Welcome to my new website! My name is Lucy Hope and I write books for children. My first novel, FLEDGLING, was published by award-winning children's publisher, Nosy Crow, on 4th November 2021.
Fledgling is a dark, gothic story set in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. Cassie Engel's house sits high on a tall rock that overlooks the mysterious Bratvian Forest. One day, during a violent thunderstorm, a small feathered creature from another world is blown into her bedroom. Soon grim forces are gathering, and Cassie has little time to unearth the secrets of her family's past and summon the courage to save everything she knows and loves.
