"An inspiring, focussed read about languages, life, storytelling, hope and a genuine, resourceful humanity. . . Writing from Scotland, we would say that 9 Wonder Words is a kist o riches - a treasure chest of insights and experiences. That this is a dram of a book - a pick-me-up for struggling humans. That it is a minding in its thoughtful reflections and its earnest or promise of coping. That it is a handsel - a gift freely given with an inexhaustible potential to be freely handed onwards; a makar's wark - something made or crafted by a storyteller and poet, giving creative delight as well as wisdom. This truly a book to be savoured and shared round, a bit like Robert Burns' cup of kindness for auld lang syne. - Donald Smith, Director, Traditional Arts and Culture Scotland

Lucy Turner is an international civil servant who has lived and worked on 5 continents over 14 years with the United Nations.
Lucy is passionate about the role of voice in changing lives and nations. She observed that when people can speak and be heard in their own voices and languages, they tend to get the resources and respect they need to thrive.
After discovering a scientific basis for this power of words, Lucy committed to helping the United Nations to listen to people often known as ‘poor’ and ‘lacking capacity.' Lucy envisages an international system that asks, listens, and responds to the needs, desires, and ideas of people who are often overlooked and left behind through policies and projects based on their practical experience and indigenous wisdom.
Through this work, Lucy discovered the power of words to change lives and nations. An award-winning writer and sell-out speaker, Lucy shares life-improving ideas from around the world through fun stories and fascinating ‘untranslatable’ words from ancient and modern languages.
