Nadine. A French name, meaning, "hope."
With her lifelong passion for life-enriching fiction, Nadine C. Keels enjoys reading and writing everything from short stories to novels. Her fiction works include Love Unfeigned and The Movement of Crowns Series, and select pieces of her lyrical poetry can be found on her spoken word album, Hope. Lyricized. Through her books and her blog (Prismatic Prospects), Nadine aims to spark hope and inspiration in as many people as she is privileged to reach.

"My aspiration is for my words to help people: to bring hope, to change minds, to expand imagination, to provide entertainment, and to save lives—as other authors’ words have done for me."

I love when my writing helps people.(less)

Hello, Eric! Thanks for asking! I'd say my parents are the guilty parties here. They both were readers.

My mom took me and my siblings down to the public library for books since we were quite little, and we had a family reading club for years. My dad would put up a new calendar in the kitchen each month where we'd write our initials down every time we finished a book, and a running total for each family member was at the bottom of the calendar. Every time one of us kids finished ten books, we'd get some sort of little prize, but when it came down to it, it wasn't about the prizes. Even when the reading club eventually phased out, we kept on reading. My uncle once joked that he'd never seen kids who were so excited to get books for Christmas!

As for my writing, if I had to pinpoint a time when I got started, it was when I was eight years old. I had to write a story for school, using specific spelling words, and my dad seemed to think the story was rather good. (He kept the story--still has it, in fact.)

I've been writing stories ever since. I just put book covers on them now. :-)(less)
