Hi! I'm Lucy, and I write fiction. I recently earned an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and currently serve as the Prose Editor for Devil's Lake. In the past, I've worked in advertising, tech, entertainment, and broadcast media. Though raised in the suburbs of New Jersey, I have spent most of the past ten years in New York City and Shanghai. My stories explore these and other spaces, with special focus on characters who have a shifting sense of what they call "home."
My work has appeared in Ploughshares, Asia Literary Review, Sixfold, and elsewhere. I am the 2015 fiction winner of Ploughshares' Emerging Writer's Contest and 2016 winner of the August Derleth Prize, awarded by UW-Madison. My first novel, WHAT WE WERE PROMISED, goes on submission in September 2016.
