I write glowing reports of the events I see – but – read between the lines – not everything is as glowing as it may seem.
I am married and we have 2 daughters. The eldest has a frightening position as 'assistant professor' and the other daughter is training for a second degree (in child care nursing). I am trying to finish a PhD in language acquisition. A right lost of clever clogs we may seem to be, but as a one–time Aussie (now firmly British) I like to think I have kept a down–to–earth approach than can sometimes disarm the unsuspecting. After all, a spade is a spade no matter what else you may call it – or is it? So, if you have time to spare and want to read my regular offering with an eye on what lies behind the glowing words – take a look at my flow of reviews and comments.
