Nicola graduated from the prestigious Cambridge School of Art MA with a distinction and her first three authored picture books – The Strongest Mum, Vera Jewel is Late for School, and Terry and the Brilliant Book were all published by Macmillan within a year. Before all that, she had a former life as a television producer at the BBC and Channel 4. She lives in London with her partner and two children, and when she isn’t drawing and writing, stencilling and cutting up paper, you’ll find her trying to decide which idea to work on next.
