About me

I’ve always been a story teller, but nowadays I like to see myself as a writer.

A little background for the ones among you who like to know things about the writer they read.

I’m an avid reader and writer. Love my dog and baking. If I need to unwind you can find me outside walking the dog, or inside twisted into a pretzel while doing yoga, or I might be trying to bake a multi-layer cake. You’ve got to love those cakes!

My favourite genres are most definitely all of them. I hate it when people try to stick me in a box, so I do my best not to fit in any and yet I feel at home in all.

What do I write? Romance, Fairy Tales with a twist, horror, sci-fy, and fantasy. You see? I told you so, not just one genre for me, I like to write it all, except YA. For some reason I haven’t gotten much love for that, or dystopian novels.

That’s me in a nutshell, if you follow my blog, you’ll come to know me better over the course of time, no doubt.

  1. Hey thanks for the follow. Feel free to share your thoughts and comments on anything I have posted. I am on a journey, I would love the company. Peace~David

  2. Buahahaha, be careful Lucy, you’re starting to box yourself in. You went from all genres to, two less then all genres. The box is slowly closing around you….. Moowhoo- hahahaha.

    I’m similar. I’m not just a one genre person either. I like Sci-fi, Fantasy, Romance, Crime Mystery, historical, Western, Action adventure, Dystopian, utopian (teehee), Time Travel (yeah that’s not a genre), steam punk, cyber punks, punks in general (hmm). If the story has suspense, plots, subplots, character development, relationship struggles, inspiring theme, twists and turns my emotions into Swiss Cheese- I’m good. How bout you?

    • Hahaha, you’ve got me there! πŸ™‚ But I can tell you my current work in progress is safely in the horror corner. Okay, they will take their clothes off, but it’s still supposed to be creepy. By the by, I luv Swiss cheeses, Nom!
      Which would push me into a four genre kind of woman, since I’ve already published a sci-fi diptych (to be found in Isotropic Fiction mag. Issue #3.) And let’s not forget about my zombie flash in the Quick Bite of Flesh anthology. πŸ™‚

    • That shouldn’t have been that hard πŸ™‚ I’m all over the place and not even hide in a small corner.
      Glad to see you here following me now, at least my place is a post as I wish zone. And you know what? Readers seem to like my musings and do not complain about the form it is delivered in. πŸ™‚

      • Hi Lucy,

        Piglet only knew you as luckyme or the cute little mouse. I had to beat up Lew for your real name so I could find you. Hey ho, water under the bridge.


      • Then start musing too, I find it really easy and somehow it frees my mind to write proper fiction afterwards. πŸ™‚ Don’t let what others think hold you back of what you want to do. Not even the threat of stripping of a ‘title’. πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Lucy,

    I happened to drop by your site with the understanding that you do book reviews for self-pub authors. You were recommended by another reviewer who has already reviewed my fiction novel which is in the paranormal/horror/thriller space. Please share your email id so that we can discuss a bit more in detail if you are interested in reviewing.

    • Hi Hemanth,
      Thanks for searching me out and thanks to the mysterious other reviewer who recommended me.
      You can email me at info(at)lucypireel.com to discuss specifics.

  4. “… twisted into a pretzel while doing yoga!”
    I always admire (and envy) people who can bend their bodies into many shapes, while at the same time enjoy doing it. I wonder how they can keep their calm. I would have freaked out if I felt my toes touching the back of my head! πŸ˜€

  5. I also am a dog lover. I grew up with lab/retrievers and, as an adult I am now the owner of a brindle lab/retriever guide dog called Trigger. My literary tastes are broad ranging from detective stories to science fiction. I look forward to reading more of your posts, Kevin

    • Hi Kevin, thanks for stopping by, reading and signing up as a follower. πŸ™‚ How did you get to be the owner of a guide dog? Which is the sci-fi book you like most? And have you read my sci-fi diptych in Isotropic Fiction #3?

      • Hi Lucy,

        I went blind as a very young child as a result of a blood clot on the brain. At school I was taught how to use a long white cane as a mobility aid. I have always loved dogs and knowing about the benefits which owning a guide dog can bring I applied for one as an adult. I was accepted and got my first guide dog, Nixon (no jokes about Watergate please)! I am now on my fourth dog, Trigger. I enjoyed H G Wells The Time Machine together with War Of The Worlds. Dick’s Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep is also one of my favourites. I must confess to not having read any of your work but I will certainly check it out. Kind regards, Kevin

      • Hi Kevin,
        Wow, how great you can still read and enjoy blogs. Do you have it set up for speech? Do Androids Dream is one of my fav books too! What do you think of Bladerunner?

      • Hi Lucy,

        I have Jaws software on my computer which converts text into speech and braille, basically reading the content of the screen to me. I also own an iPad and use Apple’s in-built screenreader, voice-over to use the device. I think that I accidentally mislead you. I purchased an audio download of Blade Runner which is based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep but I haven’t, in fact read the original (another book to add to my reading list)! I did buy a print copy of Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep and chatting to him about it the film seems to be somewhat different from the book. “We” by Zamyatin (not sure if I have rendered his name correctly) is worth checking out if you haven’t already done so. It is a disturbing distopian novel from which Orwell, arguably drew inspiration, Kevin

  6. Hi!

    I am looking to organize a blog tour from September 21 – October 4. I was hoping you could participate. If those dates don’t work for you, I would love for you to review my book any time!

    My memoir, Who Am I? How My Daughter Taught Me to Let Go and Live Again, was released on August 2, 2014. My book is about my journey into post-partum depression, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, stays in the psych ward, divorce, domestic violence, law school, how I managed to graduate from law school and a beautiful little girl who emerged from all of this chaos. There are two extremely important messages I would like to get across:

    One: Postpartum Depression still has a negative stigma attached to it. Women shouldn’t be afraid to seek treatment if they feel something is wrong.

    Two: Emotional abuse is a form of domestic violence and is not to be taken lightly. It took 10 strangers in a group therapy session in the hospital psych ward to tell me that I was in an emotionally abusive marriage and that I needed to get out for the sake of my daughter.

    I am looking for hosts to review my book, feature an author interview or just copy and paste my media kit. Please let me know if you are interested by replying to this e-mail. I REALLY appreciate this!
