Lucy Carmel Hibbett was born and raised just outside of Dublin, Ireland. As a child, Lucy’s home was crammed to the rafters with books, love, and laughter. She credits her parents with nurturing her passion for reading and storytelling from an early age. Lucy now lives in County Kildare with her husband, their two little girls, and her dogs. She spends her time writing, reading, and protecting the world from the trail of mischief and mayhem left behind by her daughters. Her favourite authors include Cassandra Clare, Maeve Binchy, Trudi Canavan, Jaymin Eve, Oscar Wilde, Kazuo Ishiguru, and Elise Kova. The Shadow Children, Lucy’s debut YA fantasy series The Demon-Born Trilogy began release in November of 2016. Her second series, Wicked Witches, began release in January 2017, and her third series, Poison Courts, is slated to be released late 2017.
