About the author (1985)

David Nicholls was born in 1966 in Eastleigh, Hampshire. Nicholls studied English Literature and Drama at the University of Bristol. When he graduated he won a scholarship to study at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York. David appeared in plays at the Battersea Arts Centre, the Finborough, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Birmingham Rep, and had a three year stint at the Royal National Theatre, understudying and playing small parts. During this period David took a job at BBC Radio Drama as a script reader/researcher and he developed an adaptation of Sam Shepard's stage-play Simpatico with the director Matthew Warchus. He also wrote his first original script, Waiting, which was later optioned by the BBC. Simpatico was turned into a feature film in 1999 which allowed David to start writing full-time. I Saw You won best single play at the annual BANFF television festival. He has been twice nominated for BAFTA awards. David's first novel, Starter for 10 (Hodder, July 2004) was featured on the first Richard and Judy Book Club. He has also written The Understudy (Hodder, March 2005) and One Day (Hodder, June 2009). David lives in North London with his partner Hannah and two children.
