Lucy Adlington Quotes

Lucy Adlington
  • Lucy Adlington

  • Description: I write YA fiction, including The Diary of Pelly D, Burning Mountain and Night Witches. My lastnovel The Red Ribbon drew on my interest in WW2 history. It is inspired by the true stories of the dressmakers of Auschwitz. After finishing a book I often wonder 'What happened next?' and so I began 'Summerland'... about a Jewish refugee arriving in England in 1946.
    I also write about dress history: 'Women's Lives & Clothes in WW2' is my new title.
    In between all this writing I give presentations on costume history - such a fabulous job.
    I love switching off with crime thrillers (Lee Child, Agatha Christie...) or with biographies
