We are a writing and illustrating team, best friends and mothers to our own spirited children, for whom we write. 


Our friendship began in Norway under the glow of the Northern Lights and this mystical phenomenon has formed a subtle undercurrent to all that we do.  Even our name "The Nimble Women" is derived from the Scottish name for the Aurora Borealis The Nimble Men. 


We are both avid readers and have written for pleasure for many years, sharing our stories and whimsy with only each other.  Finally we have realised that THIS is what we love, and that now is the time to put ourselves and our characters out into the big wide world.

So please check our Projects page and Shop for all of our children's books and collaborations.
