Lucy Courtenay

  • 5 stars across 37 books
    Lucy Courtenay has officially been writing children's fiction since 1999, and unofficially for a lot longer than that. Her desk drawers are full of half-finished stories waiting for the right moment to emerge and dance around her study in a shower of exuberant paperclips. Her latest books indulge her love of teenage romance:  The Kiss   is published by Hodder, with  Movie Night  and  Girl at Sea   coming in 2018.
