(a Summer McCloud paranormal mystery)
'A great cozy mystery. With a bite. Nikki weaves the magical (paranormal) with a deft hand in and out of this well plotted mystery. The book is rich with warm details and fully developed characters.'--Greg Jolley
'Nikki's work is definitely evolving and this new murder mystery series is a fun read.'--Samantha Smith
When her daughters were in middle school, she began a greeting card business, using her own pencil and watercolor creations. This business flourished for several years until the market became flooded and was no longer lucrative. A simple silk-painting kit picked up at an art store set her off on another venture, and soon she was hard at work creating scarves and wall hangings of flowers, birds, and animals.
After almost twenty years, this business came to an end for several reasons. One was the toxicity of the dyes and resists were taking a toll on her lungs. But the biggest reason was that writing had completely taken over her life. There was no time left for any other creative projects!
After living in the Pacific Northwest for over 15 years, Nikki, her husband, and a dog and a cat have relocated to Tucson, Arizona where the light always shines. When not writing, Nikki travels, does yoga, hikes, gardens, and watches the bird and animal life that abound in the desert.
