Lisbeth Foye was born in York, England and spent many years travelling, and working, in Europe before returning to England where she now lives in Cambridgeshire.
Reading books has been the one thing in her life which has never wavered. Like many writers, she started writing stories when she was in primary school, it's been a glowing ember inside of her, the one thing she yearned to be was a writer, and now her debut novel The Biggest Lie has been published it has encouraged that ember to burst in to flames.
Lisbeth wrote each character into the book so that they would come across strongly, that each personality is evident and the reader will get to know them personally, to recognize who they are by the way they speak and act in the book.
Lisbeth wants you to become friends with each character; loving, liking or despising them, she wants you to cry, laugh and recognize the situations in the book with those mirrored in your own life or that of someone you know.
When you read the final page, she wants you to feel mixed emotions; hope and faith for the future, joy at those you have come to know and forlorn at the thought of leaving that world, closing the covers of the book in which The Biggest Lie is set.
Lisbeth is currently working on a sequel to The Biggest Lie which should be available in the spring of 2014.
A personal note from Lisbeth Foye:
If you've read The Biggest Lie and you enjoyed it, would you take a moment to leave your comments on Amazon (and any other site you visit) – this is a great marketing tool to get the word out there for Indie writers and, at the same time, it fills me with a glimmer of joy knowing I'm communicating with you in a very special and lovely way.
Thank you xxx
• "A fantastic read, I loved every minute of it, and I was sorry that it had to come to an end -it's a tale of the life and loves of the main character as a young English woman working in Holland, through the Far East to end up in America. A good mix of happy events with a few weepy sections as well - if I could give it six stars I definitely would."
