New young adult novel from Downham Market's Lucy, 11
An 11-year-old girl from Downham has penned her third book, a young adult novel which she hopes will appeal to an older audience.
Lucy Rowe, a student a Downham Market Academy, has already published two children’s books on Amazon, called the Flying Cat and the Magic Cats.
Her mother, Jane Rowe, who is also an author, said: “Lucy wanted to write a young adults book instead of a children’s novel because she has matured and wants to appeal to an older audience.
“Lucy is doing well with her studies and hopes to be a doctor or a marine biologist when she leaves school. Watch this space for this talented youngster.”
Lucy’s latest work, a dark fantasy thriller called The Eriksons, was written during lockdown and she hopes it will inspire others.
In the style of Tim Burton, the book is a real page turner with lots of twists and turns. It also includes illustrations created by Lucy and is a must-have Christmas read from Lucy and her mother.
Taking after her mum, Lucy published her second literary work when she was just nine and a pupil at Hillcrest Primary School.
Her mother, Jane, starting writing novels about five years ago, during a period of mental health problems. Her debut book, the Desolation of Silence, was published on Amazon’s online Kindle store in June 2016.
Both Lucy’s and Jane’s books are available via Amazon.
