About Nikki indeed! I write contemporary romance novels. And romantic suspense novels. And Irish family sagas. And Gay erotic romance.
My heroes are strong on the outside, emotionally fractured on the inside. My heroines are goof-ridden towers of strength.
My stories lean toward the guy’s perspective, because I love men.
I have completed several manuscripts, aiming for the category romance market. While two single title suspense manuscripts languish on my hard drive, those babies will have to wait their turn while I work on my long contemporary novel ‘A Man Like DiMauro’.
I read widely. Favourite authors include Kristan Higgins, Nora Roberts, David Baldacci, Harlan Coben, Anita Shreve, Zadie Smith, Sandra Marton, Stephen King, Tony Parsons, Nick Hornby, and Edna O’Brien.
Favourite movies include Die Hard (d'uh!), Apollo 13, Riding in Cars with Boys, Dumb and Dumber, Just Friends, Deadpool, and anything with Ryan Reynolds in it. Sorry 000111. I also watch Gavin And Stacey whenever it's running on telly, which is always.
Before writing, I enjoyed a long and varied career in software testing. Met the kindest and truest friends both in Dublin and around the world, and picked up a gorgeous programmer in the process.
About the photo here, never mind the lines on my face, I've gotten way more since then. That photo was taken in the garden of the home I share with my hot programming husband (AKA 000111) and our two delightfully crazy sons.
