Lucy graduated from the University of Reading with a degree in English, and went on to enjoy working at both Manchester University Press and Oxford University Press.
She has lived in Oxfordshire for the past 13 years where she has been kept busy raising three daughters, ranging in age from 4 to 13. She has taken an active role in their learning, both through supporting their schools, and also with sport and music outside of school.
In her spare time Lucy loves to travel, and spends time in France whenever possible. She has also travelled in Japan, where she was fascinated by the different cultures and attitudes of the people she met. When at home she loves gardening, walking and cooking.
