A WOMAN from Ventnor has published her debut novel.

Lyndsey Gallagher, 34, has published romance novel The Seven Year Itch.

The book ­— set in both the Isle of Wight and the West of Ireland ­— is a traditional girl meets boy story with a few modern twists, inspired by the weekend Lyndsey met her Irish husband.

Lyndsey attended Archbishop King Middle School and Medina High School, before leaving home to study dental hygiene at the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

Lyndsey now has two young children and has been living in Ireland for six years.

The Seven Year Itch is available on Amazon.
