A former teacher, Lynette gave up her career in education a few years ago in order to focus on her writing and thus fulfill her childhood dream. She writes contemporary women's fiction, often involving romance with suspense or a supernatural twist. She claims 'Killing Jenna Crane', a romantic thriller and 'Unworkers' a modern ghost story/women's fiction are her personal favorites to date. Her recent release 'The Nightclub' is a romance packed with suspense, while her latest, 'Cocktails and Lies' is her first foray into the cozy mystery genre. You can find more details of her novels on her website: http://www.lynettesofras.com or Amazon author page: http://www.amazon.com/Lynette-Sofras/...

It’s rather like experiencing a great dream over which you have (almost) complete control – after all sometimes your characters will have their say. When your characters start to come to life, it feels like being with exciting new friends who totally understand you.(less)

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: (http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/2... 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.
