Rosie Oliver has been in love with science fiction ever since, as a teenager, she discovered a whole bookcase of yellow-covered Gollancz science fiction books in Chesterfield library in central England. It sent her on a world-spinning imaginary journey from the depths of Earth’s oceans to multi-verses with varying time speeds, and beyond!
After obtaining a degree in mathematics at Oxford University and having a down to Earth career as an aeronautical engineer turned systems engineer, she can now devote her time to gardening, needlework, being a National Federation of Women’s Institutes handicraft judge and writing science fiction.
She has had around forty of her short stories published (one ended up in the Best of British Science Fiction 2020 anthology) and been a Finalist in the Writers of the Future Contest. Her other varied science fictional activities included obtaining an MA in creative writing from Bath Spa University, being a co-editor of the Distaff anthology and blundering her way into being a minor contributor to a research paper on the northern lights. Recently, she has had her debut novel, Edge of Existence, C.A.T. – the novel, published by TWB Press. Yes, she loves cats, meat or robot AI, but especially the rascally ginger ones. Mrrooowwww!
Rosie’s science fiction novel, A Truth Beyond Full, is set in a mining colony on Miranda, one of the moons of Uranus. It will be published by Elsewhen Press in 2024.
