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.

Rainne reviewed on July 12, 2015

I enjoyed this series, it's well written and draws you deep into the world of the Lycan. (books1-5 read)

The first book is useful in establishing the Lycan culture... laws, traditions, politics, etc., with some great insight into the background.

The world building throughout the series is wonderfully descriptive.
The characters are well developed with strong personalities, and continue to grow through the books.

Overall the series is fascinating, imaginative, dark and thrilling.
A must read for fans of the paranormal, though not really for teens.

It was dragged out, it took forever for the main characters to meet, and I didn't think the sex with Kellen was necessary, actually it was a total turn off for me and made me stop reading the book. Thus, I deleted it from my reading device before Bryan and Cassandra even had the chance to met...


Such a disappointment. I actually liked both the previous books.

THANK YOU Nicky Charles for begin such an excellent writer, I'm am still blown away by these books, I LOVED them*************** I found all the books brought me into all the lives of the characters, who they are, and their lives. Also the connections in to each book and characters was brilliant and I loved the catch ups so we see how things have moved for them through out the different times and stories and also how they are all connected in one or more stories. all I can say is loved them all
You have a fan for life and thank you for sharing your wonderful work.

Cannot put these books down!!! Downloaded everywhere.... On my phone, on my tablet, on my desktop...I cannot stop reading! Nicky has such a talent for catapulting you into her world which apparently is very real for her, and making you read on and on to get what happens next. I will be rereading each one as the world she transplants you in can be complex to understand and deserves a second, even third reading. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended!!!
