Bernadette Rowley is an author of fantasy romance who grew up on rural properties on the
Sunshine Coast. Her teenage years were spent training her beloved horses, reading the
fantasy stories of Tolkien, Brooks and Eddings and dreaming of becoming a vet. She
graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science First Class Honours in 1987 and bought her
own practice at Bli Bli 2 ½ years later.
After the sale of the practice, Bernadette, her husband and their three small boys spent an
idyllic nine years on a topical fruit farm at Yandina. She rediscovered her need to write 17
years ago after a goal setting workshop, moving through picture books, junior fiction and
finally to science fiction and fantasy romance.
Bernadette works part time as a vet, allowing her five days a week for her passion, writing.
She now lives in Townsville with her husband of 27 years, their youngest son and Slippers
the cat. Her other interests are reading (fantasy and romance), singing (a capella), cricket
and music.BROWSE BOOKS BY THE AUTHOR >
