Product description

Product Description

Would you leave your family and friends and follow your husband to start a new life in Africa?

Amie did and lived to regret it. Just an ordinary girl, living in an ordinary town, with nothing but ordinary ambitions, Amie is plunged into danger when her husband is posted to a country she’s never heard of.

As she adapts to a different environment, events overtake her and land her in more trouble than she could ever have imagined.
At the outbreak of the civil war, as the last plane evacuating the expats takes off, Amie is left behind. Now she’s alone with no one to help her.

She’d worked for the government so by chance she was allied to the losing side and the new regime is out to find her. Her husband has a secret he’s not told her which further puts her life at risk.

Now she only has her wits to protect her against the men who would kill her and the predatory wild animals in the African bush.


Amie African Adventure is the first book in the bestselling, fast-moving and thrilling, action adventure series.

About the Author

From a very early age, Lucinda E Clarke always wanted to write, but was ordered to "get a proper job." Journalists were required to drink their targets under the table to get a story, she was told, and alcohol doesn't agree with her! So she dutifully trained as a teacher, and has taught in seven different countries - from primary school infants to lecturing adults in Technical College. She also bred small animals for pet shops, ran the worst riding school in the world and dug up dead Romans on archaeological digs. After she got married, she and her husband moved from country to country, usually one step ahead of the creditors, but eventually Lucinda found the courage to leave him and began to write and write and write. She graduated from radio, to television and then ran her own video production company, winning over 20 awards along the way. She has known great wealth and dire poverty, and has learned many valuable lessons, and her unquenchable sense of humour, and lots and lots of hard work kept her sane. She lived for more than 30 years in Africa before moving to Spain with her second husband; their four children scattered around the world and no animals at all. She writes a satirical column for a local publication and gives talks to special interest groups, particularly on history which is her second love - her husband comes first of course! Amie is her second book, her first, Walking over Eggshells, is a gently humorous account of her dysfunctional family.
