Nikki Tate was born in Birmingham, England, but spent her childhood roaming the globe. She is the author of more than two dozen books ranging from picture books to teen fiction. Her non-fiction titles cover subjects from trees to birthdays to farming. Nikki has always enjoyed both writing and telling stories, as well as camping, kayaking, climbing and horseback riding. She has worked as a regular book reviewer on CBC Radio’s All Points West, as a professional storyteller, a farmer, a publicist, and for many years was a bookseller at the wonderful independent bookstore, Bolen Books in Victoria, BC. Nikki’s home base is on Vancouver Island, but she loves to travel, particularly if she can find some rock or ice to climb or an ocean to sail. Follow her adventures here.
