Alex Nye was born in Leicester, England, and has been writing for many years. She lives in Dunblane, Scotland, with her two children. Chill is her first novel.
'Alex Nye's involving Chill is set near Stirling, in a snowbound house with a ghost in the library. It's a tense confection of mystery, historical intrigue and adventure for 8-12 year olds. Young heroes Samuel and Fiona find they cannot ignore a call from the past to put things right.' -- Lindsey Fraser, Sunday Herald
