Nicki Elson writes spicy fiction with a sweet and dreamy center. She does other stuff, too...like obsess over reality TV (and she's not ashamed to admit it).

Writing fiction wasn't something Nicki set out to do; it just sort of happened when she realized writing reports was by far her favorite part of her investment consulting position. She traded stock allocation and diversification for story arcs and dialogue and now weaves creative writing into her life with her family in the Chicago suburbs.

Nicki writes with two goals in mind: #1 to keep the characters realistic, even when their circumstances are anything but, and #2 to make the reader feel.

Writing.

I've never wanted to "be a writer" - I just want to write. Having books out in the world and having readers enjoy them helps me give myself permission to continue crafting new stories in lieu of all the other things I could be doing with my time.(less)

I had trouble getting motivated to finish my curren WIP, so last month I required myself to sit down for 90 unplugged, uninterrupted minutes a day. At first the words came slowly and painfully, but after about a week I found myself fully immersed in the story again and the words flowed like crazy. I still have less-than-productive writing sessions, but as long as I move forward, even if only an inch, I count it as time well spent.(less)
