Welcome to My World
My name is Lucy Mercer. I’m a writer, a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend, in no particular order. Or maybe that is a particular order because words are always with me, a phrase or sentence or paragraph continually working itself out in my brain’s endless stream of prose.
A Cook and Her Books is my space to share what I love to talk about: gardening and food, with a side of creativity and connection. Follow me here and on Facebook and Instagram for posts about what’s growing, what’s cooking and what’s going on.
