  • 5 stars across 32 books
Stella graduated with a law degree, but writing was always her passion. Before long, she left her 'sensible' job and plunged into the world of publishing. She has now written over 30 books. As the daughter of Greek immigrants, Stella was steeped in Greek mythology, and she uses her love of Greece in her books. Nick Roberts was born in Colwyn Bay, North Wales, and moved to Somerset when he was five years old. He turned the art studio at his school into his second home, and qualified with a BA Hons in graphic design from Bristol Polytechnic in 1986. His most memorable project has been the branding of the European Youth Olympics in Bath. Nick moved back to Somerset to set up a home studio in 2007.
