Rita Fellows Lulu

Rita lives in Newport, South Wales and spent her working life as a nurse in Wolverhampton, Somerset, West Wales and South Wales, gaining insight into many personalities and their reactions to emotional or traumatic events. Around retirement age, she returned to her first love, writing. She studied a Writer’s Bureau course, joined a creative writing group then gained first class honours in BA English and Creative Writing, before studying the Bath Spa MA in Creative Writing. Rita has had a short story published and has since focussed

on writing her novel Lulu which highlights several social problems.

Has Cherie killed her brain-damaged four-year-old, Lulu? From the moment she complains that her daughter has gone missing from the park, the answer is unclear, even to Cherie. The subsequent search for Lulu has devastating consequences for many citizens of the socially deprived Welsh valley town of Pontypool, while the detectives battle with their own messy private lives and Cherie’s mental condition gradually deteriorates. The ending is a surprise to everyone.​
