Nicki Pascarella writes Contemporary and Historical Romances. She enjoys mixing genres—adding a small-town mystery to her steamy romance or a pinch of paranormal fantasy to her romantic comedies. It’s all about making her readers laugh and fall in love. Using her twenty-nine years of experience as a high school teacher and her background in creative writing and journalism, she edits and coaches authors for The MediaCasters. Helping artists break through creative blocks is one of her passions. When she isn't writing and editing, she reads, runs, and hangs with her husband, teenage daughter, and Shetland sheepdogs. Nicki is also an award-winning belly dancer.
