Nikola Scott was born in Germany and spent most of her adult life in England and America, where she worked as a crime editor for many years. Turning her back on blood-spattered paperback covers and dead bodies found in woods, she sat down at her dining room table one day to start her first novel and hasn’t stopped writing since.

Fed up with having to borrow a corner of the dining room table to write, she’s obsessed with Writing Shacks boards on Pinterest and noise-cancelling headphones, loves the fascinating underbellies of other people’s lives (‘How exactly did you feel when your parents gave the house to your brother?”) and is well-known – and feared – for digging up people’s family secrets at dinner parties.

Nikola lives in Frankfurt with her husband, two boys (and a dining room table). If you have any secrets to share or just fancy a chat, do get in touch at https://twitter.com/nikola_scott
