Author of, among others, THE WEDDING CRASHER: A Sam Tate Mystery, the 2019 Kindle Book Review Awards winner for best mystery/thriller and THE FORMER ASSASSIN, a 2018 Kindle Book Review best mystery/thriller top five. Non-fiction inspirational book, HOPE IN SMALL DOSES, is a 2015 Eric Hoffer Montaigne Medal finalist. Just released: BIRD IN HAND, the second in the series about the complicated and compelling Samantha (Sam) Tate. Imagine a crime procedural, mystery and character study wrapped together with a historical component thrown in. Oh, and pirates.

I like: book clubs, chocolate, writing, yoga, and my dog, in no particular order. I recently lost my sister/best friend sister, Deborah. Healing is slow but steady.

I'm thinking about the third book in the Sam Tate series. So much COULD happen to Sam, but what SHOULD happen to her? I've also got a children's book planned.

The Wedding Crasher by Nikki Stern
"The Wedding Crasher made me miss my commuter train stop twice this past week. The book kept me up and reading way past my bedtime. And author Nikki Stern is now on that very short list of authors whose books I automatically pre-order because I am so " Read more of this review »

“Whether we’re the largest, smallest, most or least significant thing in the universe makes for a marvelous late-night discussion. It’s not relevant to how we live in the here and now. We need to look around, take measure of ourselves, and decide what we can do and how much of it we do to improve our lives and the lives of as many others as we can reach.”
Nikki Stern, Hope In Small Doses

“For every summons to a shining city on the hill or a promise of change we can believe in, we are presented with hundreds of examples of mudslinging and appeals to mob mentality. Rudeness is recast as honesty, greed is presented as ambition, and lines in the sand blur and move.”
Nikki Stern, Hope In Small Doses
