Biography of Lynette Creswell

IMG_0400 Large Web view

 

Lynette was born in London, England, and from the tender age of five was raised by her grandmother and given books to help keep her quiet. Lynette found she had a passion for reading and subsequently started writing once she began school.

Years later, Lynette’s husband was so impressed with her ability to capture children’s imaginations with her short stories that he encouraged her love of writing by buying her a laptop in the hope she would write something more substantial. So with a little push in the right direction, Lynette decided to write a fantasy trilogy and the subject would be something that all children love to read about (and most adults too) – magic!

Lynette’s inspiration came from childhood books written by Enid Blyton. The Enchanted Wood and The Faraway Tree were her first real taste of fantasy and later on Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Series captured her own vivid imagination.

Her first novel, Sinners of Magic was published in 2012 and is now receiving attention from both London and American film producers. Betrayers of Magic became the second book of the series followed by Defenders of Magic. Her new book, Clump, A Changeling’s Story is due to be released by October 2014.

Winner of the ‘Write On’ Competition, which saw one of her short stories being made into film for TV and narrated by the famous actress, Julie Peasgood. Lynette has since had one of her short stories published in America, hitting No 4 in the US bestsellers charts. The Witching Hour is only available via Amazon.

Lynette lives in North East Lincolnshire with her husband and King Charles Spaniel, Ruby. All of her grandchildren are the apple of her eye.

  1. Yes, I think I know you well now! Lovely biography. AND I know just what you mean about your granddaughters. Eleanor (aged 8) and Toby (aged 5) are so dearly treasured. Unfortunately they live miles away – one of those tedious west-east journeys with Fen roads and blooming tractors, literally HOURS away! Always worth the time travelling though.

    • Thanks Joan for letting me know you like the bio. It’s so hard to know what to write without droning on. I’m relieved you enjoyed it and yes, definitely our grandchildren should be treasured. Sorry to hear yours are so far away and I do believe one of my sons is moving to Nottingham shortly so it will be a couple of hours drive away to see my eldest granddaughter (Chloe who’s five) from now on. Life is never easy! Lol

  2. I have never been able to write a bio like this one. I always put too much information. This has given me an idea to try again.

    • Hi Bonnie,
      Thank you for dropping by and I am really pleased you liked my bio. I do think it is a difficult piece of writing to complete but if I have managed to give you an idea to help you to refine yours, well, that’s a bonus 🙂

    • Hi Michaela, thank you for you wonderful comment. I promise I will keep writing, and ‘Clump, a Changeling’s Story’ will be out in paperback shortly which means I will be able to concentrate on my next book. Best wishes and thank you for all your support.

  3. Hope your Clump launch went well today Lynette, and you get lots of sales. I thought those attending the online launch today seemed lovely supportive people, particularly your guest authors. Best of luck with it, you deserve to do well x
