An English novelist, non-fiction and short story writer and broadcaster, Mosse (born on this day in 1961) is best known for her 2005 novel Labyrinth, which has been translated into more than 37 languages. Mosse first got involved in the writing world as a publishing assistant, then editor and journalist before switching over to managing a regional theatre. It was while serving in that role that she began writing creatively and came out with Labyrinth.
Although best known for her adventure and ghost fiction, usually inspired by real history, Mosse's non-fiction, particularly Becoming A Mother and The House: Behind the Scenes at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, also have been best sellers and television specials.
“Usually I decide on what it is I'm writing next by the books I'm reading,” she said. A champion for the free library system, she has done many fund-raisers and written on their behalf.
