Jenny Nimmo - Author

About the Author

Jenny Nimmo lives in a converted watermill in Wales.  Her husband, David Wynn Millward, is a painter and print-maker, and all three of her children speak Welsh fluently.  She finds Wales, a land of legends, a very inspiring place to live.

For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books.  At boarding school, reading was her way to overcome loneliness or boredom.  However, she is aware that not everyone finds reading comes easily, and feels passionately that every child should have all the help they need, and access to as many books as they want.
