the adventures of
Lucinda Dumpling is an explorer, adventurer and code breaker. She is witty, colourful and has a deep love of nature. She talks to trees and butterflies and even gets excited by dirt! Lucinda loves to travel and she has many dreams of exploring and learning the history, mystery and culture of earth and beyond.
On one of her travels to a faraway land, Lucinda saw a gigantic saucepan half-buried in the centre of a village square. Upon closer inspection, she noticed words on the saucepan which glowed and fade, revealing secret codes on how to fly the saucepan. This changed her life forever.
Her adventures will indeed take you on a journey of magic, history, mystery, fun, humour and exploration of cultures and traditions around the world and beyond.
Storytelling has always been a part of Renee’s life.
Writing about Lucinda Dumpling takes her back to childhood adventures in nature. Spending time in the sea and dreaming of the mysteries of the world and beyond. Skygazing is one of her favourite things to do. She says, “It expands her imagination beyond.”
She collects books as if storing up for hard times, and often wonders if her neighbours dance to her shamanic drumming.
Some of her fondest memories are of exploring the woods and listening to the whispers of the trees, wondering what stories they may be telling each other all over the world.
Experiencing the wonderment of many cultures and traditions during her travels have enriched her life immensely.
She hopes that children and adults will enjoy and join Lucinda Dumpling on her many adventures and exploration of mystery, secret codes, dreams, cultures and the human connection. She says, “If you can see my dreams, it will look like The Adventures of Lucinda Dumpling.”
