About the Author

Flora Collins was born and raised in New York City and has never left, except for a four-year stint at Vassar College. When she's not writing, she can be found watching reality shows that were canceled after one season or attempting to eat soft-serve ice cream in bed (sometimes simultaneously). Nanny Dearest is her first novel, and draws upon personal experiences from her own family history.


VOGUE, The Best Books to Read This Fall

Town&Country, THE 45 MUST-READ BOOKS OF FALL 2021

"A domestic thriller in which the domestic elements are cannily veiled as the book unfolds, Nanny Dearest is an accomplished thriller debut." --VOGUE

"A slick thriller, Nanny Dearest shows the dark side of a family and the nanny who promised to care for everyone in the home." --CrimeReads,"Books Focused on Opulent Wealth, Family Secrets & Suspense"

"A well-crafted debut . . . horrifying . . . Psychological thrillers fans won't be disappointed." --Publishers Weekly

"Collins skillfully pivots between two timelines and perspectives... It's a seesaw of rising tension that ultimately delivers a raw, crashing conclusion... Collins's debut illustrates the sometimes obsessive and terrifying nature of love and the shattering consequences of its betrayal. Nanny services across the country may see a dip in demand when this intensely emotional psychological roller coaster is released." --Library Journal

"Nanny Dearest is not just an entertaining suspense novel but a therapeutic one for any adult who has faced disturbing holes in the family tree. Unsettling, compelling, elegantly paced--Flora Collins' debut is a slick, contemporary novel that explores the wispy, nagging memories of childhood, the dark side of relationships, and the unrelenting desire to be loved." --Julia Heaberlin, bestselling author of We Are All the Same in the Dark

"A delicious spine-tingling thriller that lulls the reader into a false sense of security before going straight for the jugular. Packed with haunting characters and twisted relationships, this impossible-to-put-down slow burner might make people think more than twice about their childcare arrangements!"--Hannah Mary McKinnon, bestselling author of You Will Remember Me

"Flora Collins is a sure-handed and inventive suspense novelist, and NANNY DEAREST is an impressive, immersive novel sure to be a big hit. I loved it." --Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of The Good Left Undone

"A powerful debut about the fine line between love and obsession...haunting." --Miranda Smith, author of What I Know

"You won't be able to put this book down." --Emily Freud, author of My Best Friend's Secret
