Life continues to be eventful here in Italy providing me with lots of material for ‘A Rosie Life In Italy 5’ – which I now hope to get finished by the summer! Talking of summer, after the success of last year, I am running another Writer’s Retreat at La Dogana from 12-18 June 2023. We do a couple of hours writing per day and then I take you to explore some of my favourite towns. We also have a picnic in the Tuscan hills, wine tasting, a cooking class and lots more. Last year was lots of fun with friends made for life and lots of inspiration had for future writing projects. You don’t have to be a published author to attend, just bring a writing project you would like to work on, a sense of adventure and a sense of humour! So if you would like to hang out with me and Lucia for a week, here’s the link: Rosie’s Writers Retreat in Italy

About Rosie’s Hero-scopes Book Series:
Twenty-five years have passed since the astrology loving Cosmo Club was formed. Now as the seven women enter their forties, with a litany of messy relationships and failed careers following them like a stream of toilet paper stuck on a shoe, the death of Linda brings the remaining six friends together again.
A weekend in their old seaside clubhouse resurfaces memories and a promise they once made. Linda’s last wish makes that promise unbreakable; they must let their life choices be fully dictated by their horoscopes in Cosmo magazine and find love within six months … If they don’t stick to Linda’s plan, they risk losing something they all need; a lot of money.
Follow what happens in this seasoned and spiced romantic comedy series to; Aquarius Laura and her Leo Lion, Cancerian Bell and her search for her Taurus Bull, Scorpio Fanny and her Piscean Fish, Gemini Wendy and her Libra Wolf and Sagittarian Ruby and her Aries Ram.

Having three generations of her family living under the same roof was once part of the Italian dream for Rosie. But when her party-loving, whiskey-drinking, poker-playing 85-year-old mother moves over from Ireland to Italy, Rosie’s longed for dolce vita in Umbria is anything but sweet.
With a preference for bland boiled potatoes to her daughter’s Italian cooking and an aversion towards housework, Rosie’s mother’s requirements to feel at home in the Sighing House–including a smelly deep fat-frier, lots of clutter, parties and a new pup–are very different to Rosie’s vision.
However, the most urgent thing on Rosie’s to-do list is not dealing with the needs of her artist mother, nor the ongoing renovation ‘what now?’ moments—such as electric wires in the chimney. Rosie has the more pressing issue of a backlog of twenty summer weddings to be planned now that Covid restrictions are lifted. But with vendors going bust, and demands of couples going extreme, Rosie needs to find a way to get through the hottest Italian summer on record without burning out or having a gelato-mountain sized melt down.
Includes 10 delicious and simple recipes including Strangled Priest and White Walnut Pasta.
“I love the Rosie series!… entertaining and funny!” – Jenny Marrs, Host of HGTV’s Fixer to Fabulous
‘Under The Tuscan Sun’ meets ‘Escape To The Chateau’ with a dash of ‘Eat Pray Love’ in this hilarious Italian villa renovation memoir.
