Nichelle Gainer was born and raised in New Jersey and lives in New York. Her first book, Vintage Black Glamour, is a coffee table book that celebrates some of the most glamorous, inspiring groundbreaking black women - legendary and obscure - of the 20th century.

Nichelle used to blog about beauty, fashion and lifestyle at 55 Secret Street and she may get back to that soon - but she is definitely back at work writing fiction. In her former life, she was an Assistant Editor at GQ magazine and wrote for magazines and websites including InStyle, Essence and Glamour. She has been featured in The Washington Post, BBC News, NPR, The Guardian and O, The Oprah Magazine.
