Lucas grew up in Newcastle, Australia on a healthy diet of anime, Nickelodeon, Goosebumps and Animorphs. When he’s not in his home office editing trailers and TV shows, he can usually be found in a cafĂ© with his laptop, crafting meticulously built worlds with a Hans Zimmer score blaring in his headphones. He has a soft spot for Europe, particularly his ancestral home in the Greek islands, where he likes to visit as much as possible.

Music is his biggest inspiration, with many of his characters and scenes being birthed from tracks that send his imagination into overdrive. He often builds soundtracks for his books like they’re movies, which allows him to visualise his ideas more cinematically. Becoming a writer has been his dream since he was ten years old when a very silly short story left his entire year four class in stitches. Wellsville is his first novel.
