Lucy Christopher


Lucy Christopher, author of Stolen and Flyaway, was born in Wales but grew up in Australia, living in Melbourne from the age of nine until she completed her undergraduate degree at Melbourne University.

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 and it has gone on to win the prestigious Branford Boase and the Hull Children’s Book Award. In addition, Stolen was shortlisted in the USA for an American Library Association award for Best Fiction for Young Adults and a Children’s Book Council of Australia award. In the UK, it was on the shortlist for both the Coventry and Leeds Book Awards and the Lancashire and Southern Schools Book Awards. It was also on the 2010 longlist for the Carnegie Medal.

Lucy is currently working on her third novel for The Chicken House.
