Heather Marcelle Dalmas Rose (born 10 August 1964) is an Australian author. Her novels are The Museum of Modern Love, The Butterfly Man, The River Wife, White Heart and for children Finding Serendipity, A Week Without Tuesday and Blueberry Pancakes Forever. Her diverse and award-winning career has spanned advertising, business, the arts and writing. [1][2][3]

Background[edit]

Heather Rose was born in Hobart, Tasmania. By the age of sixteen she had a weekly column in the Hobart Mercury. She won the Tasmanian Short Story Prize in 1981. She left school in 1982 and traveled widely through Asia and Europe.[4] Returning to Australia in 1984 she became an advertising copywriter in Melbourne.

In 1996 she returned to Tasmania. In 1999 Rose co-founded an advertising agency, Coo'ee Tasmania, a member of the international Coo'ee Network across Europe, Australasia and the United States with Rose as Managing Director.[5] Growth of Coo'ee and the success of its campaigns led to Rose being named Telstra Tasmanian Business Woman of the Year 2004.[6]

Rose became Chairman of the Coo'ee Network of agencies across Australasia from 2005 – 2007. In 2007 Coo'ee Tasmania left the Coo'ee Network and partnered with Green Team Global in New York.[7] Green Team Australia became Australia's first green advertising agency specialising in community engagement.[8] Green Team Australia has won over 25 international creative awards.

In 2008 Rose was appointed Chairman of the Festival of Voices,[9] a Hobart-based arts festival celebrating song, music and the voice. From 2008 – 2011 Rose, as Chairman, built the Festival into one of the state's leading annual Festivals.[10]

The Festival and Green Team Australia received both the Tasmanian and the national 2010 Australian Business Arts Foundation (ABAF) Award for SME's through a partnership created by Rose.[11]

In 2011 Rose was awarded the national ABAF Woodside Better Business Award for her extensive philanthropic contribution to Festival of Voices establishing it as a leading Australian Festival.[12]

Rose is a Mentor in the Tasmanian Leaders Program training business people in leadership excellence.[13]

Rose was a founding Board member of the Macquarie Point Development Corporation from 2012 – 2016.[14][15]

Rose won the Stella Prize [16] in 2017 for the best book (fiction or non-fiction) by an Australian woman for her novel The Museum of Modern Love.

Books[edit]

Heather Rose is the author of seven published novels for both adults and children.

Rose's fourth adult novel, The Museum of Modern Love, inspired by the work and life of performance artist Marina Abramović,[17] was published by Allen & Unwin in Australia in August 2016. [18] The novel won the 2017 Stella Prize,[19] the 2017 Christina Stead Prize for Fiction in the New South Wales Premier's Literary Awards and the 2017 Margaret Scott Prize and the People's Choice Award in the Tasmanian Premier's Literary Prizes.[20][21][22] It was shortlisted for the Australian Literary Society Gold Medal[23] and the Queensland Premier's Prizes.[24] It was also long listed for the 2018 International Dublin Literary Award. [25]

Rose's first adult novel White Heart was published in 1999 by Transworld. It tells the story of two children growing up in Tasmania. One of them becomes involved in the Native American ritual of sun dancing and the other becomes a Tasmanian tiger hunter. Murray Waldren in The Australian said: "Spirituality permeates Heather Rose's first novel, White Heart, as much as the past haunts it. This story is a complex of interwoven, sometimes chimeric themes...A-class debut."[26]

Rose's second novel, The Butterfly Man, was published by UQP in 2005,[27] It recounts the story of Lord Lucan the British Peer who disappeared from his family home in London after the murder of the family nanny in 1974. The Butterfly Man won the Davitt Award for Crime Fiction Novel of the Year in 2006,[28][29] was shortlisted for the Nita B Kibble Award.,[30] and longlisted for the Impac International Dublin Literary Award in 2007.[31]

The River Wife, Rose's third novel for adults, was published in 2009 by Allen & Unwin and described as "a beautiful, modern fable about the price we pay for love – a magical and original novel".[32] It has received significant acclaim from reviewers and readers where it has been hailed for the beauty of its storytelling.[33] An abridged version of The River Wife was broadcast on Radio National in 2010.[34]

Rose has said of her first three novels: "I am passionately Tasmanian and my family has lived here many generations. I think of this book (The River Wife) as the third in a trilogy of books that dives into the Tasmanian landscape. The first—White Heart—is a sweeping view of the island told through the lens of childhood. The second—The Butterfly Man—dives closer into the seasons and landscape of Mt Wellington, the mountain that is the backdrop to Hobart. And The River Wife dives even more deeply into the central highlands, the very heart of Tasmania, and finds there a story, a myth, a fable that is uniquely Tasmanian. Perhaps it is no surprise that is it also a love story.[35]

In 2013 Rose published her first children's novel Finding Serendipity co-authored with fellow award-winning writer Danielle Wood under the pen name Angelica Banks and published in Australia by Allen & Unwin.[36][37] It has also been published in Germany by Magellan[38] and in the United States with Henry Holt (MacMIllan).[39][40]

The second book in the Tuesday McGillycuddy series,A Week Without Tuesday, was published in Australian in 2015,[41] in Germany in 2015 and in the United States in 2016.[42] It was shortlisted for the 2015 Aurealis Awards for Best Children's Fantasy Novel. [43]

The third book in the series, Blueberry Pancakes Forever, was published in Australia and Germany in 2016,[44] and in the United States in 2017.[45] It was shortlisted for the 2016 Aurealis Awards for Best Children's Fantasy Novel. [46]

Rose has also been published in several collections including Some Girls Do edited by Jacinta Tynan (2007), Mosaic (2008) edited by Rosalind Bradley and Dirty Words: A Literary Dictionary of Sex Terms (2008, USA) edited by Ellen Sussman. [47]

She has also had fiction and non-fiction, including reviews, published in Island magazine,[48] Art & Australia,[17] Art Monthly[49] and Meanjin. [50]
