Lucy Christopher

Lucy Christopher was born in Wales but grew up in Australia. After various attempts at being an actor, a coffee maker, a waitress and a nature guide, she moved back to the UK to earn a distinction in a Creative Writing MA from Bath Spa University. Lucy took on part-time work as a university lecturer at Bath Spa University, teaching on the undergraduate and the MA creative writing courses, and is currently undertaking a PhD to explore the ways that Australian literature represents wild places, particularly in its writing for young adults. Lucy s debut novel, Stolen, was written as part of this PhD. It won the Branford Boase Award in 2010, and was also on the shortlist for the American Library Association Best Fiction for Young Adults, Children s Book Council of Australia Awards, the Coventry Book Award, the Leeds and Lancashire book awards and the Southern Schools Book Award. It was also long listed for the Carnegie Medal in 2009.
