About the Author
Lois Nicholls is a writer, dog lover, wife, and mum of three grown children. Born in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, she migrated to Brisbane, Australia in 1997 with her husband and firstborn son. She is a former newspaper and magazine journalist. She loves animals, humans and if she had her way would be living on a country smallholding (romantic barn included) with a couple of chickens and two Golden Retrievers. Her first book, "Aussie, Actually," captures her heartfelt experiences as a South African migrant living in Australia. Her most recent book, "Bye-bye Bikini," published in August 2018, is a series of frank and humorous columns navigating everyday life from the perspective of a fifty-something former newspaper and magazine journalist.
“What Dog is THAT?” is her first children’s book.
