About Deborah

DeborahJayDeborah Jay writes fast-paced fantasy adventures featuring quirky characters and multi-layered plots – just what she likes to read.

Living mostly on the UK South coast, she has already invested in her ultimate retirement plan – a farmhouse in the majestic, mystery-filled Scottish Highlands where she retreats to write when she can find time. Her taste for the good things in life is kept in check by the expense of keeping too many dressage horses, and her complete inability to cook.

She has a dream of a day job riding, training and judging competition dressage horses and riders, and also writes books and magazine features on the subject under her professional name of Debby Lush.

A lifelong fan of science fiction and fantasy, she started writing her first novel aged eight, and has never stopped. Her debut novel, epic fantasy The Prince’s Man, won a UK Arts Board award and was an Amazon Hot 100 New Release. The second book in the series is due out shortly.

Her eco-Urban Fantasy, Desprite Measures, (first in a projected 5 book series) and the companion stand alone short story, Sprite Night, tell the tale of a Scottish water sprite trying to live a human life in the Scottish Highlands, and are currently available on Amazon.

She has also published a multi-author anthology of science fiction and fantasy tales on behalf of her writer’s group, including stories from such well-known names as Tanith Lee, Liz Williams, Cherith Baldry (aka Erin Hunter), and many more. Included in the anthology is Jay’s SF short, Perfect Fit, a story of genetic manipulation.

About The Prince’s Man

ThePrincesManRustam Chalice, dance tutor, gigolo and spy, loves his life just the way it is, so when the kingdom he serves is threatened from within, he leaps into action. Only trouble is, the spy master, Prince Hal, teams him up with an untouchable aristocratic assassin who despises him.

And to make matters worse, she’s the most beautiful woman in the Five Kingdoms.

Plunged into a desperate journey over the mountains, the mismatched pair struggle to survive deadly wildlife, the machinations of a spiteful god – and each other.

They must also keep alive a sickly elf they need as a political pawn. But when the elf reveals that Rustam has magic of his own, he is forced to question his identity, his sanity and worst, his loyalty to his prince.

For in Tyr-en, all magic users are put to death.

Award winning novel, The Prince’s Man, has been described as ‘James Bond meets Lord of the Rings’ – a sweeping tale of spies and deadly politics, inter-species mistrust and magic phobia, with an underlying thread of romance.
