Ripper, My Love
Growing up in late nineteenth century East London, Kitty Harper's life is filled with danger and death - from her mother, her beloved neighbour and the working women of the streets. With her ever-watchful father and living surrogate family though, Kitty feels protected from harm. In fact, she feels so safe that while Whitechapel cowers under the cloud of a fearsome murderer, she strikes out on her own, moving into new premises to accommodate her sewing business. But danger is closer than she thinks. In truth, it has burrowed itself right into her heart in the form of a handsome yet troubled bachelor, threatening everything she holds dear. Will Kitty fall prey to lust - and death - herself, or can she find the strength inside to fight for her business, sanity and her future? And who is the man terrifying the streets of East London?

About GLYNIS SMY
I'm a 57 year old woman, married for 36 years, a mother of three adult children and grandmother to two grandchildren. I live by the sea in the UK. My love of the Victorian era inspired my historical novel writing. I was a nurse, and am a carer for my mother: my background helps with writing my medical stories. I was shortlisted for The Festival of Romance Fiction New Talent Award, in 2014. One of my historical romance novels made it into the second round of ABNA 2014, (Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award). It also reached the top 100 paid best seller listings in three categories on Amazon UK, 2014 / 15. It was also added to the IndieRecon (London Book Fair Fringe Festival), 2015 brochure, as a recommended read. And my books are housed in Suffolk libraries. My writing has been likened to, Josephine Cox and Catherine Cookson. I've had articles published in magazines both in UK and Cyprus, (where I lived for eight years). I also write poetry and short stories. When I'm not networking, writing or researching for my books, I make greetings cards for charity, enjoy gardening, fishing and walking the promenade.
