You have reached the online home of me – Nicki (she/her) – writer, creator, designer, publisher, goal setter. You will find a variety of topics here relating to the things I love to do – science fiction, fantasy, and romance fiction writing; cell phone photography; desktop and fiction publishing; crafting of all sorts; goal setting, mindful living, and minimalism; and other bits and pieces as they arise and seem worthy of inclusion.

Here – read my author bio which I wrote several blogs ago!

Nicki Ivey never trained to be a writer. In fact, she’s never done anything she’s been trained for. After training to drive trucks, and getting an Associate’s Degree in Computer Programming, she promptly got a job for a real estate company in their Marketing department and hasn’t looked back since. But writing has been in her blood since a 4th-grade picture book about a cat that ate a mouse. When National Novel Writing Month changed her life in 2003, she’s had “Career as Writer” engraved on her soul. Finally, it’s time to give her heart what it wants. You can read Nicki’s blog at GrowingUpWalls.com, where she talks an awful lot about writing.
And her cats.
Of which there are four.


Thank you, love you, and I hope you enjoy your stay!
