Nikki Smith studied English Literature at Birmingham University, before pursuing a career in finance. Following a ‘now or never’ moment, she applied for a Curtis Brown Creative course where she started writing her debut novel, All In Her Head which was longlisted for the Guardian’s ‘Not The Booker’ prize and was described by Lesley Kara as ‘A clever and emotionally charged debut,’ and TM Logan as ‘Brilliantly written with plenty of surprises along the way.’
She lives near Guildford with her husband and two daughters and a cat called Saffi who thinks she’s a dog. Her second novel, Look What You Made Me Do will be published in hardback by Orion on 1 April 2021.
