About the Author

Helen Nicoll

Helen Nicoll was born in Natland, Westmorland, in 1937. She was educated at schools in Bristol, Devon and London. Helen Nicoll married Robert Kime in 1970 and they had one daughter and one son.

Helen Nicoll was a television producer with the BBC for many years. It was here, as Producer of the children's educational series Watch, that she first met Jan Pienkowski. After working together for four years, they decided it was time to preserve their creativity in book form for future generations of children to enjoy. The result is the immensely popular Meg and Mog series.

In addition to the Meg and Mog series, Helen had a long and varied association with Puffin - as editor of the Junior Puffin magazine The Egg from 1977 - 1979, and as compiler of the popular children's poetry anthology Poems for Seven Year Olds and Under, illustrated by Michael Foreman. She owned and ran the audio company Cover to Cover for many years which produced the popular series of Puffin story tapes.

Helen lived in Marlborough, Wiltshire. She died on September 30, 2012.
