Lola



Don't Call me Baby book coverThis piece began life as a book cover submission. It wasn't chosen in the end. So I suppose it could now be considered fan art. Inspired by the description of the main character. I have pared it down from the full cover to depict the character of the protagonist and her (as the author describes them) "evil eyes".

From the first of three Lola Hussey mysteries by Betty Byers; Don't call me baby.

"Lola Hussey, 24 years old, no boyfriend, still living with her mum on a London housing estate and stuck going nowhere in a third rate Private Investigation Agency. Life had to get better surely? When Derek Lewis, rich Australian playboy, is found dead after falling from the roof of his office in salacious circumstances, Lola's opportunity to flex her investigative muscles had begun."
