Dorothy Nicolle, who runs Blue Hills Press, is also a professional Blue Badge tourist guide for the Heart of England area. Since qualifying in 1993 she has led tours all over the Midlands, although she now concentrates her attention on Shropshire and the areas immediately surrounding the county.
Not long after she started guiding, Dorothy was asked to give a talk on local history and she has since built up a repertoire of talks, mainly to do with local history, although a number of her talks easily cross the county boundaries and she has, in fact, lectured in many other parts of England
It was an easy step for Dorothy to move from the spoken word to the written word and her first book was published in 1996. Since then she has written over 20 books and has now set up Blue Hills Press to produce yet more
