Saffra colour

This post is taken straight from Alison Jack here.

Today I’d like to introduce the third of the authors who will be sharing the Books, Beautiful Books stall with me at Mill Road Fair on 6 December. Saffra has already achieved an impressive amount in her young life, having tackled teen bullying and severe ill health to gain academic qualification with flying colours. She has since become a published author with Pegasus, interspersing her writing career with acting and modelling. You can get to know a little more about Saffra from the following press release and links, and she would be delighted if you’d come and meet her in person next Saturday.

PRESS RELEASE

Pegasus Publishers are pleased to announce the publication of ‘Destiny Falls’ by Saffra Monteiro available to order from all major book stores or direct from the publisher.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Destiny Falls is the first in a saga of three novels. It follows the unique story of a nineteen-year-old girl. Solly is beautiful, talented and courageous – the linchpin of an Alpine Search and Rescue unit, and the leader of a highly competitive ski tournament team. With the handsome and charming Gwain by her side, a host of colourful friends, and an abandoned wolf cub for company, what could possibly go wrong?

But hidden away among the snowy peaks, all is not well in the sleepy village of La Tourunche. Not long after Solena’s awaited return, a mysterious and elusive figure begins watching her from the woods. Is he a figment of her imagination or real? And what is the secret behind the talisman hanging on the wall of Madame Perregaux’s dress shop?

As the plot begins to thicken, a member of the team begins to wreak havoc and with time their motivations become all too clear. Events take a turn for the worst and matters are left on a jaw-dropping cliff-hanger – quite literally! As lives hang precariously in the balance, all hope seems to be lost. But will someone come to the rescue or is it too late for Solena?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Born in Cambridge, nineteen-year-old actress, model and writer, Saffra Monteiro, known by her friends as Bambi, is very young for someone who has already had a far from ordinary life.

Early teenhood was made impossibly hard for her by bullying, followed in her mid teens by extremely poor health after contracting a severe form of flu. As a true fighter she pulled through the worst of it – writing during her illness became a crucial life line and creative outlet which saved her.

Now a strong minded young lady, she has completed her GCSEs and A levels with flying colours. She has immersed herself in the world of writing and is passionate about what she does. It is a huge achievement for her to be one of the youngest writers to be published with Pegasus.

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon. Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre. Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.
