Ros Thomas has been a journalist for twenty-five years and writes a weekly column for The Weekend West magazine. She lives with her partner and three children in Perth, Western Australia.
After finishing an Arts degree majoring in English Literature and Psychology at the University of Western Australia, Ros got a lucky break and began reading news for Perth radio stations 6KY and 96FM before moving into television. She then spent seventeen years as a journalist in television current affairs, working for the Seven and Nine Networks and the ABC.
Ros is fondly referred to by her husband as ‘The Minister for War’, or ‘Blossom’ (preferring the latter) and she lives for her children, writing, photography, baking cakes and dieting.
