Hi, I’m Rhoda
I write contemporary rom coms and women’s fiction with a hint of geek.
Back in the early 2000s, when I commuted into London every day, I read romance novels and wished there were more books about women who were not obsessed with shoes. Besides which, where were all the nice men? The sort that rely on wit and charm rather than money and biceps.
I now write the sort of books I wanted to read … and am lucky enough to find publishers who want to publish them!
In real life, I have a DPhil in microbiolgy and work with intellectual property. In fact, my pen name is based on the bacteria I did my DPhil work on, Rhodobacter sphaeroides.
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 also write multi-cultural women’s fiction as Jeevani Charika.
My books have been nominated for prizes and my articles have appeared on various websites, including USA Today.
My latest book That Holiday in France is out now.
