A Gift of Gold by Jacquelynn Luben

Lucia is a voluptuous beauty, so who could imagine she would fall for Happy Jack, a middle-aged gambler and racketeer, with a wife and children? But fall she does, into a relationship going nowhere. After 20 years, his wife has died, and Jack is free to marry again. Surely now, Lucia can expect to be his new bride? Alas, she is to be sadly disappointed. A short story.

About the Author

Jacquelynn Luben lives in England, in the house which she and her husband built, in a pretty village in rural Surrey, which she describes in her autobiography, The Fruit of the Tree. Her son and daughter have now fled the nest. She is the author of two non-fiction books, many short stories, articles, poetry and two novels.

She has written for various magazines, and also gives occasional talks to Surrey groups on self-publishing and publicity. Her story, Damaged Goods was broadcast on Radio Southern Counties, and many of her other short stories have met with success - at the Guildford Book Festival, locally - and at competitions throughout the UK.

Jacquelynn’s first longer work of fiction, A Bottle of Plonk was published in the UK by Goldenford Publishers, and subsequently brought out by Virtual Tales as an e-book, entitled Have Wine, Will Travel. Her novel, Tainted Tree, was placed second in the Winchester Writers' Conference novel competition, 2007, prior to publication by Goldenford Publishers, and was featured in Family Tree Magazine in December 2009.

For her degree in 2002, she wrote a dissertation on 'Harry Potter and other children's books', and she is currently working on her third novel, Innocent Bystanders. She was invited to give readings of her books in Germany, in June 2009.
