Lisa Stone
Lisa Stone is a mom of three and lives in England. This is when she started writing. She has always been a writer, from when she was at school, writing articles and poems for the school magazine. During her teens she started writing short stories, a few radio plays, and novels.

That said, Lisa has not always been a reader. She didn’t read too much as a child, however during her teens she found this whole new world suddenly and read true life, crime, mystery, and the classics.

Lisa finally made it onto the bestseller charts in 2007 with “Damaged”, a book that she wrote under the pen name of Cathy Glass. Under this name she writes foster memoirs about her experiences of the social services and fostering.

She finds writing cathartic, as do a lot of people, so it was the medium that she turned to when she was attempting to come to terms with the awful experiences of some of the kids that she had fostered. She also wanted to raise public awareness, that many kids suffer and sometimes they’re let down by the system which should have protected them. Writing a gripping novel, a true page turner highlights their plight.

As a writer of suspense thrillers she often will ask herself what if? What if this happened rather than that? Or why a certain person would react like they did? So often fact will be stranger than fiction and her books begin with a fact that she develops. You might be surprised to know just how many patients experience changes in their dislikes and likes after a transplant operation: “The Darkness Within”. Or how simple it is to look into somebody’s home through their CCTV: “Stalker”.

“The Darkness Within” is the first stand alone novel and was released in 2017. How deep in our hearts does evil even lie?

When the critically ill Jacob Wilson gets a lifesaving heart transplant, his parents are most relieved that their loving son has been saved. But before long, his family must accept that something has changed inside of Jacob. Their formerly loving son is slowly being replaced by a violent man whose mood swings leave them horrified, however is it really their fault?

Rosie, Jacob’s girlfriend, has become convinced that the man she loves is suffering from stress. However when his moods even turn on her, she starts doubting herself, and she can just hide those bruises for so long.

When a horrible crime is committed, Jacob’s family must confront their darkest fears. Has the boy that they raised become a monster? Or could somebody else be to blame?

This is a spellbinding crime novel with a dark heart that had readers gripped and captivated right from the start.

“Stalker” is the second stand alone novel and was released in 2018. Somebody is always watching.

Derek Flint is a loner. He lives with his mom and spends evenings watching his clients on the CCTV cameras that he has installed inside of their homes. He enjoys their companionship, even if it is only through a screen.

A series of crimes hits his neighborhood, and DC Beth Mayes starts suspecting that he is involved. How could he know so much about the lives of the victims? Why won’t he allow anybody into his office? And what’s his mom hiding in that lonely, odd house?

While the crimes get more violent, Beth has to race against time to learn who it is behind these attacks. Is she going to uncover the truth before time runs out? And could Derek be even more dangerous than even she’s guessed?

Derek is a fascinatingly complex who so very well written, and you are still sympathetic for him even though there is a spate of serious crimes which seem to link him as the perpetrator. The strength of the storytelling keeps you hooked, and is an instantly fast moving and creepy story that is easily enjoyable for both the technophobe or tech savvy reader.

“The Doctor” is the third stand alone novel and was released in 2019. How much do you really know about the couple living next door?
