Sally Nicholls

Sally Nicholls was born in Stockton-on-Tees and as a child would wander the school playground at break times and make up stories in her head.  After travelling the world, she realised she’d soon need an actual job and so studied Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University. It was there that she wrote Ways to Live Forever, which won a raft of awards including the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.
