Lucy's first novel, The Secret of Nightingale Wood, was published in 2016 and was Waterstones Book of the Month, shortlisted for the North East Book Award and the Awesome Book Award, and was described as ‘startlingly good’ by The Daily Telegraph who placed it at Number 10 in the Top 50 Books of 2016.
