Meet the Author

Lucy is an award winning children’s writer with 25 years’ experience in TV, Film, Animation, Puppets, Books and Theatre. She wrote her first book at five (soon to be published under the name of Clacketty Clack, as part of an e short story collection), and her first play at 8, a nativity play which was performed for many years at her old school. She went London university where she read English, before embarking on a writing career that included advertising copywriting, journalism, TV and film scriptwriting, books and now theatre.


She has worked on numerous children's TV shows, including triple award winning Shaun the Sheep, Angelina Ballerina, Chuggington, The Blobs, Gypsy Girl, Magic Key Adventures, the Hoobs and her own creation for CBBC, Big Kids.


Lucy is now also an author, with seven books published so far.


‘Nickolai of the North’, a fantasy fiction about the childhood of Santa Claus, for 8 – 12 year olds, was first published by Hodder in 2005. Shortlisted for the Rotherham Children’s Book Award, nominated for the Highland Children’s Book Award 2006 and the Lincolnshire Young People’s Book Award 2006, it has achieved four foreign sales so far – in Japan, Russia, France and Italy.


The second book in the series, ‘Nickolai’s Quest’, a sequel, was published in October 2007.


The film rights for Nickolai of the North have recently been re-optioned to Veneration Music who are in partnership with Pandemonium Productions and plans are under way for a major movie version.


Lucy has also written a stage musical adaptation of Nickolai of the North which was performed Christmas 09/10 at the Marine theatre in Lyme Regis, Dorset. Now published by Jasper Publishing, the play will be performed at more small theatres this Christmas.


Both Nickolai books are to be published as e books this year and Lucy is planning to write a third title to complete the series.


Two new e books are currently available on this site - 'Goddess in Pyjamas', the first in a fantasy adventure series set on a faraway planet, plus a free short story taster, Skye’s Secret Mission. .


There are more e book series in the pipeline and there will also be plenty of short story collections, giveaways such as prequels to her main novels and interactive story competitions.


Lucy will also be making her playscripts available as downloads, including Nickolai of the North the musical, Six Characters in Search of a Story, (also performed in Lyme Regis Oct 2010) and Kill the Lights, co-written with Duncan McIntosh.


Previous print books include 2 spinoffs from her TV episodes for Disney’s pre-school ‘Animal Stories’, ‘Sammy the Hippo’ and ‘Camilla the Camel’, and ‘Lily the Lost Puppy‘, a book for 4 - 7 year olds, part of the Puppy Tails series, for Working Partners/Macmillan publishers.


Lucy also does teaching and author visits to schools, universities, arts and litfests, libraries and book clubs, including her now popular 'Hands on Story Workshop with Takeaway Results. For more info go to the schools page on her website.

    Okay

    Storyline was aimed at pre-teens or younger. Definitely not adult fare.

    Concept sorta borrowed from everything with slight name changes. Unoriginal and sorta boring.
