What to do with 150 Million

As a big fan of psychological thrillers, I can hardly wait for the release of When Polly Won the Lottery next week. Penned by talented and prolific author Lucinda Clarke, the book promises to be as spine-tingling and emotional as her other work.

Here's a glimpse:

Polly London was found on the steps of a polyclinic in London when she was only a few hours old. She was approaching thirty when she received a text telling her she had won over £150 million in the national lottery. A whole new world opened up, but would it change her for better or for worse? How do you react to winning a fortune? Do you keep it a secret or shout from the rooftops? Polly did both, with alarming consequences. From that moment, her life took two separate paths, but at every step of the way, she was unaware of a shadowy figure that followed her all over the world. Who was he and what did he want? This is a book with a difference, with an ending you'll never expect! Please check out the Reader Beware warning at the beginning of the book!

Lucinda E Clarke has been a professional writer for almost 40 years, scripting for both radio and television. She's had numerous articles published in several national magazines, written mayoral speeches and advertisements. She currently writes a monthly column in a local publication in Spain. She once had her own newspaper column, until the newspaper closed down, but says this was not her fault! Five of her books have been bestsellers in genre on Amazon on both sides of the Atlantic, awarded several medals and certificates and previously won over 20 awards for scripting, directing, concept and producing, and had two educational text books published. Sadly, these did not make her the fortune she dreamed of allowing her to live in luxury. Lucinda has also worked on radio—on one occasion with a bayonet at her throat—appeared on television and met and interviewed some of the world's top leaders. She set up and ran her own video production company, producing a variety of programmes, from advertisements to corporate and drama documentaries on a vast range of subjects. In total, she has lived in eight different countries, run the 'worst riding school in the world', and cleaned toilets to bring in the money. When she handled her own divorce, Lucinda made legal history in South Africa. Now, pretending to be retired, she gives occasional talks and lectures to special interest groups and finds retirement the most exhausting time of her life so far; but says there is still so much to see and do that she is worried she won't have time to fit it all in.
