Bio: When Nikki Leigh first received her contract, she felt total elation. ?It was the first big step in realizing my dream of seeing my own novels in print. I signed the contract in June 2004, but I still contend that the news hasn't totally hit me. I feel sure that it will hit me when the final galleys hit my desk. ?At some point I want to convey the time, place and character to the degree Maeve Binchy does. Reading her stories makes me feel that I am walking down the street with her characters and absorbing the details of the setting without overwhelming me with too many details. ?I've always been creative, but I wanted to write when I was in elementary school. I recently spoke to my grade school teacher who had the confidence that I could accomplish any goal, including writing. I love lighthouses, the beach, history and photography. These interests all help me in the development of my stories. The historic trilogy that I'm working on has required a lot of research. One thing that is making it easier is that my two completed novels are set in the same area. The novel I'm working on now is set on the Cape Ann coast of Massachusetts but will also begin to focus on the history of coastal North Carolina, which will play a part in the next two books. I have also visited all the areas in my novels, which lends more authenticity to my stories.? Nikki is a partner in a construction firm nearAlbemarle County of Virginia..She also owns a small business-consulting firm, which helps to reorganize and establish small businesses, and she is beginning to design web sites for a variety of businesses.
