Lucy Hawking was born in England to scientist Stephen Hawking and author Jane Wilde Hawking. She has two brothers, Robert and Timothy Hawking, and was raised in Cambridge after a few years spent in Pasadena, California as a child. As a young adult, she played a significant role in tending to her father's deteriorating health caused by motor neurone disease. Hawking studied French and Russian at the University of Oxford. During university, she spent time in Moscow to focus on her Russian studies; after completing her degree, she went on to study international journalism at City, University of London. There, she realized that she did not want to make a career out of journalism, though found it to be good writing practice as well as also a practical way to get into the writing profession.
After university Hawking spent a bit of time working as a journalist. She wrote for New York magazine, the Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Times, the London Evening Standard, and The Guardian.She also worked as a radio journalist. Hawking aspired to become an author. Her first two novels were Jaded (2004) and Run for Your Life (2005) (also published as The Accidental Marathon). A few years after these books she transitioned to children's literature, and in 2007 she published George's Secret Key to the Universe, an adventure story about a small boy called George who finds a way to slip through a computer generated portal and travel around the solar system. This book was written with her father, Stephen Hawking, and his former Ph.D. student, Christophe Galfard. It has been translated into 38 languages and published in 43 countries. Four other books have been published in the series: George's Cosmic Treasure Hunt in 2009, George and the Bi...
In April 2008, Hawking participated in NASA’s 50th birthday lecture series, contributing a talk on children and science education.

In 2010, Arizona State Universityappointed Hawking writer-in-residence of its 2011 Origins Project.
