Lucy Jones

Author, journalist, moth-enthusiast

Lucy Jones is a writer, journalist and author.

Her novel, Losing Eden: Why Our Minds Need the Wild (Allen Lane), is an inquiry into how and why connection with nature affects our mental health and a rallying cry for a wilder way of life.

She previously worked at NME and the Daily Telegraph, and her journalism on culture, science and nature has been published in BBC Earth, BBC Wildlife, The Sunday Times, the Guardian and the New Statesman. Her first book, Foxes Unearthed, was celebrated for its ‘brave, bold and honest’ (Chris Packham) account of our relationship with the fox.
