James Nicol is the author of the critically-acclaimed Apprentice Witch series. As a child he always checked wardrobes for hidden worlds and spent hours absorbed in novels or adventuring in the wood at the bottom of the garden. He lives in Yorkshire with his husband and daughter, and a black-and-white cockapoo called Bonnie.
