There is nothing better than a good book that will cause you to lose sleep until you’ve read the very last word. When that last word appears you suddenly feel abandoned like you’ve lost your best friend. You had a special connection with each character; you imagined the places they’d been and people they met along their journey. You suddenly feel the need to find a new book to replace the old, and then you’re stuck in the realm of never-ending options. It’s like a kid in the candy store and their mom tells them ‘you can only have one’… well which one do I pick?
I love to read, so much so, that I became an author. While you wait on me to release more work, you can find your next favorite book here. No longer will you need to dread the last page… around the corner is a start of a new journey.
Nik Nicholson became an artist as a teen, writing poetry and painting. She became a professional poet after being nurtured and recognized as a performer of spoken word at the West Las Vegas Art Center’s, Poet’s Corner. As a result, she was often contracted to perform spoken-word for writing classes, assemblies and during black history month.
Over the years Nik has worked as an editor for small presses, had her work published in anthologies and magazines.
In 2009, Nicholson began research for her first independent project, Descendants of Hagar. In addition to traditional research of the period, she also surveyed and interviewed a number of masculine-centered women. Their responses exposed the challenges of coming to terms with and expressing their sexuality and gender role.
Descendants of Hagar is Nicholson’s highly anticipated debut novel. It is the first novel of a two-part series, which includes the intoxicatingly beautiful, Daughter of Zion.
Nik is an artist; in addition to being an author, she is also an education performer, content editor, poet, painter, actor, spoken-word performer, workshop facilitator and novice sculptor. On to top of this, Nik works full time.
Nik is passionate about the arts and writing. When her rigorous schedule permits, she also advises other writers on self-publishing and finding their voice. To keep herself motivated spiritually and to stay productive she also mentors new writers.
