About Brontë Babe Blog

Hello and welcome to Brontë Babe Blog. I’m Nicola, a blogger, writer, and Brontë devotee also known as the Brontë Babe. In 2017 I set up Brontë Babe Blog to introduce readers to the juvenilia of the Brontë siblings. An avid reader, I also review non-Brontë books on my blog. I have contributed to several Brontë-themed projects (details below). My debut novel, A Tale of Two Glass Towns, is now available to purchase!

I also have a small Etsy shop – Brontë Babe Books. www.etsy.com/uk/shop/BronteBabeBooks
