Soon after finishing her graduate studies in history, Luba landed on the doorstep of Canada’s largest museum, the Royal Ontario Museum where she worked for more than 20 years. Moving from positions in the education and programs departments to the museum’s consulting branch, she concluded her career in the office that managed the museum’s recent controversial architectural renovation.
After leaving the museum, Luba worked for several years in an administrative and research capacity for a private museum consulting firm with offices in Toronto and London (UK). She currently works in the educational sector and teaches yoga in her home town of Toronto.
Theft by Chocolate is Luba’s debut novel, and the first in The Chocolate Capers trilogy. She has been amusing people with her writing since the age of eight. Her love of chocolate precedes this age and she has been in and out of chocolate rehab for most of her adult life. When not writing or looking for her next chocolate fix, Luba can be found in dance classes, trekking to remote waterfalls in the mountain rain forest of Puerto Rico, running through the streets of Paris, entertaining crowds with dramatic readings of her book, or doing any other number of calorie-burning activities that help offset her chocolate intake.

Theft By Chocolate
by Luba Lesychyn
Theft By Chocolate is a sassy museum heist mystery thriller about a woman looking for chocolate, love and an international art thief in all the wrong places. And in that order! This love letter to the museum world, in which the author worked for over twenty years, surprises with its unusual combination of Bridget-Jones’s-Diary-like humour and thriller elements.
