Up until two years ago Lyn Sofras was a harassed English teacher, running her own department in a busy Surrey comprehensive and her life could not have been more stressful. A short illness made her re-think her lifestyle and she took the plunge to give up teaching and focus on her life-long ambition – to be a writer. Of course she felt she’d always been a writer; ever since she was first able to write she was penning little stories and losing herself in fictional worlds, but this was for real. She wrote all day and every day, and even made money from it! She began as a freelance writer and editor to subsidise her creative writing and from there, her first contemporary romance, ‘The Apple Tree’ was born. Manic Scribbler Blog  Find Lyn on Twitter

However, most of the novels I review are given to me as a complimentary review copy by the author or publisher. I do not receive  monetary compensation for the reviews I complete.
