Lois Nicholls was born in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. She grew up in Howick, a little country town which has auspiciously positioned itself as ‘The Hub of the Midlands’.
She never imagined living in Australia and was hopelessly unprepared when she and her husband left the comfortable bosom of family and friends to emigrate Down Under in 1997. Home is now Brisbane, Australia where she lives with husband, three children, and cat, Dexter!
When she’s not writing, Lois enjoys reading, gardening, refurbishing old furniture, cooking, walking, travel and unearthing quirky treasures in junk shops.
