After graduating in 1969 from the University of California, Berkeley, Nikki travelled for several months, arriving in Montréal in April 1970 where she lived until 1992. Nikki came of age in California during the sixties and held a sympathetic view of the Front de libération du Québec until the October Crisis. The events leading up to the FLQ’s kidnapping and murder of Pierre Laporte, the beauty of Montréal and the complexity of Québec politics inspired the setting and backdrop of “Evidence of Uncertain Origin”, Nikki’s first mystery novel.
Nikki lives and writes in Guelph, Ontario. She has self-published a book of poetry, “connect disconnect” with the help of Vocamus Press and developed writing workshops under the auspices of her small business, Scripted Images.
