A recovering English and media Department head, Lyn Sofras gave up a high-level career in teaching a few years ago so she could concentrate on her writing and fulfil her lifelong goal. She writes contemporary women's fiction, usually featuring love with a supernatural twist. Readers have previously compared her writing style to Jane Austen, Danielle Steele and Maeve Binchy. She often touches on themes of love and loss, deception and families.
Her debut novel, 'The Apple Tree' (a bittersweet romance about mistakes and mistaken identity) won the grand prize in a writing contest held by Prism Book Group (formerly Inspired Romance) and was first released in 2011. Two other contemporary romances followed in 2012, 'Wishful Thinking' (about celebrity A-listers, fame, fortune and jealousy), which enjoyed instant success, and 'Shopping for Love' (based in the confluence of global finance and primary teaching). She then wrote two romantic suspense novels, starting with 'In Loving Hate' (a billionaire romance about power games and romantic desire, and first published by MuseItUp Publications in 2012). More recently (2014), she published 'The Nightclub', a suspense-filled story about a pair of vulnerable sisters, set in the grimy world of an infamous London club.
Other publications include 'Killing Jenna Crane' (2014), a romantic thriller concerning a successful but self-opinionated author, whose behaviour towards women sends him on a bleak journey of self-realisation. Her most recent publication 'Unworkers' is a modern ghost story/women's fiction, involving five women whose lives are changed forever when the past encroaches on the present thanks to a house filled with evil. She also proudly co-wrote a short science fiction story with her gifted son called 'Surveillance' about the sinister dangers to gifted children in a dystopic society.
