Lucy Cruickshanks

Author of THE TRADER OF SAIGON (2013) and THE ROAD TO RANGOON (September 2015). Published by Quercus.

Month: June, 2014

About time!

23 months of research and writing, 13,000 miles to Myanmar and back, 5 discarded drafts, 93,111 words, 337 pages, 1 new baby who hates creative writing, and more sleepless nights than I care to remember, but pop a cork, I’m finally done!

My second novel, THE ROAD TO RANGOON, is now winging its way to my agent and publisher, and if there’s anyone out there who had a bigger Friday feeling, I’ll eat my hat.

Hoping you all had a lovely weekend. I know I did!

Big fat THANKS to The Authors’ Club Awards

I had a cracking evening yesterday at the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award. I didn’t win (congrats to Jack Wolf!) but I did get to thrown on the glad rags, knock back some champers and generally have a wonderful experience that money can’t buy. Thanks for having me, Authors’ Club, and for championing TRADER. The ride has been a whole bunch of fun.
