William Rose was born and continues to live in London. He has had, for many years, a special interest in the art and artists of Victorian and Edwardian times and the pioneering explorations of the human psyche that dramatically marked this period. His subject matter also includes religions and the occult, along with humanity's perpetual struggle with its darker side. He has weaved such themes into his novels in which actual historical figures mingle and interact with fictitious ones.

William also gives talks on the background environments for his novels, as well as specific lectures about the art of the late 19th Century Symbolists, and art's representation of mythological subjects. Some of his talks and articles can be found on this website.

He is at present working on his third novel which will create a loose trilogy with the previous two.
