Rosie Reay is a well-travelled author as you may have guessed already. She has lived in Africa, England and Spain, apart from her travels in North America. Her first book was inspired by a road trip a few years ago from California, USA to British Columbia, Canada and it has in fact triggered the whole Chimona Chronicles series.
A unique aspect of this series of books by Rosie is that each is accompanied by full character sketches and an online glossary - helping children and their parents better understand the terminology and the characters.
In addition, each story manages to weave in a poem - this has become a unique trademark of her books. These kids poems may be separately published later.
Rosie currently lives in the olive and mandarin countryside between
Barcelona and Valencia, Spain above the lovely Ebro River valley.
Surrounded by her own crowd of of ever increasing number of pets
and a 245 degree panaromic view of the mountains. Plus only 30
minutes to the beach. Not bad!
addition, Rosie helps Spanish students perfect their English and
writes blogs (www.EbroVoice.com),
and articles for the English community in that part of the country.

Chimona Chronicles ("I am a Canadian" shortly. Meanwhile,
