Hi, I'm Nicola.

I grew up in Monkstown, Co. Dublin and studied English at Trinity College, Dublin and at Oxford. I worked in publishing for several years before writing my first book The Out of Office Girl.

Since then I've written four more books - If I Could Turn Back Time and Girls on Tour for adults, and Love and Other Man-Made Disasters and Lola Offline which are YA romances.

These days, reading comes much more easily to me than writing. I have to have a book on the go at all times. I mostly read on my Kindle but I also love to use the library (when there's not a pandemic on).

There are so many wonderful privileges - but I think the best thing ever is hearing from a reader that your book brought them pleasure. I will never get tired of that.

Also, if ever anyone is mean or bitchy to you, it's actually great because you can put them in a book.(less)

I have been reading so much lately – gulping books down on my Kindle, sometimes one or two a week. I read constantly during lockdown, and now continue to do so during this new period, no longer a burning inferno but a bleak plateau stretching on to a blurry trackless infinity (can you tell I’m feeling optimistic today).





At the start of the pandemic, when I was in a constant state of panic and stres

“Life seems sometimes like nothing more than a series of losses, from beginning to end. That's the given. How you respond to those losses, what you make of what's left, that's the part you have to make up as you go.”
