Lucy Golden is an intensely private person: she is unwilling to publish her biographical details, considering the intimate revelations in her books to be more than adequate. She says, "My books and stories are extremely personal. They are drawn from the very deepest parts of my mind and if you don't know me after reading them, you never will." Her fiction is based both on her own experiences and those of friends; these people are not impossibly rich, nor are they cardboard cutouts. They are real people, with real families, real lives, real careers who all have a keen interest in sex which they have shared with the author. This populist element in her writing could explain why Lucy Golden has built up such a devoted following.
