Nicola Tapson’s writing journeying started at a young age – 10 to be precise. She was encouraged by her English teacher to write and illustrate a book which would later appear in the school library. This experience planted a seed of passion for writing. In 2009, she wrote a poem which would be featured in the anthology, Reminiscence, which was published by the Southern African Poetry Collection. She then went into hibernation. After trying her hand in many industries, the desire to weave a story started to swell up again and she created the Inquisitive Hedgehog in 2015. With this company, she aims to create children’s stories and become a curator of folklore from around the world.
She adores writing about adventures with a touch of love in each story. Currently she is working on an adventure story about a game ranger named Gideon.
