Rose Thurlbeck

rose thurlbeckRose was born and grew up in a time when computers were not a part of everyday life. She was introduced to Elite on a BBC micro and the game captured her heart. Rose won our 2016 horror competition, she was shortlisted in our Sci_Fi Synthesis competition and her wonderfully idiosyncratic fiction also graces the pages of Elite: Tales from the Frontier and Synthesis.
