Toria Lyons is originally from mid Wales but now lives in south-west London. Until a few years ago, she was a civil servant but health problems forced her to give up desk-based work. That's where writing came in – she was always a keen rugby supporter and felt there was many a tale to tell based on a local rugby club.
When not at the rugby or dreaming up another plot, she’s a keen road cyclist and can be found pedalling around the Surrey Hills. She'll often go for a ride and pop in to see a match on her way home, if she has enough layers to keep her warm!
Her other loves include red wine, curry and good dark chocolate.
