Nicola Davies is a zoologist and children's author who has studied geese, bats, humpbacked whales, blue whales and sperm whales in the wild.
She has written more than 30 books, non fiction and fiction, for a wide range of ages, but all her books are rooted in her love for the natural world. Her publications include a book about the natural history of poo, a guide to climate change, a post apocalyptic novel for teenagers, a series of novels about an imaginary city farm and a book of poetry about nature. Her work has been published in more than 15 different languages, and has won prizes in the UK, US, France, Germany and Italy.
Nicola has twenty years of experience of running workshops for children and adults, from reception to post graduate degree level. She was senior lecturer in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University for six years until 2008. Her workshops encourage students to combine learning about nature with creative writing, weaving facts and information into lyrical, poetic language.
Nicola lives in Abergavenny, but comes from a family whose roots are in the Gower, as miners, steelworkers, small holders and singers.
