Rosamund Haden is one of South Africa’s most talented and prolific authors. Perhaps best known for her debut novel The Tin Church – which was published to international acclaim – Ros has spent the last decade producing short stories, children’s books, teen novels and scripts for television. Some of her more recent projects include: My Name is Honore – a collaboration with Honore Muneza, a Rwandan refugee – published by Pearson. Time Twisters – a tween novel written under the pseudonym Sam Roth (with Dorothy Dyer) – published by Penguin South Africa. Broken Promises and Sugar Daddy – two YA novels written for the popular Harmony High series – published by Cover2Cover Books.
Aside from her writing, Ros is co-founder and publisher at Cover2Cover Books and the content developer for the FunDza Literacy Trust. In 2013 FunDza was named as one of the top ten most innovative companies in education in the world and has attracted support both locally and from abroad for its commitment to improving literacy levels with programmes that get South African teens and young adults reading and writing.
Ros lives in Cape Town with her son, Mo.
