Lucy lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She grew up in Boston and attended Williams College in the Berkshires before spending many years in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. 

After five years editing books, pitching story ideas and getting LOTS of coffee at Alloy Entertainment, Lucy sold her debut novel in a two book deal to HarperTeen. DREAMOLOGY was released in 2016, followed by LITERALLY a year later. At Alloy, Keating fell in love with story development, the art of high-concept, and creating properties with a great hook. In both her books she enjoys creating funny characters, strange scenarios, and playing with big romantic tropes: What if you met the boy of your dreams? What if you were a character in a romance novel? 

In addition to writing books, Lucy spent several years working in narrative mobile gaming, where she honed her skills on quick story pacing, big cliff hangers, and the more romance the better!

When she's not writing, Lucy can usually be found taking photographs, inventing new flavors of ice cream, or having what she feels are perfectly acceptable conversations with her dog, Ernie.
