Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m Nikki. I’m 24 and I recently graduated from university with a degree in biochemistry. Although science has always been a passion of mine, so has writing. I have written and published one book so far but I have many more to come.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my newest, and first ever release is called Monster. The book is about a sixth form student called Tessa Brooks who inflicts torment onto the lives of many people who attend her school. It was inspired mostly by the neighborhood that I grew up in and the secondary school that I attended- not a very nice place!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I’m not sure that it would be unusual as such but it is something that I always do. Before I even know what I’m going to write, I always make playlists that make me feel the characters I’m going to be writing about.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Sharon Bolton has been a big influence on me. I have loved all of her books and I admire the way she interacts with her fans. I suppose another big influence on my writing has been the Pretty Little Liars series of books by Sara Shepard. I love the suspense and mystery that is generated each book in the series and I would love to be able to emulate that in my own writing some day.
What are you working on now?
I’ve got two other projects that I am currently working on. One is another book that fits well into the mystery category but the other is completely different style and I suppose that would be a supernatural/action/adventure book.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m not really sure yet, I’ll let you know when I figure out the best way.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
As a new author I suppose I’m not really in the place to give much advice at the moment. However, I guess I would say don’t give up. Have the courage to put yourself out there. Someone wants to read what you have to say.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
I’m currently reading Calamity; the last installment in the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson.
What’s next for you as a writer?
A bit of promotion and then carrying on working on my other two projects.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Reasons to stay alive, SAS Survival Guide and The Hobbit.
