Gytha Lodge is a multi-award-winning playwright, novelist and writer for video games and screen. She is also a single parent who blogs about the ridiculousness of bringing up a mega-nerd small boy.

She has a profound addiction to tea, crosswords and awful puns. When not writing, she heads up a copywriting team at a global translation firm, where she generally tries to keep all the video-game writing to herself.

She studied English at Cambridge, where she became known quite quickly for her brand of twisty, dark yet entertaining drama. She later took the Creative Writing MA at UEA.

She has signed with Penguin Random House worldwide for the first three books in her crime series featuring DCI Jonah Sheens. She Lies in Wait will be released in J

And I hope I can do that for other people, too.

There are a ton of other good points: that writing is cathartic, stretches the imagination, and is a way of communicating so many things I'd never say to anyone. Plus I'm unbelievably nosy about people. But that first one is the main one, I think. (less)

Do not. Stop. Writing.

I can't say this often enough to sufficient numbers of people. Don't take failure to heart. I've failed many, many times and will do so again. Want to talk through the apparent disaster of a book not selling to publishers? I've been there, and I'm here to tell you it's ok. Honestly.

And if you're ever despairing, talk to other writers. You'll realise that we all have depressing bits in our careers and that it's all about keeping on going. :) (less)

Little Sister by Gytha Lodge
"Not the most realistic of mystery stories, but still a very good telling of what, I think, we'd like to see happen. A setting straight of facts. Is it right that a child is believed or not believed just because they're seen as sulky and difficult? Is" Read more of this review »
Little Sister by Gytha Lodge
"Thoroughly enjoyed this new to me authors book As it is part of a series I will be looking for the others but it is easily read as a stand alone Loved the twists all the way to the end of the story "
Little Sister by Gytha Lodge
"4.5 stars.

Wow! This was incredible. I honestly didn’t know much about the author or the story, but Little Sister really exceeded my expectations.

The fact that I didn’t even realise this was part of a series shows the fantastic attention to detail and" Read more of this review »

“„Niekada gyvenime neleisk sau norėti būti kur nors kitur. Niekada. Kad ir ką darytum, visa priimk. Paskęsti savam pasaulyje ir mintyse kartais svarbu, bet gyvenimas kitoks. Turi patirti tikrą gyvenimą. Turi visa tai išgyventi ir leistis įtraukiama. O tai reiškia priimti sprendimą. Apsispręsti mėgautis akimirka.”
Gytha Lodge, She Lies in Wait

“It was a twilit seven o’clock on a beautiful April evening, and the grounds outside looked a strange, seductive deep blue from the window. She looked out at it and wondered why she didn’t seem to feel anything. She was someone who always noticed beauty. Perhaps, she thought, she had wrung herself dry. Or perhaps it was simply that the world didn’t help anyone by being beautiful.”
Gytha Lodge, Watching from the Dark
