Nicky Singer

Nicky Singer has worked in publishing, the arts and television. She co-founded, and for ten years co-directed, Performing Arts Labs a charity dedicated to training writers for stage, screen and opera. Her own writing career began when she was 15 years old with lyrics for a cantata, Jonah and the Whale. Since then she has written four adult novels and two books of non-fiction. Her first novel for children, Feather Boy won the Blue Peter 'Book I Couldn't Put Down Award' and the overall Blue Peter 'Book of the Year' Award. The book is now published in 18 countries and the TV adaptation has just been nominated for two BAFTA awards. Nicky's second book for young people, Doll, was shortlisted for the Booktrust Teenage Prize and her new book The Innocent's
Story is her gritty and challenging response to 9/11.
