Great characters, they are so believable. Great story. Lisa very cleverly reveals a little at a time, keeping you wanting more, wanting to know just what did Lucy do? A terrific debut novel, I'm looking forward to the next one.”
- Catherine Claudot
The Sunrise Girl tells the story of best friends Lucy and Em, who use men, sex, booze and nicotine to navigate a self-destructive course through dating, marriage and life. Set against the dual backdrops of the UK city of Norwich and the Spanish rave-party island of Ibiza, we are privy to the exploits and sexual encounters of these 'good-time' girls...This is a great book to get lost in, with some juicy sex-scenes and relatable characters.
- Tabetha Rogers Beggs, author.
Forgiveness, honesty, raw sensuality and courage. Lucy’s path to self-discovery in ‘The Sunrise Girl’ will captivate readers with its emotional punch, irony and well-timed humour. It’s a refreshing, passionate tale of what a woman ‘can do’ as opposed to what she ‘should’.”
- D.D. Line, author & editor.
A thoroughly engaging debut novel. Lisa has skillfully used 1st person pov to reveal a complex character beset by guilt. Lucy’s journey into her past is revealed at a great summer reading pace. The minor characters are equally distinct and given the opportunity for interesting stories in their own right. Lie back on your bed or the beach and enjoy this great read.”

A wonderful thing happened to me the other day - I received a heartwarming review of 'The Wash' (from the Passages anthology). This is one of the most magical things an author can experience - to know when a story has touched someone deeply.
I am incredibly grateful to Dannielle for not only reading my story but for also taking the time to let me know how it made her feel. Her review truly made my day.
Have a look at Dannielle's blog for more reviews. She is a wonderful supporter of WA authors and is also a writer.
Also, what was a 5,000-word story is now a novella, currently being reviewed by my publisher! Watch this space for updates.
