Percy Rose came to writing rather late in life and after a lot of encouragement from Lindsay Simpson graduated from James Cook University in 2013 with a Master of Arts (Writing). He travelled the world extensively, though there are many more places he still wants to visit. English (Australian) is his mother tongue, however at one point he could speak 5 languages (Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Romanian, French, Spanish ) to a basic conversational level (plus a few words of  Flipino) but now can just falter through French and Spanish.

Parent to four (4) wonderful children who continue to delight and surprise her with their creativeness and goodness. Grand parent to 5.

He does not see age as a deterrent to ambition or achievement but rather a spur, inspiration and deep well to draw from.
