Welcome to the Saturday Spotlight, a weekly feature that shines the light on Indie and Debut authors. This week I have the pleasure introducing readers to:
~Author of A Woman with no Strings Attached~
by Lucie Novak- 2014
|Jan Hus Statue- Prague|
I live in England, working as a full time family doctor, a GP. I love my job and all those secrets people tell me. Every patient coming through my door is a puzzle. Why are they here? What are they worried about? How can I find out what is wrong? What can I do about it? What if I am wrong?
I love England, although I will always be an alien here. “Where is that lovely accent coming from?” people say. I speak five languages, all of them with a strong Czech accent. Well, the accent is me, it probably shows even in my writing. But I do not think I want to change it.
I taught myself how to read when I was four and most of my youth was spent reading, sometimes in classes, too, with a novel on my lap.
I always liked to read, and I was toying with the idea of writing a book for a long time. But whatever I tried to write in the past was not good enough, so I stopped. I did not write any more until my life changed. I divorced, fell in love again, and changed my life.
My first book, “A Woman with (no) Strings attached”
is a memoir of a sort. The reader can guess what is true and what is fiction.
The book describes the journey of Lucie, a Czech doctor who after spending decades putting everyone else around her first, discovers her true self with the help of her long distance lover. The unusual part of it is the fact that her American partner Tom, who, most unusually, is not the sexually jealous type, not only allows her, but encourages her to explore her sexuality with several lovers and break many taboos on the way. Lucie finds that knowing more about sex makes her a better doctor for her patients.
It is a story of bold moves, adventure, and despite of those extramarital affairs, honesty and love.
It is also about “Life does not end after 50”.
I published my book on 30th June 2014.
This is my first book, but I am already writing the sequel. Writing is fun. I have many more books in my head. This is just the beginning of my writing career.
