An author originally from Diss is returning to the town for an event to mark her first in a series of new children's books.
Rosie Brown, 22, who grew up in Diss, and went to school in the town, will be signing her first book, Why Hares Have Big Ears, at Diss Publishing on Saturday, October 12 from 10am.
After leaving Diss Rosie developed her talent for art after completing a 3D diploma in college then went on to complete a three-dimensional honorary diploma at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Since completing her diploma she has successfully run her own art studio in Stockport, developing and expanding her creative flair for sculpture and illustration.
She says growing up surrounding by the South Norfolk countryside led to a love for nature and animals and inspired her to write a series of children's books.

In Why Hares Have Big Ears children can discover fun and imaginative answers that explain just how animals are the way they are: why are foxes red? How did giraffes get such a long neck? And why do wolves howl at the moon?
She said her aim is for her books to inspire children with a sense of imagination and a love for the earth. She hopes that those who read the books will grow up questioning the world, and that they will be encouraged to make a positive change.
