Her first book, I Choose Elena, was published in 2019 and has since been published in four territories and three languages. Her second book, My Body Keeps Your Secrets, will be published in September 2021.
My Body Keeps Your Secrets, Lucia’s first full length book published in September 2021, examines the secrets a body keeps, from gender identity, puberty and menstruation to sexual pleasure; to pregnancy or its absence; and to darker secrets of abuse, invasion or violation. My Body Keeps Your Secrets was awarded the Somerset Maugham Prize in 2022.
In her forthcoming book, Witness, Lucia follows the 2021 Maxwell trial with a focus on the survivors at the centre of this case who have been let down again and again, by abusers, by people who were supposed to protect them, by courts who supposedly delivered them justice and by the media who failed to believe them. Witness is due to be published in early 2024.
