Nikki Smith's picture

Nikki Smith

Nikki Smith studied English Literature at Birmingham University before pursuing a career in finance, working in a variety of different companies including an investment bank and a trampoline park. She always had a passion for writing and in 2017 she had a 'now or never' moment and applied for a Curtis Brown Creative 3 month writing course which she absolutely loved. Later that year she had a short story published in the Writer's Forum Magazine, and submitted the opening chapters of her novel to a competition where she won the opportunity to be mentored by the author Amanda Reynolds. She lives near Guildford with her husband, two daughters and a very friendly Burmese cat called Saffi.

Nikki Smith recommends
Clickbait (2024)
L C North
"An utterly gripping thriller that explores the addictiveness of reality TV in today's society, and the lengths some people will go to in order to achieve fame. Whip-smart and incisive, I couldn't put this book down."
Moral Injuries (2024)
Christie Watson
"Intelligent, propulsive and disturbing - I couldn't put it down. The ethical dilemmas at the centre of the book will have readers asking themselves, again and again, what would I do?"
Leave No Trace (2024)
(Kat and Lock, book 2)
Jo Callaghan
"As brilliantly plotted and innovative as In The Blink Of An Eye, AIDE Lock & DCS Frank are back in Leave No Trace. This time attempting to solve horrific murders in the dead of winter; the story chilled me to the bone and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Callaghan writes with such intelligence; interspersing humour with moments of utter heartbreak."
