    Post Now has come the time to introduce myself...

    My name is Lucy (well my pen name is at least) and I'm a story teller...

    I'm nineteen, from Australia, currently working on the first draft of my first novel and I'm going to start studying a creative writing degree in February of next year.

    Most of my stories (both ideas and what I write) are young adult fantasy that's usually set in Australia during the early twentieth century (pre-1970). Although I will come up with the odd story that's set in the modern world or the 1800's (mainly during the Gold Rush era).
