About the Author

Ann Chapman and her husband established Trinity Farm Living Rose Museum in New Zealand over 20 years ago. The museum displays over 1,500 old roses in three acres of garden. Finding and growing old roses has become an obsession and the collection is now of international status. Ann has for some time wondered about the people behind the roses and this book is the culmination of many years of research. Paul Starosta is an author and wildlife photographer who has had over thirty books published, including picture books for both adults and children. He lives in France.
