Sally Nicoll is a former journalist, broadcaster and advertising copywriter. Her first book, BETS AND THE CITY, a comedy memoir of her career as a professional spread better, was a surprise bestseller.

She lives in London’s Primrose Hill with her dog – the true hero of BETS AND THE CITY – who has not yet forgiven her for featuring an Irish Setter called Caesar in her fiction debut, a high stakes political thriller: THE POWER BEHIND THE THRONE.

Like one of the VERY bad guys in her new book, Sally is a devout supporter of Tottenham Hotspur; she has been advised to keep this quiet, for fear of inhibiting sales from those who follow the other team in North London… but is prepared to take the risk.
