About Me

Addiction to Fiction

I'm Lynne and I'd like to welcome you to my blog. My love of reading began in 1983 when, as a teenager, I was given Graham Masterton's The Pariah as a gift. I was instantly hooked and my addiction to fiction began.

My working background is in the British media industry where I was employed for over two decades at a Media Monitoring and Press Clippings business. Through my working experience I fully understand the impact publicity and reviews can have upon reaching a wider audience.

A lifelong lover of cats, in 2019 I set up Burlish Cattery and now get to care for lots of gorgeous kitties while their owners are away. Yes, it's been a complete change of direction and a lot of hard work but totally worth it.

Getting back on track, the books I read and review come from a number of different sources including contacts within the publishing world, Advance Review Copies from specialist reviewer websites, those offered to me through my blog and books I've purchased myself.

Finally, just so you know, each review normally contains an Amazon.co.uk affiliate book link. This means that if you purchase a book through one of my links, you won't pay any extra than the listed Amazon price but I receive a few pennies for the sale. Any money received is ploughed straight back into buying more books for review.
