Lucinda Hawksley’s biography of Princess Louise, the rebellious daughter of Queen Victoria, grew out of her previous biographies of the artists Lizzie Siddal and Katey Perugini (née Dickens) - she was intrigued to discover more about this artistic princess who kept appearing in her research. Lucinda's other books include March, Women, March: Voices of the Women’s Movement, 50 British Artists You Should Know and What Makes Great Art. Lucinda is a regular speaker at the National Portrait Gallery. She is also a lecturer in literature and art history, an award-winning travel writer and a patron of both the Charles Dickens Museum in London and of the Norwegian Pickwick Club.
