Stacey, Lyndon

About the author

Lyndon Stacey rides a motorbike and does dog agility (not at the same time). She has written a series of well-received thrillers based in the equine world, with backgrounds ranging from show jumping to the more conventional racing backgrounds used by most contemporary English writers who specialise in combining the horse and mystery. She has parted company with Hutchinson, who published her first books, and is now published by Severn House.
