Writing stories for as long as she’s been able to read them, Lucy Adlington is now a successful author, presenter and keen collector of vintage and antique costume. She writes history-inspired fiction for teens and fascinating social history books. She also runs the History Wardrobe, an organisation which gives hugely sought after dress history talks across the UK.
Lucy's books have been longlisted for the CLIP Carnegie Medal and shortlisted for many other book awards including the Manchester Book Prize, the Leeds Book Prize and the Rotherham Book Award. She is also published in the States, most recently by Candlewick, and translated into many languages.
