Author Spotlight: Nikki Ash
October 8, 2018 • News
CJC: How did you get started as an author and what made you want to pursue that field?
NA: I am a reader. For the last several years, I have read over 400 books a year. One day I was looking for a particular storyline and couldn’t find it. A friend jokingly told me to write my own book so I did! And one book led to another. Unbroken Promises is book number eleven!
CJC: What hurdles have your overcome while striving towards your goals?
NA: Reading is a hurdle! I crave reading which leads to me putting off writing.
CJC: Which novel has been your favorite to write and why?
NA: My favorite to write was Takedown because it allowed me to incorporate several tropes I love: rom com, mma fighters, single parent, and give the book plenty of emotions. The book that means the most to me is Unbroken Promises. It’s loosely based off my stepmom’s life story.
CJC: For those looking to become an author, what advice would you give them?
NA: Write for you.
CJC: Favorite motto?
NA: I hate this question. I always feel like I’ll answer it wrong. My flavored quote to live by is to always have faith.
CJC: In one word, how would you describe your writing style?
CJC: Which author inspires you the most and why?
NA: K Webster. She writes for her. She loves what she does and is passionate about it.
CJC: What is your writing process like?
NA: I let the story come to me. When it does, I outline it and then write it.
CJC: What are your goals for the remainder of the year and what projects are you currently working on??
NA: I’m currently working on Heath which is a co-write with K Webster. It comes out October 25th. The rest of the year I’ll be writing and reading and enjoying the holidays with my family.
CJC: Any final thoughts you would like to share with the CJC Photography readers?
NA: If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. 🖤
