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. She now lives in a small village in Somerset just outside Bristol. website: http://nicola-skinner.com twitter: @skinnerwritesRead more Read less
