About Lynda Stacey
As well as being an author of psychological thrillers, Lynda also works a full time job as a Sales Director.
Working two jobs is something she's often done and has been privileged to have been a nurse, a model (in her much younger days), an emergency first response instructor and a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor … and yes, she was crazy enough to dive in the sea with sharks, without a cage.
Following a life changing car accident in 2008, Lynda was left with limited mobility in her right arm. Unable to dive or teach scuba diving anymore, she turned to her love of writing, a hobby she’d followed avidly since being a teenager.
Her own life story, along with varied career choices helps Lynda to create stories with challenging and unpredictable plots.
After joining the Romantic Novelist Association in 2014 under the umbrella of the New Writers Scheme, Lynda's debut novel 'House of Secrets' was published in 2015 and 'The Sister's Next Door' came out in July 2021, with her new publisher Boldwood Books.
She currently lives in a small rural hamlet, with her ‘hero at home’, whom she’s been happily married to for over 25 years.

A fake date that left her fighting for her life!
Nine hours and eleven minutes …
That’s how long it’s been since Ella Hope was beaten to within an inch of life and left for dead.
She lies, unable to move and praying for somebody to find her, as she counts down the minutes and wonders who could have hated her so much to have hurt her so badly.
Was it the man she went on a date with the previous evening, the man linked to the deaths of two other women? Or somebody else, somebody who wants her out of the picture so much they’re willing to kill?
Whoever it is, they will pay. All Ella has to do first is survive …

Can a secret be worse than a lie?
Every time Kate Duggan looks in a mirror she is confronted by her guilt; a long, red scar reminding her that she was ‘the one to walk away’ from the car accident. Not everyone was so lucky …
On the surface her fiancé Rob is supportive – but the reality is different. He’s controlling, manipulative and, if the phone call Kate overhears is anything to go by, he has a secret. But just how dangerous is that secret?
When Kate begins work at a firm of private investigators, she meets Ben Parker. His strong and silent persona is intriguing but it’s also a cover – because something devastating happened to Ben, something he can’t get over.
As Kate and Ben begin their first assignment, they become close. But, what they don’t realise is how close to home the investigation will bring them, or who will be hurt in the process …
