Lily Bailey is a model and writer. She became a journalist in London in 2012, editing a news site and writing features and fashion articles for local publications including the Richmond Magazine and the Kingston Magazine.
As a child and teenager, Lily suffered from severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). She kept her illness private, until the widespread misunderstanding of the disorder spurred her into action.
In 2014 she began campaigning for better awareness and understanding of OCD, and has tried to stop companies making products that trivialise the illness.
Her first book, Because We Are Bad (Canbury Press), published in May 2016, reveals her experience of OCD.
She lives in London with her dog, Rocky.
