Lucy’s short story, Mr Woolly’s Fossil Shop, is available for download from Alfiedog.com .

She is writing a quirkily humorous Middle Grade chapter book series. There is a series plan for 3 or 7 books. The first book is ready for beta readers. The second is ready for editing.

Lucy is a Diploma qualified Educator in a Montessori kindergarten. When she can’t find the right book, she writes and illustrates books for the children, who are 3-6 years old.

In her previous life she was a Corporate Travel Manager in London and has a Chick Lit novel in progress about living in England and travelling in Europe.

Lucy has also begun a YA fantasy series set in Edinburgh. She has Australian/British nationality and spends Christmas in Scotland/France each year with her Scottish in-laws.

Lucy is a member of BookLinks and WriteLinks (brisbanewritelinks.com) professional children’s literature group. She has a writers profile on their site and has been a member since Nov 2015, attending PD’s and critique groups each month.

She participated at the Big Draw event at QLD State Library working with children to inspire them to illustrate stories.

Lucy is planning to present her first Children’s Creative Writing workshop at The Nest. http://www.nestcommunity.org.au/
