About Nikki Logan

Nikki Logan lives amongst a string of wetlands in Western Australia with her long-suffering partner and a menagerie of furred, feathered and scaly mates.

She studied film and theatre at university, and worked for years in advertising and film distribution before finally settling down in the wildlife industry.

Her romance with nature goes way back, and she considers her life charmed, given that she works with wildlife by day and writes fiction by night–the perfect way to combine her two loves.

Nikki believes that the passion and risk of falling in love are perfectly mirrored in the danger and beauty of wild places. Every romance she writes contains an element of nature, and if readers catch a waft of rich earth or the spray of wild ocean between the pages she knows her job is done.

Review by: A R Dent on March 20, 2013 :
This book is for the writer of fiction who as a problem with writing in the 'Show and Not Tell' style. The book confirms what I already knew in many areas of writing with added information in the second half of the book. DO NOT be put off with the technical stuff in the early sections.... the technical is critical for a fuller understanding of getting your books sold. I just happen to be in a re-write of a book now and see this book as perfect for me to upgrade the standard of writing. We all need reminders though we may already know it. This is highlighted because: I know the subject well but needed to read a brilliantly written expose to remind me of the need to look at this subject always in writing - if not in writing then in self editing before a critique reader sees it. I gave it 5 stars because I could not give it a higher rating. Well done for another Australian author.
