Lacey Dearie is an author and journalist from Kilmarnock, Scotland. She is the author of 26 cat sleuth novellas, 2 chick-lit novels, 3 stories about sexually active foods and a blog named Rock Paper Spirit. She has also written a Chaka Demus and Pliers tribute musical, just to pass the time.
Since 2002, she has written for a variety of publications, both in print and online and until venturing into the world of publishing in 2011, spent over a decade working as a paralegal. She ran a kitchen perfumery for a short time and has worked as a mystery shopper since 2007, partly because she likes the glamour of being a spy, although it’s actually super boring and there’s a lot of paperwork involved. She is currently a part-time student with the Open University, studying for a BA in Arts & Humanities.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My son screaming that he wants a pee-pee. I know, it's probably not the answer I should give but it's honest.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mostly through word of mouth. Sometimes I'll seek out a particular type of story. For example, I discovered one of my favourite authors because I was searching for zombie erotica for an article I was writing. The article never got written but I did find a new favourite writer!
