Lucy Swan author of Shallow Lives debut book.
It took her a long time to get here…
Would be the main response, of my exasperated family and friends, about the birth of my debut novel. Not because I’ve talked about it for so long, (well I have but anyway…) but because I’ve been right around the houses and lived many different lives to get here: a published author.
And whilst I may be older than I hoped, I have only recently had the confidence and tenacity to actually complete one of my many musings.
Shallow Lives, is a book about people. About life. About our best bits and our worst. Taken from one of my many rambling notebooks, I felt it was the time for my three characters’ voices to be heard.
At just a nudge over forty, my greatest work to date has been my beautiful family. As well as writing, I am a teacher, wife, mother and (baby faced) grandmother. Living on the Lincolnshire east coast, my favourite thing ever is walking my beloved best friend and GSP: RosieDog, on the beach.
Both of each will keep you up to date with my next project.
I am currently writing my second novel ‘The Golden Figure’, which will be out sometime this winter.

An Amazing Debut Novel
This is the story of Jessica and Aimee and the men that cross both their paths, from their wild teens through to their forties. I was hooked two chapters in and I had an “whoa” moment when I realised just how much fate had shaped their lives from a very early age. What you see is not what get with these two characters, characters that are so well written about you can see picture them in your head. Throughout the whole book, the screenplay was running through my head at the same time. The story is fast paced and unputdownable, a fantastic first novel from Lucy Swan. I look forward to her next.
