L.M. Ollie is a Canadian-born Kiwi living in New Zealand with her husband Frank and assorted animals. Her daughter Alicia is a student at the University of Auckland.
Ollie's first novel On the "Trail of King Richard III" is considered to be "the most concise and historically accurate rendering of the life and times of King Richard III currently in print in fiction". Virtually all the action takes place in the U.K.
Her second, "Creatures of the Chase" is now a quartet: Richard, Yusuf, Mikail and Sarah. These novels are set in various locations but mostly in Boston Massachusetts, Southern Ireland and Morocco. Each book is a gripping and compelling story of lust, wealth and the abuse of power, populated by characters that will both fascinate and appal.
