Author's Bio

Nicki Greenberg is a writer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. Her first picture books, The Digits series, were published when she was fifteen years old. She later spent ten years disguised as a lawyer, while maintaining a not-so-secret Other Life as a comics artist and children's book author. Nicki is the creator of the award-winning 'staged-on-the-page' adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet, and of the graphic adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Inspired by her own young children, Nicki has written and illustrated many delightful picture books for younger readers including The Naughtiest Reindeer series, Meerkat Choir, Teddy Took the Train, and Morris the Mole. In her Zelda Stitch novels, Nicki has come a step closer to realising her childhood dream of being a witch.
