About the author

Lynne Fisher

A writer who is passionate about plunging the depths of what it means to be human, who is an artist, a nature lover, and who shares her life with her soul mate and a cat.

Lynne was born in Durham City in 1962. After moving to the Scottish Borders in 1998 she rekindled her love of art, becoming an artist, tutor and illustrator, before going on to study with the Open University as a mature student. Here, she gained a first class honours degree in the Humanities, with Literature and Art History, before going on to do a diploma in creative writing. Literary fiction is her writing style.

On Turtle Beach is her debut novel, inspired by a fascination with the nature of sibling bonds and the exotic setting of Dalyan in Turkey. This was followed by After Black. Set in Cheltenham, it draws upon the retail world of the early nineties and life inside a department store, explored through the central character of Janet, who needs to come to terms with a troubled past of shadows to move into the light of personal growth.

Lynne is currently working on another novel concerning the struggle of midlife changes, a memoir, and a collection of short stories. She spends her time writing, blogging, painting, volunteering in social care and trudging the fields on her doorstep.
