About the authorRosanne Hodin had an orderly childhood, a misspent youth and an overloaded adulthood. She has been an office slave, a glassblower, a welder, mature student, teacher, volunteer in Africa, mother, farmer and ambivalent sailor. She and her husband knew nothing of farming when they moved to Cornwall but learnt through a million mistakes and unwarranted optimism. Rosanne has won Daily and Sunday Telegraph prizes for travel writing and has published several articles in sailing magazines.
