Nicole is not a geologist, botanist, archaeologist, marine scientist, historian or academic (although she does enjoy working and learning from them). She is someone who’s fascinated to find out and communicate new and incredible things about Australia.

Nicole lives in the Adelaide Hills with a cacophony of family and a menagerie of animals. This is the first book that she has written, illustrated and designed. Here’s her own website of work, and an Instagram link too.

Hardie Grant is the publisher of What’s Out There?
