Nicki Kelland learnt to read before she went to school and learnt to speed read at the age of five. As a result she grew up reading Alan Garner, Tolkien, Margery Allingham and Agatha Christie. She moved on to Robin Jarvis, Phil Rickman, Stephen King and Lee Child, although her favourite book will always be one of the first ever detective novels: The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. She soon began writing her own stories and her great ambition is to write a thrilling mystery.
By day Nicki works in Learning & Development and spends her spare time writing, which has resulted in her being awarded the Runner Up Prize in the Swansea and District Writers Circle 2015.
Nicki is a native of the West Midlands and now lives in Loudwater in Buckinghamshire, the home of Midsomer Murders.
