I’ve sold over 150,000 books and had three #1 international bestsellers, but Lucy is the FIRST person I turn to when I want someone to teach my audience the business of writing and publishing books

Shaa Wasmund MBE

When the Business Book Awards (founded by Lucy in 2017) announced their first set of winners, Lucy was thrilled by the calibre of books and authors picked by the judges, but shocked to find that every single one was a man. It turned out that only one-third of the entries had come from women authors and Lucy determined to find out why fewer women than men were writing their business books. Extensive research, including a survey and interviews with 50 women entrepreneur authors, revealed that there is significant bias – much unconscious – against women in the business and publishing sectors, but women also share challenges and anxieties about writing and publishing their book that men are less prone to.

Lucy wrote her book about why fewer women write their books, why they should, and how they can most easily make it happen.

Lucy co-founded Rethink Press in 2011. A hybrid publisher, Rethink Press publishes the business books of entrepreneur authors. She started working with Dent Global in 2013 and mentors hundreds of entrepreneurs worldwide through planning and writing their books on the Key Person of Influence programme. In 2017, Lucy Founded the Business Book Awards to celebrate the quality and variety of business writing and publishing.

As well as A Book of One’s Own, Lucy is the author of eleven previous books, including How To Write Your Book Without The Fuss, with her business partner Joe Gregory, and How To Write Fiction Without The Fuss. Her first novel, Blood and Water, was short-listed in the Richard and Judy Novel Competition and published by Macmillan New Writing, followed by Kindred Spirits and Mr Mikey’s Ladies. Lucy’s self-help books include A Simpler Life and The Real Secret, both co-authored with social psychologist, Annabel Shaw.
