About Natasja Rose
Natasja has been writing since a very young age, though those notebooks have been lost in the Old Schoolbooks Cupboard and (hopefully) will never see the light of day.
Most of her stories, published or otherwise, began life as conversations with friends that sparked an idea that grew into a story or poem.
Her publishing adventures started with poems and short stories in focus newsletters like ABA and AMBA, and online sites like Readwave, before finally taking a chance with self-publishing.
Natasja Rose lives and works in Sydney, Australia, but travels whenever she can afford it and has the time.
Her greatest wish is to visit all the places in the world that inspired her writing as a child, and create new stories for new inspirations.

The real battle for Earth's liberation wouldn't be fought between armies, but by a scattered handful of survivours fuelled by spite and a basic knowledge of how to survive a world where everything is designed to kill you.

A big part of the Time Agency's success was due to their costuming department, a variety of men and women who made fantastic clothing... and who really wished that the Agents would pay more attention to details like what year and geographical region they were heading to, and the policy on advanced notice for anything pre-1920s. Honestly, do they think all of that hand-stitched embroider and beading is easy?
A humorous read likely to make you a lot more sympathetic to the costuming department, "The Time-Traveller's Seamstress" is an entertaining book that will keep readers engaged to the end.

Whether it was sourcing ancient coins in a usable condition, only for the Agents to lose then less than a week later, or trying to convince Management to approve a payroll system from the current century (seriously, did anyone still use paycheques for wages?), it was one problem after another.

With the rising cost of History Degrees and most potential candidates having too many other commitments, and the rest of the pool thinking Netflix is the height of historical accuracy, finding recruits that don't require months of re-training is becoming... difficult.
Recruiting Field Agents is simple. Just find the nearest person who has theories about how to change history, and aim them at prospective time travellers who have a different plan. All you have to do is keep track of where and when the Agents should NOT be sent.
Recruiting the more specialised support staff? ... well, that's a bit more difficult, and it's not getting easier by having Management poaching the cream of the crop in an attempt to get some more competent Field Agents.
