A dandelion being blown by her young daughter gave Nicola the idea for her first book, Bloom. As a freelance journalist and copywriter, Nicola has written for the Guardian, The Pool, The National Trust, and many national magazines. One of her features on language led to a guest appearance on Michael Rosen’s Radio 4 programme, Word of Mouth. She lives in Bristol with her family.
Bloom was published in hardback by HarperCollins Children’s Books in April 2019, followed by the paperback edition on March 5th, 2020. Her second stand-alone middle grade novel is entitled Storm and is going to published on April 2nd, 2020, by HarperCollins Children’s Books.
