Hertfordshire author and housewife Rowan Coleman will be appearing at Bishop's Stortford Library on Tuesday, May 14.

She will be talking about her latest book, The Summer of Impossible Things.

Rowan lives with her husband, and five children in a very full house in the county. She juggles writing novels with raising her family which includes a very lively set of toddler twins whose main hobby is “going in the opposite directions”.

When she gets the chance, Rowan enjoys sleeping, sitting and loves watching films; she is also attempting to learn how to bake.

Rowan would like to live every day as if she were starring in a musical, although her daughter no longer allows her to sing in public.

Despite being dyslexic, she loves writing, and The Memory Book - her 11th novel - was chosen as a Richard and Judy bookclub selection in 2014.

Others include The Accidental Mother, Lessons in Laughing Out Loud and the award-winning Dearest Rose, a novel which lead Rowan to become an active supporter of domestic abuse charity Refuge, donating 100% of royalties from the ebook publication of her novella, Woman Walks Into a Bar, to the charity.

In The Summer of Impossible Things, her main character Luna has the chance to stop something terrible that happened to her mother 30 years ago in what is described as a novel of time travel, courage, sacrifice, love…and disco.

Tickets are available at Bishop’s Stortford Library in the Causeway or by phoning 01707 281533.
