Who is Lucy Marfleet?
I am an author, encourager and educator. I think widely and try to tell the truth in imaginative ways.
I care deeply about family life, food, finding patterns and faith lived out through social justice. My husband Matthew and I have two children: Elizabeth (born 2007), known as Lily and Joseph (born 2010) and we live near Cambridge in England. I am currently working on a fiction manuscript which is academically informed.
I have degrees in Theology from Durham University and the International Baptist Theological Seminary (Biblical Studies). I am also a trained teacher and have worked in schools and prisons. My writing stems from a passion for the Old Testament and for those on the edges. I have been writing a personal blog at jamandgiraffes since 2006 and love writing and thinking about words and language.
Do ask me questions and come back and see how my writing project is progressing.
What are you working on now?
Several things! A couple of books, various blog posts and series and find me in the Association of Christian Writers’ Lent Book: New Life, coming out in time for Lent 2018.
