I found my voice as a Writer almost 2 decades ago and write under my pen name ‘Lucy Smiles.’

As a young girl, I was given the nickname Lucy. While it didn’t seem significant then, it came full circle in my passion to serve, and heed the call of my voice.

When I turned 29, living in the vibrant city of Vancouver. British Colombia, Canada, life was moving at its usual pace. Amidst this energy, I found myself feeling a bit lost and disconnected from my true purpose, and at the same time I felt there was a transformation happening. 

One early morning, I found myself standing on the Burrard Street Bridge, overlooking the breathtaking cityscape as is the vast horizon of Mother Earth.  It was in that moment of solitude, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of city life, that something within me shifted.

I just couldn’t see the World, or my life, or my limiting beliefs and thoughts, the same.

In the quiet serenity of that bridge, I experienced a profound revelation. I realized that my journey was about more than just existing—it was about embracing my authentic self and sharing my light with the world. It was then that Lucy, my childhood nickname, took on a deeper significance. 

I realized that Lucy wasn't just a name; she was a symbol of positivity, resilience, and unwavering optimism. It was the child inside of me, and childlike spirit that remains untainted by the harsh realities of growing up.  A spirit that radiates with the innocence, wonder, and boundless curiosity of childhood, keeping the magic alive and vibrant.

In that transformative moment, I decided to channel my inner Lucy and embark on a new path—one guided by my higher self and dedicated to inspiring others.  I began to write, pouring my heart and soul into words that resonated with hope, encouragement, and empowerment.  


Lucy Smiles was born—a Voice and Conduit beacon of light in a world that sometimes feels dim. Not just Lucy’s voice, but our collective inner knowing that deserves to come out.

Since that defining moment on the Burrard Street Bridge, Lucy Smiles has become more than just a pen name; it's a representation of the person I strive to be every day.  Through my writing, I aim to uplift and inspire others to embrace their true selves, pursue their dreams, and spread positivity wherever they go.


So, whenever you see the name ‘Lucy Smiles’, know that it's not just a name—it's a reminder to keep smiling, keep believing, and keep shining your light, no matter what challenges life may bring.
