Author Biography

I’ve been living in Spain since 2003 but am originally from the UK. I worked in *yawn alert* IT for many years before taking the plunge and moving to Spain permanently. These days, I earn a living as a translator in my community and have become more knowledgeable of body parts and functions than I’d really care to mention.

With lots of free time, I started writing in 2012 with the NaNoWriMo challenge and, to be honest, I haven’t looked back since. Weird really, since English and Literature were my least favourite subjects at school. However, I’ve always loved reading. Christmas annuals (of Jackie, Bunty etc) were my most-wanted gifts and I’d always read them before the turkey was ready to eat.

So, here I am, now penning stories of my own. I’ve even entered a few competitions and had a couple of my ‘winning’ stories published in an anthology, so maybe I absorbed more in those English lessons than I thought.

Anyway, I haven’t settled to write in any single genre yet – I’m still testing the waters – but suspense and the odd legal battle keep cropping up in my tales so I’ll probably settle in the mystery genre eventually. Or not – after all, I changed homelands, maybe I’m meant to be a wanderer.

Lacey’s Law by LS Fellows follows one woman on her path of vengeance against someone who was supposed to be her friend: Carla. Years in the making, Lacey’s cunning plan takes an unexpected turn and she ends up in the hospital with a head wound; however, she soon figures out how to use it to her advantage. While playing house with Carla's husband, Phil, Lacey manipulates everyone into believing that she is a victim and that Carla is insane. However, as the court date looms, will Lacey be able to follow through with her plan to destroy Carla for the wrongs committed against her?

I enjoyed Lacey's Law; the beginning was fast paced and drew you into the story right away. LS Fellows makes you wonder and guess about what Carla could possibly have done to garner such animosity, and although she doesn't tell you right away, she drops clues and doesn't keep it hidden so long that you begin to lose interest. Despite the fact that you could say Lacey is the 'villain' in this book, the author draws you into her life and makes you care about her; her feelings towards her so-called friend are relatable and her feelings for Phil show a softer side that is needed to make her feel human. My only quibble with this story is that it loses some of its tension and pacing towards the end as everything winds down. However, Lacey's Law was definitely an enjoyable read if you like your heroines with an edge!
