About Betty Byers

A long time native of London I now live and work in Singapore with my zoo of pets. Some would say I ran away from high tax and gloomy weather. I would say their powers of deduction might well be accurate. But you know low tax, low crime and hot weather every day can make a woman yearn for the edginess and excitement of London enough to bring it to life in the written word.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder and the imagination flourish.

Betty Byers is not just my pen name but was my mum’s name and I use it in tribute and memory to a woman who gave me my love of books.

Honestly, I have no idea why the reviews are so good. Yes, the plot is well designed but it was not as well written as a 5 star rating should be. I've read many suspense books and this is not nearly as exquisite as those. This is fun to read and has the air of mystery but nothing that makes you want to read on and on. I expected better seeing the reviews but oh well. And there were many religions which just got annoying. Like "million and one times".
But good, nonetheless.

I have just read "Don't Call Me Baby" and found it to be a book I could not put down. I was enthralled by the story line, and the plot had me guessing right to the very end. I am looking forward to reading "Lola's" further adventures. Thanks so much, Betty!!

Once in a while I encounter a book I just can't put down. This was one of them. The characters are well drawn, the actions flow logically, and the characters themselves are extremely interesting. The mystery itself is also interesting and unique. If you don't believe me, download the free 20% and see if you don't get hooked!

I love this book. I couldn’t put it down. Read it in one sitting. The story plot is original and it’s fill with suspense, true romance and so many twist and turns. The prose is well written, the dialogues are superb and I like the way the author handles the character. I love how real and believable the characters are, especially Lola. For those who love mystery and suspense and those who demand imaginative and excellent writing, characters that come alive as soon as they are introduced, original story plot, Don’t call me baby is the book you’re looking for. I recommend this book for lovers of mystery/PI and anyone looking for something good to read.

great read. Lola, love her character and her life too. Which girl won't like to be in her shoe! Joe n Julian....can't decide whom to choose. But ofcourse who would not fall for a character like Joe. He is a girl's guy.

I really enjoyed reading this book, I couldn't put it down. The characters jumped right off the page and her descriptive talent is excellent. The plot line was very well developed and the characters were totally believable. This young lady has talent and if you are a fan of this genre she is definitely worth reading. I was not disappointed and I am sure you won't be either. Keep up the good work, Betty, excellent job.

In a world where everyone talks about women’s emancipation, where we see more and more female presidents and prime ministers, it’s good to see that contemporary writers are also able to write engaging and funny fiction with strong female characters that might just be your next-door neighbour. The thing is that Lola Hussey, the main character in Betty Byres’ book, is not an extraordinary woman with extraordinary powers, ready to save the world. Instead, Lola can be any one of the millions of women out there, ready to take on the world, not afraid to speak up their mind and fulfill their fantasies.
