About Glynis Smy

I live in the UK, in the seaside town of, Dovercourt~Harwich, where I enjoy writing novels. I've written historical romance/suspense, Medical romance and my latest WIP is in the crime genre. The Victorian era fascinates me and the best part of writing a novel is often the research. Proud writing moments in my life: Shortlisted for Festival of Romance Fiction 2014 New Talent Award Reaching second round of Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2014 Maggie's Child: reached #1 Amazon best-seller: Historical Romance Victorian /February 2014/ebook & book paid list. May 2014 #3 Historical Romance Victorian, and #25 in Historical Romance paid top 100 best-seller list. Top 100 in three categories on Amazon UK best-seller listings in 2015. Seeing my books in a Suffolk (UK), library. Over the years I've written short stories in a variety of genres. I've also won a few poetry contests, my first was at the age of twelve, (a poem about the Bangladeshi war). I also won a children's short story competition where the prize was a first-aid box, I was so proud but my husband found it amusing because we owned two pharmacies. My articles have been published in magazines both in the UK and Cyprus. I am also featured in various places on-line. When I am not writing, I enjoy making greetings cards, Cross Stitch, fishing and the company of my little granddaughters.

    Thanks for posting this one, Glynis! πŸ™‚

  2. Going to grab if you don’t mind.
    Good job.

  3. Glynis – Congratulations on a well-deserved award! I’m keen to learn more about your medical romance novel. And I’m happy for you that you can ride your bike so much. I don’t live in a particularly bike-friendly area *sigh.*

    • Glynis Smy says:

      Margo, thanks. Mm, I am not sure where the medical romances will lead but I am writing the stories when I need time out from the main historical writing. Ah, my bike. I love it! I spend several years without one, and now wonder why … oh yes, vineyards and Cypriot drivers. πŸ˜€

  4. Jade Reyner says:

    Can’t wait to hear more about the medical romances and congratulations on the award! Hope you have adjusted to the good old UK weather again! πŸ™‚

    • Glynis Smy says:

      Thanks, Jade. Am trying to remember how much romance there was when I was nursing sick folk. πŸ˜€

      I really appreciate rain as I lived in drought conditions for so many years. Returning to UK opens ones eyes to the positive things a little more. Ask me when it snows and I have to take mother to docs, and the answer might be different. LOL!

  5. I would think the plenty of rain would take an adjustment compared to Cyprus…

    • Glynis Smy says:

      William, I am happy and content back in the UK, and the weather doesn’t feature so heavily in my life. Cyprus is no longer a place for me to live, and I would never return.

  6. dalefurse says:

    Haha, I love 4 and 5. Have fun with your two-year-old. They are so funny.

    Ooh, a new bike! I’m going try biking in to work in the mornings, starting… well, soon!
