Zeecé Lugo grew up in Brooklyn where she spent warm summer evenings sitting on the firescape, listening to Sam the Sham, Herman's Hermits, The Four Tops and watching the neighborhood kids splash around in the open Johnny pumps. She joined the Air Force and saw the world. She got a degree in English literature from Saginaw Valley in Michigan and then became a science teacher at Dade County in Miami. Figure that one out! She now lives surrounded by mountains in a Caribbean island with her fifteen-year-old little dog, Wicked. She stays away from the news, pushy people and social networking. She has grown rather eccentric and reclusive, but she is finally doing what she always wanted to do; she reads, she enjoys the views surrounding her home and she writes. Her first novel, A Whore And A Rogue, just went on sale at eBook stores. She is currently at work on her next novel. Zeecé Lugo is her writing name.

Smashwords book reviews by Zeecé Lugo
on Oct. 16, 2013
Loved it! The first few pages had me laughing so hard, I cried. I loved the characters- Tilly, Daniel, Niq, and of course, Heller. It was such an addictive read that I read it in two sessions. I definitely recommend it, and I just bought the next one, Heller's Revenge.
- Nor Iron Bars a Cage

I had never read anything by this author. I downloaded this book for free from Smashwords, having no expectations since there were only two reviews. Imagine my surprise when after reading just a few pages, I was hooked! It is beautifully written. The words flow like poetry. The world that Ms. Harper created is intricately woven and rich in detail. The story centers around Lyon and Tobyn, friends from youth, lost to each other when a horrendous evil forces Lyon to kill his master and fake his own death. Fifteen years later, Tobyn discovers that Lyons is still alive, but is barely the terrified, quivering shadow of the lively, brave boy he once was. But Tobyn will not give up as he drives Lyon to face the world again, to face his greatest fear, and to learn to love again. I will definitely read this book again and I will recommend it to anyone who considers reading it. I loved it.
- The Locksmith's Dilemma
on Oct. 29, 2013
I have been an avid reader of the Brother Cadfael novels by Ellis Peters, so when I ran by accident into this novel, I was intrigued. The story takes place at the start of the middle ages, the time when the large cathedrals are starting to rise, the merchant guilds are gaining strength, and the Crusades are just about finished. However, not all readers will appreciate the genre.
As the story opens, we meet Girard DeForet, a promising young locksmith journeyman, or as described by a fellow traveler, “A skilled worker on a journey to learn more of his craft.” As the story unfolds, Girard finds so much more than what he initially sought. He finds friends of the heart to share his adventures. He finds work opportunities he never imagined, as the great cathedrals, monuments to the rich and powerful church, vie with each other for the skilled craftsmen. He finds acceptance and begins to thrive in his chosen craft. And more importantly, he finds a girl to love. But Europe is a harsh place at the time. Justice is only for the one who can buy it and wield it. Men of power can buy, use, sell, and kill anyone with impunity. The church, itself corrupt, cares little for the common man except to sell it “indulgences.” Danger lurks all around our hero.
Soon, Girard and his friends find themselves on the run, and they embark on an adventure that takes them to places they never thought to see before. During this voyage, Girard grows and changes in ways he could have never imagined, becoming a man, a monster, a realist, but always, a man of his time. Along the way, the reader gets an image of that period in time, that is hard to forget.
I highly recommend this book. I loved it. I intend to read it again.
