Lucy Falcone was a serious couch potato growing up. Her love of watching television inspired a dream to become a television and screen writer. Lucy’s first job was writing for CTV’s The Littlest Hobo. After moving to Los Angeles, she wrote for Nickelodeon’s hugely popular series, Are You Afraid of the Dark. Lucy also started a production company, Northwind Productions, and produced a situation comedy pilot titled Choir Practice starring Susan Anton and Elaina Reed Hall.
In 2003 Lucy turned her hand to writing novels. Her middle-grade supernatural thrillers include The Mysterious Mummer, Walking with the Dead, The Devil, The Banshee and Me, and The Midnight Curse. These four novels have garnered nine nominations, four wins, and two Honour nods. Lucy has also created a comedic, kid-detective series The Ghost and Max Monroe. Lucy’s debut picture book, I Didn’t Stand Up, (inspired by the poem First They Came… by Martin Niemoller) won the 2019 Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario Children’s Literature Award. The Librarian’s Stories is her second, emotionally resonant picture book.
