Rose, Heather

Tagged: Author

(1964-    ) Australian author whose Tuesday McGillycuddy sequence with Danielle Wood under the joint pseudonym Angelica Banks, and beginning with Finding Serendipity (2013), is fantasy for younger readers. Rose is of sf interest for the Near Future Bruny (2019), set just after an American president has engineered a second term and Brexit is in force; in Tasmania, a Chinese-financed and -engineered project to construct a bridge between Bruny Island, which is south of Hobart, and the main island, is at stake. Politics and family romance intertwine and clash; there are elements of local Satire; the novel is prescient in its depiction of decaying relations between Australia and China. [JC]
