Nickie Fleming was born and raised in the historical town of Dendermonde, Belgium, home of the legendary Horse Bayard.
Nickie read English and Dutch Literature and Linguistics at the University of Ghent, where she took her master's degree in 1978.
She began work as a teacher of languages to 16-18-year-olds and has done so during her long career. Now she enjoys retirement.
She has been writing since she could hold a pen in her hand, but only came to publication when she was well over 50 - mainly because she was not actively seeking it.
