Origin Story

I love stories. I always have. I didn’t take to reading very quickly, because I had trouble with memorization, and it wasn’t really until 3rd grade (after some aggressive and very effective tutoring in phonics) that I was able to read with any confidence; but I never stopped telling stories.

Stories can be many things. They can be fiction or nonfiction. They can be books; movies; video games; songs. We think of a separation between high art and low art, but I think it’s all art, and it all has value. I like to love and critically discuss everything, from Shakespeare to Harry Potter to Sailor Moon. I think of writing as an act of critical analysis, whether you’re writing a paranormal romance novel or a dissertation on Sherlock Holmes. Hopefully this blog is a mix of that.


If you want to get fancy, Lucy lives in Portland, OR, and has a MA in Writing/Book Publishing, with a focus on Young Adult Literature, and a heaping disregard for literary snobbishness (she was an English Major–she’s seen and spouted her fair share). She works as a social media marketer, and has dabbled in developmental editing as a freelancer.

The art in her banner was done by the talented Robin Kaplan, with logo and banner design by the wonderful Angelica Mendoza. Unless otherwise stated, all writing on this blog belongs to Lucy, as do any opinions, which do not reflect on her employers or clients.
