Writer, Teacher, Speaker

Hello! I’m Lucy Christopher, a writer, a teacher, a speaker, and academic. Most of all, I’m a lover of words and all things story. We are all storytellers, whether we label ourselves as such or not. I’m continuously interested in the stories we tell and the way we tell them – I’m interested in how these things are constantly developing, too. Thinking about all this is my life’s work!

What else?

In between writing, and talking about writing, I do lots of other things! I hang out with Rocket, a very speedy lurcher cross whippet, travel a lot to visit all my family and friends across the world, and, of course, read loads of books. I like to read all sorts of stories, from picture books to adult literary fiction to digital stories to poetry. I like to try to write it all too, just for fun mostly!

The Queen on Our Corner

I didn’t notice her before either.
Like everyone else, I just walked by.

that’s where I found Shadow.

My Books

Mostly I write stories for young people, and my books are all very different in style, theme and setting. My new book is a picture-book called The Queen on Our Corner. Find out more about all my stories here.


I love to talk about my stories, lead writing retreats, visit schools, and speak at writing festivals. Find out what I’m up to here and how to contact me for your event.

Everything’s Changed

Those who are observant might have realised that in the past month I have moved countries, jobs, life, everything!


Get in touch if you have any questions about my stories, or if you’d like to book me for a school visit or other speaking engagement. You can also reach me directly through twitter, facebook, and instagram.
