About Lucy From Lucy

Moon CravingI learned to read when I was four – that’s what happens when you have four older siblings and a gorgeous, squalling infant vying for your mom’s attention. Thus began a serious love affair with books. I soon read through all the childrens books in the house and took to climbing my mom’s bookshelves to read her books. She put paid to that when she discovered me reading a Reader’s Digest Condensed Version of “The Godfather.” Sigh. I had to wait until I entered school to get another good selection of books and read every one in my school’s library starting with A authors and working my way to Z and back again. I read my first romance as a pre-teen and fell in love with Mills & Boon books.

For me, they were life changing. I read about the type of hero I didn’t know existed and was determined to marry. And I did. My husband is the alpha male at the end of a book. Loving, sexy and dedicated to his family. We had a whirlwind courtship and were engaged within three months, married in eleven and fifteen years on from meeting him, I still adore him.

Moon BurningI write about relationships because nothing else in the world fascinates me more. I write sensual books because the intimacy between a man and a woman is a key element in their relationship and again…I find this element intriguing.

Realizing I wanted to be a writer was terrifying for me. I’m a very goal oriented person and no one can guarantee they will sell their books, they can only guarantee failure by quitting. That’s what I kept telling myself as the rejections piled up along with the finished manuscripts. I sold Book #13 to Mills & Boon, my ultimate publisher … the one place I was sure I could never sell to. Dreams are grand, but reality is better.
