    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. Based on her ex­pe­ri­ences in tour­ing world­wide with George's Se­cret Key and giv­ing talks on physics and as­tron­omy to chil­dren, her lec­ture high­lighted the need to en­gage chil­dren in sci­ence at an early age.A few months later, she was a re­cip­i­ent of a Sapio Prize—an Ital­ian award ded­i­cated to in­no­v­a­tive re­searchers—for pop­u­lar­iz­ing sci­ence worldwide. In 2010, Ari­zona State Uni­ver­sityap­pointed Hawk­ing writer-in-res­i­dence of its 2011 Ori­gins Project. In 2013, Hawk­ing spoke at the Brain­STEM: Your Fu­ture is Now fes­ti­val at the Perime­ter In­sti­tute for The­o­ret­i­cal Physics in Wa­ter­loo, On­tario, Canada. In March 2017, Hawk­ing was in­vited to speak at the Emi­rates Air­line Fes­ti­val in Dubai. In June, Hawk­ing was rec­og­nized at the Am­s­ter­dam NewsEd­u­ca­tional Foun­da­tion, which ho­n­oured...

    Hawk­ing is vice pres­i­dent of the Na­tional Star Col­lege, an in­sti­tu­tion ded­i­cated to al­low­ing peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties to re­al­ize their po­ten­tial through per­son­al­ized learn­ing, tran­si­tion and lifestyle services, a foun­da­tion which pro­vides care and ed­u­ca­tion for young adults with com­plex and mul­ti­ple dis­abil­i­ties. She is also a trustee of the Autism Re­search Trust.

    Hawk­ing mar­ried Alex Macken­zie Smith in 1998. The cou­ple di­vorced in 2004. She has a son William (b. 1997). Di­ag­nosed with autism, he has been an in­spi­ra­tion to her in her sup­port for peo­ple on the autis­tic spec­trum.
