So, let's find out a little bit more about Lacey, and her work...
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what it was that made you decide to sit down and write this book?
I've always wanted to be a writer, since I was able to write in fact! When other children were spending pocket money on sweets or comics I was buying Care Bear stationery, turning my kitchen cafe into a desk and asking for a typewriter for Christmas. As I grew up I decided I wanted to do something a little more "realistic" until I attended a Travis concert in 2002 where a drunk and emotional Fran Healy urged the audience to "follow your f*****g dreams." Not long after that I was involved in a minor car accident and I realised that if it had been worse, and anything bad had happened to me, I would have died as a book-keeper, having never attempted a writing career. That horrified me.
Tell us a little bit about the book.
What inspires you most when writing?
How do you go about creating characters for your books?
Do you have any method to your wrting, for example, do you work from an outline, or do you just sit down and write and see where the story takes you?
Yes, I work from an outline. I always write my synopsis first and gradually build on it. It took me two weeks of writing all day every day to write the final synopsis for The Tangled Web. I tried just sitting down to write to see where the story took me, but it was a complete mess. It's not for me!
What kind of books do you yourself like reading?
What do you like to spend time doing when you're not writing?
I'd say spending time with my son and husband, going for walks and experimenting with vegan baking. Now that I've finished The Tangled Web I'm going to start training for a 10K next year to raise money for The Anaphylaxis Campaign and also start an Open University degree in the autumn. Well, that's the plan. Who knows, maybe I'll be inspired to write another novel instead!
What plans have you got for marketing your new book?
What are you working on next? Do you have plans to write another book?
Her debut novel, The Tangled Web, can be found on both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com
