In between writing fantasy novels, Lucy works as a bookseller for Waterstones. She has a BA in English & Creative Writing from the University of London and went on to complete the MA in Creative Writing in 2010. She lives by the sea in Devon (UK) with two cats (who are really dragons) and a bedroom full of stories. She loves long walks in the surf, cultivating a personal (and highly impractical) bedroom library and playing the piano. STARBORN is her début adult fantasy novel and the first book in the Worldmaker Trilogy.

Book 3 (Firestorm) due in 2017 too - December. Am sorry it's so far away!(less)
