Rosie Wallace's two novels draw on many years' observations of the British political system at work. Fortunately for readers of her two novels - A Small Town Affair and The Trouble with Keeping Mum - she's chosen to write stories about the way politics impacts on the lives of those left at home, the partners and families of politicians on whom the major burden of keeping the home fires burning falls. And as she was married to the MP for Orkney and Shetland, she knows better than most.
But Rosie's writing isn't about settling scores. Her two novels - branded 'Borgen in Scotland with laughs' by one reader - are entertaining, often touching and genuine. Here she talks about how she came to write - and what we might expect next from her.
