    Although born in Wales, Lucy Christopher grew up in Australia and has always been fascinated by its wild land. Now living in the UK again, Lucy has earned Distinction in a Creative Writing MA from Bath Spa University. She recently completed a PhD exploring the ways that Australian literature represents those wild places, particularly in its writing for young people.

    Her debut novel, STOLEN, explores her thoughts about this wilderness in the story of a teenage girl who is kidnapped and taken to the Outback.

    STOLEN has won prizes around the world. In the UK it won the Branford Boase award for the most promising work of children’s fiction by a first time novelist, as well as the Hull Children’s Book prize. The Children’s Book Council of Australia shortlisted it for their Book of the Year, and it won their Junior Judges Award for older readers. It also won the Australian Gold Inky Award. In the U.S. it has been named a Michael L. Printz Honor Book by the American Library Association.

    Lucy's second novel, FLYAWAY, was shortlisted for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize, the 2010 Costa Children's Book Award, and the 2011 Prime Minister's Literary Awards.
