Biography:

I am a nurse by background and have considerable experience researching medical and nursing history: I have a PGDip in Applied Social Research, I have been a member of the committee of the Royal College of Nursing's History of Nursing Society, and a recipient of a Monica Baly research bursary.

My research into some interesting historical characters from these fields has resulted in my first non-textbook publication 'The Nightingale Shore Murder' (the first and only book telling the true story of this unsolved crime from 1920, and the book behind Channel 5's 'Agatha and the Truth of Murder'); 'Petticoat Government', the story of the York Home for Nurses; and my forthcoming book 'The Crimes of Dr Gramshaw' due out in 2020. I am already giving talks on Dr Gramshaw ahead of publication.

I was an experienced conference speaker during my professional life, and I now enjoy sharing these historical stories with groups as a hobby. I live in York and am happy to travel around Yorkshire and Humberside, or further afield, to speak. I also can also provide all my talks online. For more see www.rosemarycookauthor.co.uk
