Me!

Hi!  My name is Imogen Rose. I am a YA (fantasy, time travel, romance, paranormal)  author. I am the author of two  YA series, the Portal Chronicles and the Bonfire Chronicles. 


I was born in a small town in Sweden and moved to London in my twenties. After obtaining a PhD in immunology from Imperial College, I moved with my family to New Jersey, where I've been based for the past ten years.

For as long as I can remember, I have dreamt stories. Stories that continued from night to night, from dream to dream. Going to sleep has always been an anticipation of the story to come.

PORTAL, my first novel, would have remained in my imagination, to be shared only with my daughter, Lauren, had my eight-year-old not insisted that I write it down. In the course of a month, I typed (with two fingers :P ) while Lauren waited eagerly by the printer for the pages to appear, and a novel took shape.

The warm reception PORTAL received encouraged me to continue with the story and the Portal Chronicles. I have since dived right into YA paranormal fiction with my new series, the Bonfire Chronicles.

I am a self-confessed Herm├Ęs addict, obsessed with Kurt Cobain and a certain secret Irish actor, who enjoys shopping, traveling, watching movies and playing with my dog, Tallulah.

I am represented by Marc Gerald and Sasha Raskin (The Agency Group).
