About this author

A former teacher, Lynette gave up her career in education a few years ago in order to focus on her writing and thus fulfil her childhood dream.

Her latest release 'The Nightclub' is a romance packed with suspense. You can find more details of her novels on her website: or Amazon author page:

It's always thrilling to hear a success story in this business, especially when you know the author to be highly talented and deserving. I've enjoyed Gilli Allan's books enormously, so was delighted to hear that after some years of being a self-published author, her work was spotted by Accent Press, snapped up and is now being republished.

Commitment-shy Ellis Crawford, creator of the famous and highly successful Jenna Crane mystery series, finds his comfortable life swept away when he meets Emily, his perfect woman. Despite his deepening love for Emily, Ellis finds himself haunted by painful memories of a previous love whose heart he broke, and begins to regret his past behaviour. On top of that, Emily wants him to kill off his beloved heroine Jenna Crane - against fierce public opinion. But life is too short for regrets and when his own rapidly spirals out of control, taking his reputation as an author with it, where will Ellis turn for help?

Lynette Sofras My début novel 'The Apple Tree' recently won first prize in a romantic story contest and is being published as an e-book (provisional release date 16 December). I would love to hear your comments on the first chapter available to read here on Goodreads: ( I am both excited and nervous. Thanks :)

Lynette Sofras Very true, which is why I like her. But what I meant was I should perhaps have been more original in my choice as I expect she's most people's favourite!

message 1: by Lissa

Lissa Nah, Lizzie Bennet isn't unoriginal. She's witty, strong-willed, and gets what she wants.
