All About Me

Welcome to StefLoz Book Reviews.

At the moment I am taking time out of blogging. I have a couple of blog tours and a few upcoming books I’ve promised reviews for, and of course I will be honouring these. I will still be reviewing the books I do read, on Amazon and Goodreads, but just small reviews. I have so many old books on my Kindle that need to be read. I will still be catching up on the latest books from my favourite authors. I’m finding the social media side overwhelming, and my Twitter feed is far too full of books. I need to step back from it all xx

I’m Steph Lawrence and live in Stoke-on-Trent.

I’m 51, a full-time working wife, mother to a teenage son and a dogmum to my Cairn Terrier, so my life is pretty busy.

For my sins I’m also a Port Vale season ticket holder. Saturday afternoons are always taken up with football during the season. My first date with my husband was to watch the Vale!

I love books. I love reading and always like to have my kindle close by.

I’ve posted reviews on Amazon UK and I joined NetGalley in 2015. Joining NetGalley means I get to read and review books before they are published, which I find a real honour. I love the buzz around publication days, and joining in on social media is such fun.

I decided to add a book blog where I will post regular reviews of books I’ve read.

I’ve always read chick lit and popular fiction.

I’ve started to read a lot of crime fiction too. And psychological thrillers!

I will try most topics, as long as it keeps me interested.

I try to find time to read and review books, although I would love to have all the time in the world to do this I am unable to read as much as I would like. I read for enjoyment, and won’t feel pressured into reading quickly for the sake of reviewing. I always meet the publication date though, as my TBR pile is never very big. I tend to read about 4 books per month, so not prolific compared to most bloggers!

The blogging/reviewing community is so welcoming and friendly. Such a lovely bunch.

I would love to sit at home all day with a mug of tea and a cake, but that’s just never going to happen!!

  1. Book Review Request: Psychological Crime Thriller

    BLOOD MOON: Inspired by a true story of kidnapping, torture, extortion and murder the novel gives the reader a vivid look at true evil as well as courage and the will to live. The novel includes a Foreword by the only surviving victim of the crime and an Afterword by the private investigator who was instrumental in solving the case. There is also an addendum with pages from the original deposition given by the PI to the prosecuting and defense attorneys.

    Blood Moon will be released by Tell-Tale Publishing on Dec. 4th.

    I look forward to hearing from you.


  2. Hi Stef,

    I just discovered your wonderful website. As a new author, I’m investigating writing communities on the net, and find yours to be one of the most comprehensive and professional I’ve come across.

    I would like info on how I can contribute, be featured, or have my books reviewed. If you have a free moment, please check out my trailer for my novel “Hidden” on my website at I write mystery and suspense, I also have a police thriller coming out this month.

    Looking forward to hearing from you, Linda
