FullSizeRenderLucy Roeber is a writer and editor. Since childhood, she’s been an avid reader and has reviewed books for national papers and magazines. After gaining a First at York University in History and an MSc in English Literature at Edinburgh, she worked as an assistant editor at Prospect Magazine and opened their Paris office, before leaving to have her children. She worked as a story line consultant for the television production company, Knickerbockerglory, and has been a mentor and editor for Cornerstones Literary Consultancy for five years.

In 2006, she did an MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck College. She’s written two historical novels that concentrate on women, power and the male gaze. Her agent, Araminta Whitley, is currently submitting her second novel to publishers and an adaptation for film is being discussed. The Posture Girl charts the rise of Emma Hamilton in London in the 1780s – from harlot to ambassador’s wife – through George Romney’s paintings of her.

Lucy Roeber lives in London with her three children. She has spent the last year writing erotic short stories and researching the subject of women and desire. She has started The Erotic Book Club at The Hearth, a working space for women in north-west London.
