Lucy Cooper

Lucy Cooper is a writer with a love of folklore, fairy tales and mythology. She grew up in the wilds of West Penwith.

She is the author of the latest title in the best-selling xxlement Encyclopedia series, The Element Encyclopedia of Fairies (HarperCollins, 2014).

Established in 2010, Penzance Literary Festival has grown into one of the UK's favourite festivals for authors and visitors.
