Nicci is an author, a literary graduate, and a straight up classy gal. She likes to write, read and refer to herself in third person. She writes science fiction, sweet romances, twisted alpha male sagas, and gritty erotica. Nicci has just finished writing her first novel, Facing Us, and has listed it for pre-sale on Kindle. That is, of course, after her editor spent a lot of time ripping out the bullshit and highlighting the sparkles.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Ever wrote? Hmmm. Yes. It was about a young girl who is visited by death. It is a love story with erotic elements. It was never finished. I may have to rectify that.
What is your writing process?
My characters are in my head until the story is finished. They just keep multiplying. I see them doing things, and hear them saying things. I let the characters take the story where it goes. I don't like to plan to much because the character arc changes and evolves as they move through the narrative and I can't be sure they will be the same people by the end. Basically, I can't predict how it will all pan out until I am living it with them.
This bitter sweet short story has the reader follow a brother and sister into a world that challenges everything they know to be real. The perfect quick read. Sweet, and thought provoking, The Last Park explores how we are capable of ignoring the truth right in front of us. Life as we know it, is just a fairytale.
