About Nicky Charles

Nicky Charles is an independent writer/publisher who became an author quite by accident. She always saw herself as a ‘reader not a writer’ and can thank—or blame, depending on the day—her friend/editor and fellow author, Jan Gordon, for the career she now finds herself immersed in. The tale goes something like this:

In January of 2009, Nicky penned a fanfiction for an old TV series, “Scarecrow and Mrs. King”, and soon became ‘hooked’ on story-telling. She joined a fan-based group for the show and through there met Jan Gordon. It was an idle comment made by Jan during a review of Black Silk (Jan’s newly published book) that inspired Nicky to write her first original story. Over the course of the next two months, she hastily scribbled down a suspense-driven romance entitled Forever In Time and presented it to the world in August of 2009. Soon after, she wrote The Mating, a paranormal romance and followed it up with The Keeping and The Finding. The three stories formed a loose paranormal trilogy called The Law of the Lycans. Nicky continues to expand the Lycan series and has a long list of possible plots waiting in the wings.

Nicky has recently retired from her day job and now hopes to concentrate more of her energy on her new passion of writing.

When she writes, Nicky sees the story unfolding in her head like a movie and tries to include enough detail so that readers can ‘see’ the story just as she does. The sights, sounds, smells and sensations of a scene are almost as important to her as the actual plot.

Creating main characters that are ‘real’ is also something she strives for. Nicky tries to make each character different, to give them an interesting backstory, to make their actions and feelings logical and to hopefully make the reader actually care what happens to the people in the story.

Nicky lives in Canada and tries to stick to Canadian spelling and punctuation in her work, in support of her country. She is an avid supporter of animal shelters, nature conservancy, food banks and a variety of other charities. Currently she has two ‘inside’ cats and one official ‘outside’ cat though a number of strays seem to take up residence in her garden each year.

When not writing, Nicky enjoys reading – though she often bemoans that she seldom has time for it any more. Her favourite authors are Elizabeth Peters, S.C. Stephen and Cherise Sinclair. She also enjoys spending time out in nature, gardening, taking day trips and eating dark chocolate.

Reviews of Bonded by Nicky Charles

Oh my God did I love it!!! And it really means something coming from someone who isn't a lover of the paranormal books, someone who never watched or wanted to watch (or read) Twilight saga or any other vampire/werewolf/whatever movie and someone who is totally in love with the characters in this series. It just drew me in from the get go and didn't let go. I was tempted to lock myself from the world for a few days and just immerse my self in these stories without any interruptions.
In case you didn't get it - I LOVED IT, the whole series! :D
I highly recommend it!

Really enjoyed this one as well. Glad to see a strong, intelligent female lead. Sad about Damien, though. :(

As far as I am concerned, Nicky Charles is right up there with the likes of Norah Roberts (whose writing I adore). Nicky, you never fail to keep me turning the pages right to the end and there is never a disappointing moment. I am pleased to learn that you plan to charge for your books. You most definitely deserve to earn from your outstanding writing. Please keep your fascinating stories coming.

This book was amazing! I enjoyed all the refreshing twists and turns in this plot. This talented author packed a lot of action into a love story that kept me engrossed until the very end. I may have missed a little sleep but it was well worth it. I look forward to reading any and everything that this author may ever write. If you are perhaps reading this, I wish you the best in your career and I hope you keep writing!

I rate this series higher then twilight, 50 shades and the Sookie Stackhouse series and I enjoyed all of those books but the Nicky Charles series is something special, each book as good as the previous never a boring page. It would make a great HBO TV series. Looking forward to the next... ;-)
