LUCY ANN UNWIN

Children's author, Lucy Ann Unwin

Lucy’s professional background is in journalism. She was an music journalist at BBC 6 Music for 10 years, where she was privileged enough to interview the likes of Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Adele, report live from the side of the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury, and absorb hundreds of hours of wonderful live music. She also wrote the entertainment news for Ken Bruce on Radio 2 for years and did a stint presenting the BBC On Demand entertainment bulletins for the Red Button.

 

Brought up in Birmingham, Lucy has lived all around the UK, from Newcastle to Brixton, Worcester to Chesterfield. She also lived for a year in the Chilean city of Valparaiso, and for three years in San Francisco, where she tutored children and young adults in creative writing as part of the 826 Valencia writing programme, set up by Dave Eggers.

 

She has now settled on the Sussex clifftops with her husband and two daughters (and tortoise), where she divides her time between writing, editing, book-selling and reading as much children’s fiction as she can.
