Meet the Author

Lucie Ataya grew up in Tours, France where her passion for writing and her love for the English language were born.


She studied modern languages, took a random detour through Radford, Virginia in the US and moved to England to complete a Masters' Degree in Sociology at the University of Bristol. She now lives in London with her husband, their Cocker Spaniel Veer and their Burmese cat Leela.


A yogi at heart, Lucie practices yoga as a qualified Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher. For her day job, she works as a Product Manager in an Ad tech company. 


She's also an experienced BETA reader and editor, and a regular blog contributor for Kiingo: The Writing University.

When she's not writing, working or practising her Sun Salutations, she can be spotted walking with Veer, trialing independent coffee shops, or indulging in crafty projects.

Her first novel, No Pain, No Game, is a dystopian thriller, and was published in 2020.

Passing It Forward is a free non-fiction digital guide released in April 2021, aimed to help indie authors navigate the process of self-publishing and book promotion.

Her second fiction novel, The Dhawan Brothers, is due to release in 2022.

Lucie is also the co-founder of The Indie Writers Collective, an initiative dedicated to promoting Indie Authors and their work (Instagram: @the.indie.writers.collective).
