Lucy Christopher - winner in 2010 with Stolen
Sixteen year old Gemma is kidnapped from Bangkok airport and taken to the Australian Outback. Ty, her captor, is no stereotype. He is young, fit and completely gorgeous. This new life in the wilderness has been years in the planning. He loves only her, wants only her. Under the hot glare of the Australian sun, cut off from the world outside, can the force of his love make Gemma love him back?
The story takes the form of a letter, written by Gemma to Ty, reflecting on those strange and disturbing months in the outback. Months when the lines between love and obsession, and love and dependency, blur until they don't exist - almost.
Lucy was born in Wales but grew up in Australia, living in Melbourne from age 9 until the end of her Undergraduate
Stolen was Lucy's first published book. The first book she wrote was originally called The Long Flight which became Flyaway, her second published novel with Chicken House. Lucy's third novel, published in 2013, is The Killing Woods.
