About Nikki

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember – taking great pride in the ‘compositions’ I wrote in junior school.  As a teenager, I completed my first novel, called Born on the Wind – way ahead of its time, sadly.  Set in Somerset in 1909.  Beautiful orphaned teenager Queenie is sent to live with uncaring guardians.  Falls for a handsome poet old enough to be her father.  Bewitches all the boys around her, but her heart is already lost.  Everyone is afraid of her strange powers.  And it all ends in tears.

I steered clear of historical fiction after that, and eventually wrote my crime thriller, The Price of Silence, which I published as a Kindle e-book in 2011. I’ve since UNPUBLISHED it, and I’ve just finished rewriting it!

In November 2016, I published The Shame of Innocence.   – also featuring Detective Inspector Jeff Lincoln; and in October 2017, I published a Jeff Lincoln novella, A Saintly Grave Disturbed, set in the Easter holidays a few months before The Shame of Innocence opens. The paperback edition of A Saintly Grave Disturbed, with a super new cover image, is selling well!

    1. Thank you! Glad I found your blog, which I stumbled upon when looking up Passing Clouds cigarettes, after my husband bought an old album of cigarette packet labels which included Passing Clouds. I was sure I’d come across it mentioned in a film or book or something. Not sure I knew they were oval, only that they were a bit exotic! Fascinating blog!
