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.

This is the first novel I have read by either of these ladies and I have to say I really liked it, it’s so different to anything I have read before and it’s an enchanting tale of finding love when you least expect and being able to move on after life has been rough to you. It’s a great story about second chances.

During the 20’s when Eugenie is a young woman who has her whole life a head of her, she has a terrible accident and dies. Fast forward eighty years and she is a Guardian Angel in training and her first real case where she actually gets to communicate with people instead of just watching is to help Benjamin Davis.

Her Guardian Angel boss; Michael suspects that deep down inside this shy young woman there is some one worth paying attention to, he sees her potential like no one ever has. He gives her the opportunity not just to step up in her GA role but to also for a short period of time actually live and experience life something she has never been able to do. When she was alive she was practically a doormat to her demanding parents and in her death she was just floating from one department to another never knowing her place.

As Ben and Eugenie begin to get closer, she soon starts to see him as more than just a case and more as a man in need of a little love and soon her feelings for him grows. It’s so heart-warming seeing them both start to learn about not only each other but about themselves too. Eugenie missed out on so much not just because she died very young but while she was a live she missed out on her younger years and watching as she starts to live is very lovely, especially when you can see her falling in love with him.

Untired Heart is so fresh and new, it is a story that at first seems a bit too out there but once you begin to read it and get to know Ben and Eugenie as people it is tender, unique and thoughtful take on the romance genre and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nicky Charles and Jan Gordan have created a beautifully written and charming romance about two characters who you genuinely take an interest in and care about, and it is one that I can very much recommend.

An interesting and loving story and a series I’m looking forward to reading more of.
