Lucy understood the concept and produced a wonderful book that helps children see a funny side to maths. She responded to queries in a timely manner and communicated very well throughout the process. I would highly recommend her services.

As an upcoming author, I didn’t know much about bringing my first mini project to life. But, working with Lucy was excellent. She made feel so comfortable and secure. I recommend her, she’s easy to work with, communicative, (down to earth) creative, and conservative. I’m looking forward to working with her on my future projects !
