Lucy's adventures

After becoming the first woman to make Partner in a London City Executive Search Firm, Lucy decided it was time to do something a bit different. So, she packed away her suit, exchanged it for a pair of Morris Dancing hankies and some vampire fangs and decided to write a book.

Over the few years, Lucy has been working her way through a self-penned A-Z of British Subculture - from Aristocrats, Battle Re-enactors and Circus Performers to Xtreme Sport Fanatics, Yogi's and 'Zeitgeist' Political Activists - spending a week with each group, learning about their rituals and customs and joining in at every opportunity. 

So far the adventure has involved, an undead LARP battle, a pigeon race, a Sci-Fi cosplay victory, a naturist weekend at a theme park, a knighthood from King Arthur and a vampire 'Rite of Transformation' ceremony. 

"I have found myself in some pretty incredible and bizarre situations", Lucy says, "but writing this book has also taught me some valuable lessons about the importance of community in an increasingly isolating society, about the unquenchable human thirst for a sense of belonging, and about the misguided trust we put in our own prejudice. It has offered me a whole new perspective on the world". 
You can follow Lucy's adventure at, where you will also find details of the release date for her full-length book.
