More about Nicole

I have been committed to animals as a vegan for over 20 years. My life journey has taught me to look behind what things appear to be at face value.

My professional writing background and my passion for animal rights were destined to collide at some stage. These two important parts of my life have resulted in the formation of Tusk Books.

I set up Tusk Books to give animals a voice. My aim is to create a series of picture books that provide a glimpse into the lives of different animals. Each story will be captivating, but also informative and have unique and beautiful illustrations.

My first book, Ella is about a little elephant who works the streets with her keeper (mahout). Her heart is broken and she desperately wants to find her mum.

After visiting Thailand and meeting elephants who had suffered terribly throughout their lives, I knew the first book had to tell their story.

I believe that most people have compassionate and generous hearts. Sadly, most aren’t aware of the hardship and suffering the animals they encounter on holidays have been through just so they can have a ‘once in a lifetime experience’ such as an elephant ride, patting a baby elephant, or having a photo with a gibbon or any other wild animal.

My books tell the stories of these animals. They are a little sad, but are also uplifting and have messages of hope.

My next picture book is due out in the first half of 2018. Stay tuned!

I look forward to you joining me on this journey.
