Maud

In 1962, a pit explosion at Hapton Valley colliery, near Burnley, Lancashire, killed nineteen people. Maud Waggett, the resident nursing sister, went to the face to give morphia to the wounded and dying men. She was later awarded a gong from the Queen for her bravery, but also faced disciplinary action from the NCB, because at the time, it was illegal for women to go into the mine.

Read about her in A Pit Story.
About the Author:
Shelli Rosewarne has always had a dream in the back of her head about wanting to be a writer, from the time she was handing in ten-page stories at primary school and driving her teachers crazy. However, like with so many things, life and paying the bills got in the way and she’s worked in various jobs from call centers to shops and offices. She eventually realized life is too short not to try and follow your dreams and has recently had her first novella published with Breathless Press—with another contracted for next year and various works-in-progress in the pipeline. She currently lives in Edinburgh with her long-suffering fiancĂ© and slightly psycho cat. When not writing, she loves reading, music, and photography.
