Nancy Winters is a poet, novelist and travel writer who has reported from all over the world for leading newspapers and magazines including TRAVEL &LEISURE, CONDE NAST TRAVELLER, THE TIMES, GOURMET and FAME, where she was a Contributing Editor. The author of NEW YORK magazine's Hotel Guide, she was also for several years Food Critic for THE NEW YORK POST, where she had her own column, THE RESTAURANT GAME.

MAN FLIES, her biography of the Brazilian aeronaut, Alberto Santos-Dumont, first published in London and described as "a gesture in poignant archaeology", was reprinted Germany, Japan, America and Brazil, and voted a BOOK OF THE YEAR by THE LOS ANGELES TIMES.

The author of three novels, THE GIRL ON THE COCA-COLA TRAY, DADDY and THERE'S NO PLACE TO CRY AT THE RITZ, and a memoir THE ENGLISH WAY, she has survived being swept out to sea, aged four; as well as gliding in Iceland, a landslide in the Carpathians, driving through the Yucatan jungle, and bringing Winnie The Pooh by Concorde for a tea at The Savoy. Her plan to kidnap him and return him to London, sadly, failed.

An avid fencer and recipient of the Meritos Santos-Dumont, she is a Fellow of The Royal Geographical Society and an honorary Member of The Brazilian Air Force. Married to the NEW YORKER cartoonist, Gahan Wilson, she lives in London and New York.
