Jenny Millward. Jenny Nimmo has always loved reading and writing. She read all the books in the junior school library and had to beg permission to join the senior school library when she was only nine.

She nows lives in a remote part of Wales and is probably best known for the Award winning Snow Spider Trilogy, stories that combine Welsh myth, the supernatural and family conflict.
