Lucy Gray

Lucy Gray has had many jobs and experiences which she has always tried putting to good use in fiction. After years as a waitress and finally studying Film and European Literature at Dartmouth College as an extension student at the University of New Hampshire who gave her a Bachelor’s Degree, she then began her career as an award winning talk show host at WNHV, an ABC station, a book reviewer for The Real Paper and Vermont Public Radio where she also directed radio plays. She moved west and worked in various jobs in the movie business before writing as a journalist about movie people for Elle, Interview and many other magazines. When her first son went to preschool she decided to expand her professional horizons again and became a photographer. Her son was a reluctant model and her second son was, too. He was a much better wrangler, making everyone smile. Both sons are grown now and are thriving in Brooklyn. Lucy’s photographs have won awards and been in many periodicals including “The New York Times,” “The Independent on Sunday,” and “Brick." She did an artist’s rendition of Nathanael West’s The Day of the Locust and she worked for fifteen years on Balancing Acts: Three Prima Ballerinas Becoming Mothers. One of her photographic subjects, the actress Tilda Swinton, narrated Lucy’s children’s film, Genevieve Goes Boating, which was shown at schools throughout India for a year and played at Fort Mason in San Francisco for three years. She is deeply attached to San Francisco where she has resided with her husband since 1981. You can email her at
