Nick Stafford was born in 1959 in Staffordshire. He has been a freelance creative writer for over 15 years, mainly writing for the theatre but his scripts have also been produced for radio and television. In 2007, his adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's War Horse became a sell-out show at the National Theatre, it returned a year later for another sell-out run and is now a major show in the West End. He lives in London.
