Lorna Dounaeva is a quirky British crime writer who once challenged a flamenco troupe to a dance-off. She is a politics graduate and worked for the British Home Office for a number of years. Her debut novel, FRY, is a chick-lit psychological thriller which combines romantic suspense with an intriguing crime mystery that will keep you guessing until the very last page. Her influences include Single White Female, The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, The Exorcist and American Psycho. She has two active toddlers who keep her busy wiping food off the ceiling and removing mints from USB sockets. She is addicted to coffee and anticipates an intervention any day now. She is not thought to be dangerous.

    Hello there, Lorna! It’s not often I get to say that! πŸ˜‰

    We seem to more than our name in common: My self-published, quirky and funny memoir is coming out real soon and I have a social science research background. Interesting, huh?

    How could I not follow a blog like yours? πŸ™‚

    Hi, Lorna. I’ve been tagged with the Next Big Thing Blog Hop, a self-interview style post where you answer 10 questions about your latest book.

    I thought with your book about to come out it would be an opportunity for you to share some details with the readers of your blog. Absolutely no pressure to participate, but it might be fun.

    For the questions and my answers you can check out my post: http://petedenton.wordpress.com/2013/02/13/the-next-big-thing-blog-hop-part-2/

    What a great, fun sounding profile especially the quirky sense of humor. I grew up with a dad (born in Leeds) that had that great Brit humor. πŸ™‚ You’ve got an intriguing background for your breakout novel. Wish you tons of success! Paulette

    Hi Lorna (just never get tired of that!),
