Nicola was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to a German mother and an English father. After an idyllic early childhood spent on beaches and reading comics, she moved to England aged eight to attend a series of boarding schools where she was often told off for reading after lights out. As a journalist and copywriter, Nicola wrote for tabloids, broadsheets, charities and women's magazines, before starting her first children's novel, 'Bloom'. Her books have been The Times Children's Books of the Week, the Guardian, the Daily Mail, the Statesman and Bookseller picks for the month, and nominated for the Blue Peter, Branford Boase and Carnegie book awards. Bloom was a Guardian Book of the Year. She lives in a small village which thinks it's in Somerset but is technically in Bristol. website: http://nicola-skinner.com twitter: @skinnerwritesRead more Read less
