I fell for the premise: the story of Seth, a saucepan scrubber in a weird building whose inmates make Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel guests look boring.

Nicki Thornton

Nicki’s passion is inspiring children to love reading for pleasure and has been a compulsive reader since early childhood. A career in journalism meant Nicki had to write for a living, but running her own bookshop for ten years helped to remind her how much fun writing can be. The result – her debut novel, THE LAST CHANCE HOTEL.
