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.
