Hi. I’m Rhoda. I write contemporary women’s fiction with a hint of geek. In real life, I’m a former scientist who now works with intellectual property.
Back in the early 2000s, when I commuted into London every day, I read a lot and wished there were more novels about women like me – who were bright, career minded and really couldn’t be bothered with designer brands. Besides which, where were all the nice men? The sort that make you laugh and are all about wit and charm rather than money and biceps.
I now write the sort of books I wanted to read. I’m lucky enough to have a publisher who takes them (thank you Choc Lit!).
My books have been nominated for prizes and my articles have appeared on various websites, including USA Today.
My latest book Girl Having a Ball is out now.
You can usually find me wittering on about fiction, science or cake (sometimes all three at the same time) here on my blog, on Facebook or Twitter (@rhodabaxter).
I am a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, RWA and a member of the Author’s North Committee at the Society of Authors. I’m also a member of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, but that’s probably not terribly relevant here.
