HUGE congratulations to Suzy Turner on the publication of Looking for Lucy Jo and today Suzy is sitting round my pool talking about her fabulous latest novel.... it's all yours Suzy so take it away...
I'm delighted to have just published the latest book in my Morgan Sisters series - Looking for Lucy Jo. I had great fun writing this one because part of it takes place in my home region of the Algarve in Portugal. It's always enjoyable to write about places that I know so well - whether it's the local town of Portimao where I do my weekly shop, the majestic Sagres cliff tops (the most south westerly region of Europe) an hour away or our little Monchique mountains (I live in the foothills), because I can go into so much more detail, about the people as well. I'm really looking forward to hearing what readers think about it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed they'll love it as much as the others in the series!

About the author:
Although Suzy is a Yorkshire lass at heart, she left her home town of Rotherham, UK, to move to Portugal with her family when she was ten. The Algarve continues to be her home, where she lives with her childhood sweetheart, Michael, two neurotic dogs and a cat who thinks she's a princess.
Shortly after completing her studies, Suzy was offered the position of trainee journalist for a local English newspaper. Her love of writing developed and a few years later she moved on to become assistant editor for the region's largest English language publisher. Since then she has also worked as the editor of one of the Algarve's most loved monthly lifestyle magazines. Early in 2010 however, Suzy began working as a full time author. She has since written several books: Raven, December Moon, The Lost Soul (The Raven Saga), Daisy Madigan's Paradise, The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw, The Temporal Stone (The Morgan Sisters) and Forever Fredless.

Previous books in the series:
The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw
Adopted sisters Lana Beth and Emma Jane are polar opposites, but when the same strange 'tattoo' suddenly appears and winds its way up their bodies within days of each other, they soon realize there's more to their relationship than they could ever have imagined.
Sent off to London for two weeks of 'work experience', the Morgan Sisters soon find themselves being initiated into the ancient Praxos Foundation, one that protects the innocent while fighting evil, both human and supernatural.
At the same time, Lana Beth and Emma Jane must also investigate why the sweet but sometimes pesky ghost of Josiah Grimshaw just won't leave them alone.
What people are saying about The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw
"I would go so far as to say that this book could be the beginnings of a series as good as those by J.K. Rowling!"
"This book is a great start to a potentially brilliant series"
"I loved the bad guys, the graveyard antics, the talking dead, the superpowers of the kick-a** ninja chicks, and the rite of initiation the sisters go through"

What people are saying about Daisy Madigan's Paradise
"Wonderful addition to the Morgan Sisters series! I might suggest reading The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw first, but this should stand on its own even if you haven't. Such a lovely, well written story - I highly recommend it and all of her books."
"A fantastically evocative YA novella perfect for both younger and older teens."
