About this author

I am an Englishwoman currently living in Bulgaria. While living in England, I spent eleven years as a child protection social worker, the last three of which were as a manager. I learned a lot about the human race from doing this work. I believe this has helped me to add believability to the characters in my books.
I enjoy reading anything with compelling stories.
In my spare time, I also like to walk in the Bulgarian countryside, and go ten-pin bowling with my husband.
I like honesty, a sense of humour and intelligence in a person. I dislike insincere people and sycophants.

I have written three books. 'Sabine Dolls' 'Parallel Triangle' and 'The Birchman' The latter is currently up for sale by Musa Publishing. Sabine Dolls has also been signed...more

Sabine Dolls (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 11, 2010 05:12AM
Description: Think of a beautiful planet where nobody has to work or worry about money. There is such a place called Tynai, sixty thousand light-years away. However, Tynai women can’t bear children and procreation is done in a laboratory. Five Earth women, stolen by Tynai men eager to produce children naturally, reluctantly find themselves living on this alien planet. What follows is an explosion of sexual tension between Galbryn, the enigmatic leader of the alien men and Branca, our feisty Earth heroine. When this gives way to passionate love, hatred, revenge and war follow. Taste and touch the experiences of the five Earth women, but also feel the disappointment of the indigenous women. Be charmed by the spurzots: androids programmed only to please, but be wary when they are re-programmed to kill. Most importantly, be right there as the two main characters exchange sublime moments as only true lovers can.
Parallel Triangle (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 11, 2010 05:07AM
Description: New technology allows Orion to travel from his world, Earthzad, to the sister parallel world, Earth. He returns home a hero, but is more interested in impressing the beautiful leader of his region, Jacosta. She, on the other hand, has her own private reasons for not wanting to get involved with him. Rebuffed, Orion visits Earth again to monitor a new Seer, Elizabeth, an Englishwoman recently given the Sight by Earthzad women so that she can receive visions and help prevent troubling events on Earth. For Earthzad's protection, Orion must not make his presence known, but without an explanation of what is happening to her, Elizabeth believes she's hallucinating, and is unable to prevent the kidnapping of a child. Determined to help Elizabeth save the child, Orion travels back and forth between parallel worlds and finally reveals himself to Elizabeth. Meanwhile he finds himself increasingly attracted to both Jacosta and Elizabeth. With danger escalating for Elizabeth and the child, as well as on Orion's homeworld, he knows he must make a choice, but circumstances dictate otherwise, trapping the three lovers in a parallel triangle. How can he love two women - one of whom resides in a dimension where he cannot remain? The answer's not easy for any of them.

Lisette Brodey Hi Sandy:

It's so very nice to meet another fellow author. I am really touched that you liked reading my memoir of Ground Zero. It was an experience I shall never forget and it means a lot every time I am able to share with even one person. THANK YOU!

Happy Reading & Writing,

Lisette
