Lynda has lived in the Middle East and has an interest in Asia.

She loves children but is unable to have children of her own. She understands and supports others in the same situation and has worked to highlight the difficulty childless people face integrating in a society where family life is assumed.

Lynda is famous for her romantic comedy novels. She has been called ‘A Comedian in a Book’, ‘Chicklit Royalty’ and ‘A Comic Genius’. Her writing style has been liked to Sophie Kinsella but is refreshingly down to earth with characters that become your friends.

Lynda is a prolific writer, blogger and when not writing can usually be found wasting her time on Facebook.

She lives in Oxfordshire with her second husband and cat.
