After years of work experience as a CSR at The Philadelphia Inquirer, Nicki took an early retirement from the best job she's had to totally focus on one she truly loves -- writing. Now clearly set on her writing journey she has more than one Young Adult novel ready to go. An avid reader, she currently enjoys contributing YA reviews on the social media website, LibraryThing.com. Always one for histories and mysteries, when not creating stories, Nicki haunts the local library or historical society where she unearths intriguing historical tidbits to enhance her writing. And wherever all this following her heart's desire leads to is still a mystery to be played out.
