Author Bio
Nicola Cornick
For the first 18 years of her life Nicola lived in Yorkshire, within a stone's throw of the moors that had
inspired the Brontë sisters to write Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. One of her grandfathers was a 
poet, and her family contained teachers and avid readers who filled the house with books. With such a

She moved to Somerset and lived for seven years in a cottage haunted by the ghost of a cavalier.Nicola
met her future husband while she was at university, although it took her four years to realize that he was
