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 in 1987 and bought her own practice at Bli Bli 2 ½ years later.
Bernadette now 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 25 years, their boys (now all teenagers) and Slippers the cat. Her other interests are reading (fantasy and romance), singing (a capella), cricket and music.
