Alex Nye is an award-winning children’s author. She grew up in Norfolk by the sea, but has lived in Scotland since 1995 where she finds much of her inspiration in Scottish history. At the age of 16 she won the W H Smith Young Writers’ Award out of 33,000 entrants, and has been writing ever since. Her first novel, CHILL, won the Royal Mail Award.
She divides her time between walking the dog, swimming, scribbling in notebooks in strange places, staring at people without meaning to, and tapping away on her laptop. She is also a Creative Writing Mentor with the Scottish Book Trust, and delivers candlelit workshops featuring live ghost stories to thrill her young readers. She studied at King’s College, London more years ago than she cares to remember.
