Welcome

This is the website of Rosalind Minett.  My logo is a pastiche of Picasso translated into Girl with Computer (rather than mirror). Its two faces suggest the outer and the inner person, or looking out and looking in.

My sub-title, The Characterful Writer, describes the fiction I most enjoy: character-led, irrespective of genre.

On My Books page, you will see there are different genres, but all my books have certain characteristics: a touch of humour, irony or satire, a sweep of characters, plenty of dialogue, twists and turns and usually a dark edge.

The blog centres on the work of writing but I love cross-fertilisation. A visit, a sighting, a meeting, a conversation,  a performance, an art gallery, an event: all these can gift a writer new ideas. Sometimes the most unlikely incident provides the one image or concept needed for the current work. Non-writing art forms might even stimulate a new approach to writing.
