Agent: Sallyanne Sweeney

Nicola is an award-winning, Irish children’s book illustrator and author. Jasper & Scruff, her first fiction series as author and illustrator, was one of The Guardian books of the month… “Adorable illustrations, snappy dialogue and outrageous puns make it the cat’s pyjamas for bedtime reading.” Her picture book, A Dublin Fairytale won the Irish Literacy Association award and was awarded a White Raven. It was Hodges Figgis’s best-selling children’s book of the decade. She also illustrated the Fizzy series by acclaimed writer and former Irish children’s laureate, Sarah Crossan. When she’s not at her desk drawing or writing, she loves nothing more than sitting in a coffee shop window and sketching passersby for her popular People of Bristol series. Nicola lives in Bristol with her partner and their black and white cat Odysseus. She is LGBTQ+
