About Lucy Magicmaker

Lucy Magicmaker was born in The South Hams in South Devon in 1967. Born Devonian, and ancestrally Cornish, she has a strong bond to the energy and landscape of The West Country of Great Britain. After spending most of her life working for American Corporations, and travelling extensively to many lands far and wide, she returned to Devon & Cornwall with the belief that "less might well be more ?" Settling herself down in the beautiful landscape of The South Hams, she now spends her time writing, and paddling in the sea with her little dog, Beatrice. Slowly, but steadily, Lucy has built a miniature mouse-sized company she can call her own. Quietly, chipping away, she's become a writer, illustrator and self-publisher of a series of Marmalade the Mouse books. With a firm belief that "You make it happen ! You make your wishes come true !", her new life has begun ...

The Story of Marmalade the Mouse and His Jammy Adventure is the first book in Marmalade the Mouse's Great British Series. First published in 2011, The Jammy Adventure is set on the River Dart in South Devon, England. "This is where I was born. It helped enormously to set my first book in a place I know very well," said Lucy.

The second book in Marmalade the Mouse's Great British Series is based in Cornwall, Lucy's ancestral homeland ... a place very close to her heart. "The Cornish Adventure means so much to me. The story is dedicated to my ancestors, the Trewarthas of Gwithian, who've been living in Cornwall since records began," said Lucy. "This is the book that helped me to realise, I want to write FUN HISTORY for children ... SNEAKILY DISGUISED as an exciting mouse story."

The third book in the Marmalade the Mouse Great British Series is The London Adventure ... a 5,000 year history of London, set amidst a romping story involving Marmalade and a very SPOILED royal corgi called Rupert. The Story of Marmalade the Mouse and his London Adventure' is hoping to launch in Summer 2023.

So, here we are in the Spring of 2023 ... Marmalade the Mouse has undergone a bit of a makeover, and is about to re-emerge from his allotment, where he has been pondering MANY NEW ADVENTURES.

Lucy Magicmaker's message is ... "YOU make it happen ! YOU make your wish come true !"
