Lucy Aykroyd, a life enhancing caregiver and end-of-life doula, raised a large family in Aberdeenshire. She paints, pots and prints, practices yoga and travels about with a massage couch. Passionate about the land and the environment, she lives out her wilderness training, disappears for hours into her garden and springs to life with her dogs on the shoreline near her East Lothian home. Lucy celebrates her own ageing and helps others to make the most of theirs with a lightness of touch, a compassionate heart and a good smattering of humour.
This is her first independent publication. Her short stories have been included in some anthologies by The Huntly Writers.
