Contemporary Fiction

About Me

I was born in 1952. I am originally from the Lanarkshire area but have now lived in Livingston for more than thirty years. I am married with three grown-up sons.

Some years ago I studied Psychology, Sociology and Criminology with the Open University and was awarded a B.A. in 1990.

I have always wanted to write fiction; so I took a writing course with The Writers Bureau some years ago.  Whilst practising writing synopses, I wrote a description of a story that had been in my mind for years, and I then went straight into writing it up as my first novel.

Melrose Books published my debut novel, which is entitled Living a Lie. This was published under my own name of Elizabeth Scott. I have now self-published it as a paperback with the title of Lynsey's Secret, under my pen name of Rosanna Rae. My second novel was published by Austin & Macauley on 28th April 2011 and is entitled Jo's DilemmaMy third novel, 'Karen's Affair', was published in 2011 and my fourth, entitled 'April's Man', came out in 2011.  I published 'Lola's Money' in 2015. I have now published my sixth and final novel, entitled 'Hazel's Home'. All of these books are available as paperbacks and Ebooks on

My readers

If you enjoy reading contemporary romantic fiction, you will enjoy the Rosanna Rae novels.  My main aim in writing is to entertain the reader, whilst also achieving a high standard of realism (unlike certain other publishers of the genre, which I will not mention by name)!
