Book Description

Jennifer Whitney was the last American virgin. At least that’s what she felt like in 1986 as she began her sophomore year at Central Illinois University. She was proud of her decision to wait for the right guy, and yet she was getting restless. It seemed like everyone around her was doing it... and having fun doing it, too. She didn’t want to become the campus slut or anything, but surely there was a difference between a trashy skank and a nice girl with a little experience. Perhaps it was time to stop relying on fate to guide her and instead take matters into her own hands. And with that realization, Jen decided to find “the one” and lose her virginity, although not necessarily in that order...

I must be part bunny because all of my favorite writing spaces happen to be little nooks. Mostly I like to write in the kitchen nook that serves as a pass-through to the dining room.  It’s a great location because I’m close to family activity, but in a small space that blocks out much of the stimulation (good earbuds & music are another distraction-blocking must for me while writing).
But I also require a change of scenery every once in a while, so I often relocate to the nook in my bedroom. (The silk plant usually gets relegated to the floor when I arrive so that I have some place to set my tasty beverage.)

When the weather is nice (like it is as I write this :)) a third nook opens to me—the screened porch. This one’s probably my favorite, and I’m sure you can understand why.  Nothing like sunshine, flora and bird chirps to rev up the muse.

Above I mentioned the tasty beverage. Like athletes, we writers have quirky rituals, and one of mine is that I have a mug and a glass, each of them a gift from a special friend, that I only allow myself to drink out of when I’m working on a novel or a short story. Want to see them? Okay!

What’s the deal with the “B” on the wine glass, you ask. Well, my friends, that is fodder for a future guest post someday. Thanks for stopping by for the tour of my caves!

About the Author

Writing wasn't something Nicki set out to do; it just sort of happened when she realized writing reports was by far her favorite part of her investment consulting position. She traded stock allocation and diversification for story arcs and dialogue and now weaves her creative writing time in with the other activities of her busy life with her family in the Chicago suburbs. 

Nicki writes with two goals in mind: #1 to keep the characters realistic, even when their circumstances are anything but, and #2 to make the reader feel. Her published works include Three Daves, a light-hearted romantic romp through a 1980s college campus, Divine Temptation, a romantic novel of angelic proportions, and short stories “Sway” (available as a single), “I Don’t Do Valentine’s Day” (part of A Valentine Anthology), and “Impressionism 101” (included in the debut issue of Insatiable: The Magazine of Paranormal Desire).

  1. Fun to picture the writer in their natural habitat, so to speak.
