Welcome to Readers Write to Know! I asked you, my readers, what questions they would ask their favorite authors if given the chance. This week, I am excited to introduce to you former teacher turned romantic suspense author Lynette Sofras. I really enjoyed this interview. I love that she gets past writers block by doing housework — that is exactly my strategy! And, I find it incredibly romantic that she came up with her current release while in Greece taking a ferry boat from Patras to Ancon. Please enjoy as Lynette answers the questions you readers asked.
Hi Hallee, First of all thanks so much for inviting me to your wonderful blog. About me: well I’m a former Head of English who gave up teaching almost three years ago to focus on my writing and have never looked back since. I’ve loved reading and writing all my life and you could therefore say my lifelong dream has now come true.
Tell us about your current release.
I’m excited about In Loving Hate because it began a long time ago in my head but only recently saw the light of day. It’s a romantic suspense – here is the blurb:
How far will the rich and powerful go in order to achieve their goals? That is the question Lyssa must decide when she finds herself caught between two formidable adversaries: powerful business tycoon and shipping magnate, Alex Andrakis and close childhood friend, ‘Dynamic’ Nell Winters, brewery heiress and prolific businesswoman.
Following the failure of her marriage in Greece, Lyssa returns to her family home in London, to discover that her mother, a once-celebrated actress, is now facing crippling debts. When Lyssa begins to investigate these, she becomes embroiled in the intricate business dealings of Nell and her arch-rival Alex. Irresistibly drawn towards widower Alex and his unhappy young son, Lyssa begins to uncover some unexpected and disturbing facts.
The more involved she becomes, the more shocking are the discoveries she makes. The conflicts culminate in a frightening battle for survival as Lyssa finds herself the prime target between the possessive Nell and obsessive Alex. With her loyalties deeply divided, can Lyssa make the right choice for everyone concerned?
