Wow! You found me! Well, let me introduce myself. My name is Lucy and I have an unquenchable thirst for storytelling. Many people ask me why did I leave the UK and choose to settle in Spain. I initially struggled with these inquisitive questions about my past origins as I wasn´t entirely sure how I came to live here miles away from the comfort of my shire, marry as the world was ending as we knew it, rescue a dog and live in a cabin in the woods. Some might say, it was just destiny, I say “It’s a long story”.  So with this in mind I decided to begin tracing back to the very beginning of my transition from a house moth to a migrating butterfly and wrote my memoir Alice in the Jungle.

I’ve been writing, illustrating, keeping diaries and making memory scrapbooks as long as I can remember, mostly as keepsakes. If I’m not trying to make sense of my past, I´m leaping into the future, dreaming of what could be or when the next adventure may come, but saying that, I have finally settled. Life is still dreamy but in bitesize chunks. Time is spent on cultivating a Wonderland for you to explore and writing absolutely anything I put my mind to. So with that, I sincerely hope you enjoy my stories and illustrations.

Much love
