A native of San Antonio, Dr. Lucy Griffith now lives on a ranch beside the Guadalupe River near Comfort. She has been a lover of wild spaces since she was a young child, having memorable escapades at the renowned Esperanza, Hillingdon and Gallagher ranches. Once her family acquired a property on the Guadalupe River, that love grew. Her father was her first teacher, and as she walked the pastures with him, she learned about the joys of attachment to a particular place. His stewardship of the ranch was her primer; their walks and chores, a daily tutorial.
Lucy has been a licensed psychologist and has worked extensively in the mental health field as well as serving as a school principal and a Special Education teacher. Her experiences as a therapist inform and inspire her work.
Lucy is also a Certified Texas Master Naturalist and a regular contributor to the Texas Star, an award-winning publication of the Hill Country Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists. She writes with a perceptive eye and a finely-tuned ear, coupled with a grace and understanding that makes us more aware of the world around us, whether we live in the country or in the middle of a city.
Her latest collection, We Make a Tiny Herd, is available through our online shop.
