About Lucy Day

Hi there! I’m Lucy Day. Born and raised in South Carolina, I love sweet tea, summer nights, and big-hearted love stories. I started writing in college and finished my first novel after leaving my job at a web comic in St. Louis. I’m a bird nerd who can’t live without strong coffee and wide open spaces—and of course, a stack of good books. When I’m not writing a new love story, you can find me out walking in the woods, dreaming up my next adventure.

I’m a big fan of sassy, lovable heroines, irresistible heroes, and happy-ever-afters. I grew up watching romantic comedies and reading romances with feisty ladies who weren’t afraid to chase what they wanted. Some of my favorite writers are Carrie Fisher, Mary Oliver, Jane Austen, Ashley Poston, and Abby Jimenez. And why do I write romance? Because I think everyone can have a happy-ever-after—and life is so much better when we lift each other up.

Jasmine Falls Love Stories is my debut series, and I’m thrilled and humbled that my first novel, The Almost Lovebirds, won the Independent Publishers (IPPY) Silver medal for romance. This series is everything that I love: a small-town full of hilarious characters, second chances, dream-chasers, enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity, and love in unexpected places.

You can find me over on Instagram, where I share book news, the occasional travel photo or cute dog, and sneak peeks into my latest projects.

About Jasmine Falls

Jasmine Falls is a fictional town set in the lowcountry of South Carolina. As a teen, Lucy spent her summers in that part of the state, where she fell in love with the landscape and the people. It’s a place with warm summer breezes, lots of fireflies, and hot days that leave you looking for the nearest swimming hole.

Jasmine Falls is a mash-up of a few towns that Lucy visited over the years, but the Congaree National Park is very real. It’s a unique place that is a character all its own, serenely beautiful and full of surprises—just like the small towns around it.

And that warbler in The Almost Lovebirds? It’s real, too. And still a bit of a mystery.
