She received degrees in philosophy and sociology from Sarajevo University, and lived in Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia and the Czechoslovakian Republic before leaving the region during the Balkan wars in Croatia and Bosnia. In 1992 she arrived, with her young family, as a refugee in Australia. Lukić spoke no upon her arrival, but she mastered the language following a period of studying and working.
In recent years she started to write again, now in.
Her poems have appeared in international literary journals, such as Gangway, SubtleTea, and Versal. In 2005 she was guest editor of Gangway #36 - Home and Homecoming.
Laurie Duggan wrote about her poetry: "these poems written in their author"s second language have a certainty about them that belies the difficulties Lukić must have encountered at all stages of her writing life. They are tough, tender, resilient.
lieutenant is so much more than a great pity that her first book in should also be her last." Lukić was also a quantitative sociologist whose collaborative work on immigrant women was published in 2001, in the collection edited by Rita James Simon titled "Immigrant women" and also in Gender Studies.
