About the Author
Lucy Edge worked in advertising as a strategist for nearly twenty years. Her campaigns for Marks & Spencer, Yellow Pages and Johnnie Walker were awarded the top prizes in the business and she built a reputation for creative solutions to her clients' business problems, a talent that was rewarded with board positions at three top ten agencies. One day she decided to give it all up in favour of a quest for life's deeper meaning in the five star ashrams, utopian villages and yoga schools of India. Yoga School Dropout (published by Ebury), her highly acclaimed account of this journey, records her encounters with Gucci clad gurus, hugging mothers and swoony swamis as she searches, ever more desperately, for mystic Indians, Tantric bliss and a boyfriend. Named by The Independent as one of their books of the year, and a consistent bestseller on Amazon's Yoga and Travel Writing rankings, Yoga School Dropout has become a traveller's classic - inspiring hundreds of disenchanted workers to follow her yoga trail around India in search of a more meaningful life. Lucy's second book picks up where Yoga School Dropout left off. She's met her man (after all that searching in India he turned out to live ten minutes walk from her London flat) and they decide to buy a Norfolk farmhouse and try for a family. The Handbag and Wellies Yoga Club is a moving, heart warming and witty story of her quest for love, babies and friendship in the lotus position. Lucy is working on her third book and contributes to a wide variety of newspapers, books and magazines including Yoga Journal, Tatler, The Daily Express, Body & Soul Escapes and BA's High Life magazine.
