Lucie Towers is a writer and illustrator from Sydney, NSW. A graduate of Communications: Media Arts & Production and International Studies in Japanese (UTS), Lucie has a passion for storytelling, animation, terrible monster movies, puns, fairytales and all kinds of absurdly whimsical, twisty-turvey word nerdy tomfoolery. Her Dungeons & Dragons character is a gentle bugbear named Crushkin (this is very important information).
She is a Committee Member of the CBCA NSW Branch, and a children’s bookseller. She enjoys picture books, middle-grade, YA, graphic novels, feeding gremlins your long-lost odd socks (at midnight, no less!), and speaking about herself in the third person (but you didn’t hear it from me… er, her!).
Lucie was the Membership Intern at Writing NSW from Feb – June 2018.
Book Review / Hugo Makes a Change by Scott EmmonsNovember 7, 2018
“If you’re going to sink your teeth into one picture book about eating a balanced diet…Hugo Makes a Change makes for a read as sweet, juicy and refreshing as a big red crunchy apple on a dark moonlit night. It’s an absolute treat.”

“The goal is to inspire enough interest, that when you send them the book you pitch they go, ‘ah, I remember you, I remember that.”
Spotlight On / Graham Wilson
‘Rather than being motivated by imagined commercial success, be driven by the joy of telling stories which give pleasure to readers.’
