[Please note, my third person bio to be used in publications is further down the page]

I’m Lucy Felthouse, and I’m a chocoholic, a writer, a marketer and a web geek. I dabble in a bit of everything; but primarily I do the following things:

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, and have been published since 2006 in magazines, books and online.

This site has information about how I got started with my writing, where I’ve been published and so on. Check out my blog to see what’s happening with my latest projects, or head on over and check out my book reviews (which aren’t just of erotic books). If you’re looking for more general information on erotic writing and authors, might I suggest heading on over to Erotica For All. Yes, that’s one of mine!

When I graduated from university I started working in PR & Marketing. In early 2011 I decided to become self-employed; writing for part of the time and doing web design, PR & Marketing for the rest of the time. You can find out all about the services I offer on my website, Writer Marketing Services.

More About Me

I graduated from the University of Derby in June 2006. My final year dissertation was on erotic literature; and how women’s roles in the genre have increased as social attitudes change.

I have written seriously since secondary school, but it wasn’t until the second year of my A Levels that I decided to go to university and study Creative Writing. It was in my first year at University of Derby that one of my friends persuaded me to have a go at writing erotic literature. So I wrote Sam & Katie which was based on my friend’s fantasy of having sex with his high school teacher. I took the completed piece into university and it went down incredibly well with all my friends that read it. I’ve never looked back.

I’ve written for various magazines and websites, and you can find a list of books I’ve appeared in on my Published Works page.

My hobbies and interests include; reading and writing, watching films, checking out other writers’ websites and blogs, spending time with friends and family; walking and camping. My greatest achievements to date are:

  • In May 2007 I did an eight-mile walk around Carsington Water in Derbyshire in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, I raised over £120.
  • Climbing Snowdon in June 2008. I raised £457 for the British Heart Foundation. The total amount raised by myself and my colleagues was just over £8,000!
  • In September 2009, I completed a Ladies’ Driving Challenge organised by Marie Curie Cancer Care. I raised £290.
  • In July 2010, I took part in the Race for Life for Cancer Research UK. I raised £332.
  • An anthology I edited, Uniform Behaviour, donates a portion of the proceeds to Help for Heroes.
  • In 2012, I contributed a story to the Felt Tips anthology, with all proceeds going to an organization that helps struggling schools supply their classrooms.
  • I co-edited and contributed to Coming Together: With Curves in 2013, with all proceeds of the book going to Parkinson’s UK.
