More About the Author

Lucy Abelson spent her childhood in Kent. From an early age she wanted to be a writer, an ambition she confided to the celebrated Noel Streatfield, whom the child had longed to meet. This happened at a prize giving in the Sevenoaks bookshop. The owner had organised a general knowledge competition for local children which Lucy won. While the sound of clapping reverberated in her ears, she nervously made her way to the table where the great author sat. Anxiously Lucy tried to take the prizewinning booktoken, but Noel whisked it to one side, "Aren't you going to shake my hand," her deep voice rumbled.
"Yes, yes". Lucy held out her hand which the great author grasped. "Now tell me what you want to do when you grow up."
"Oh I'd like to be an author like you," Lucy replied.
Noel's head swivelled round the room as she boomed round the room, "This little girl wants to steal my job.
Happily many of those grown-ups, who seemed to grow more and more huge as they laughed, turning into vast shaking giraffes, became regular readers of the columns Lucy later wrote for the Sunday Express.
Now married, a mother of three and a grandmother of six, Lucy has been a prolific journalist whose wide range of published interviews include film stars and leading figures in the financial world.
She gave up journalism to educate at home her third child who has learning difficulties. Some of the experience she has gained from meeting people in the world of learning difficulties are reflected in her novel "Ancestral Hazard".
Lucy Abelson writes in a traditional style although her stories shine a light on the world as it is today.
As she is currently an avid golfer, Lucy Abelson's last two novels, 'Murder in a Surrey Tribe' and 'Ancestral Hazard' have been set in the world of golf. "Ancestral Hazard" is the first novel to feature women's club golf. Since Lucy's parents met playing mixed foursomes golf at the Wildernesse Club, much of her family's social life as a child revolved round the golf club. Her mother was Lady Captain of the Wildernesse, but as a practicisng doctor, she did not resemble the racy club captain in "Ancestral Hazard".
A former novel "The Passion Principle", is set in the Fulham of the nineties, which Lucy terms the "age of the mistress".
Lucy Abelson's third novel in the Bisley Heath series is "Crisis in a Surrey Harem" which also features Impey Dalrymple, the journalist detective. Her expert knowledge of animal societies equips her to detect vice in human social groups.

Format: Kindle Edition
An enjoyable yarn, carefully weaving together the golf set, the natural world, suspicious deaths and a driven lady detective. If you want to unwind at the end of a hard day's work, and you enjoy a 'whodunnit' that taxes the brain without being so complicated that you need to take notes as you go, then Murder in a Surrey Tribe is the book for you. I'm looking forward to the 2nd instalment already.

A fine book. Racy, humourous and intriguing at unputdownable pace! A splice between Adrian Mole's adventures, Fifty shades of Grey & Hercule Poirot!

Totally recommended: a delightful novel with intriguing plot. Beautifully written by someone who obviously knows the social workings of a golf club! As a non golf player myself I have to admit I found the insight into club life rivetting. Many clever and profound insights into the way people behave (showing that we are only animals after all!)added that extra something to a most enjoyable read.
