Lucy is the critically acclaimed author of The Liberation's Child, The Trader of Saigon and The Road to Rangoon.
Her novels have been shortlisted for the Author’s Club Best First Novel Award, the Guardian’s Not The Booker Prize, longlisted for the Waverton Goodreads Award, named a Top Ten Book of the Year by The Bookbag, and featured widely in the press.
A great fan of the underdog, she’s drawn to people and places grappling with political instability, writing about periods of time when societies are at their most precarious and fraught with risk.
Lucy grew up in Cornwall, UK, and now lives in Hampshire with her husband, sons, and a neurotic black cat.
