Nicki Greenberg is a writer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. Her first books, The Digits series, were published when she was fifteen years old. She later spent ten years disguised as a lawyer, while maintaining a not-so-secret Other Life as a comics artist and children’s book author.
In 2008 Nicki’s innovative graphic adaptation of The Great Gatsby was selected as a White Raven at the Bologna Book Fair. She then went on to tackle Hamletin a lavish 425-page ‘staging on the page’. Hamlet was joint winner of the 2011 Children’s Book Council of Australia Picture Book of the Year award.
Inspired by her own young children, Nicki now dedicates most of her ink to books for younger readers. She has written and illustrated many well-loved picture books and novels and looks forward to making many more.
Nicki is a frequent presenter at schools, festivals and conferences, where her speaking style is described as passionate, engaging and full of energy.
