A representative of the Academy told the Herald: “Our S3 pupils were fascinated by the interesting snippets of information Nicola told them about the teenage brain before she went on to speak about her latest novels “Fleshmarket” and “Wasted.”

“Our 3 S2 classes are taking part in the Grampian Children’s Book Award project and Nicola’s book “Wasted” is one of the six books up for the prize.

“She had the pupils engrossed as she spoke about the plot and how when writing the author can follow many different storylines, often by the “toss of a coin”.

“Our pupils asked many questions and then many bought signed copies of her books.

“The event was mostly funded by the Scottish Book Trust who support the majority of author visits to the Academy and to whom we are very grateful to.”

Nicola studied Classics and Philosophy at Cambridge University before becoming an English teacher for 16 years. She then changed direction to become a full time writer.
