Lucy is a Chicago born, Dallas raised writer. She is a published fiction writer for Low Rider Magazine, The Show Scene Magazine , a blogger, poet and car show organizer, and co-founder of North Tejas Writers Workshops. 

Writing is just one way Bocanegra expresses her artistic side. She has exhibited at the Latino Cultural Center for Dia de Los Muertos and coordinated artistic exhibits for her daughter (who has been exhibiting her work since she was 13 yrs old) at the Bath House and Ice House. 

Mentoring and encouraging writers, visual artist and bloggers is something she loves. One of the latest challenges Bocanegra has taken on is original restorations of antique cars and custom auto upholstery.  This is a trade passed down from both her parents that she feels takes artistic skills.
