Author / Scriptwriter
Nigel Smith – A former journalist, busker, playwright and TV comedy producer, Nigel has worked with many of the UK’s middlest-sized names in showbusiness. He created and co-wrote the BBC One sitcom Doctors and Nurses. He wrote the highly acclaimed BBC Radio 4 series Vent, which is when his mum stopped talking to him. He’s half responsible for the popular BBC Radio 2 comedy Teenage Kicks. This time his kids stopped talking to him. In 2001 he suffered a serious brain illness which, frankly, he never stops banging on about. I Think There’s Something Wrong With Me was bought by Transworld in a six-figure pre-emptive two-book deal and published in 2007.
Nigel is married with three children and lives on the south coast with most of them. His first book for children, Nathalia Buttface and the Most Embarrassing Dad in the World, is published by HarperCollins in May 2014 and is the first in a hilarious new series.
