Nikki Moyes writes YA fiction and her first book, "If I Wake" was published in 2016. She was born in Victoria and has moved around Australia amassing an eclectic range of occupations including tallship watch leader, apiarist, rose farm hand, and sandwich artist. In her spare time she learns tissu, static trapeze, and aerial hoop (she couldn’t decide on one) in case she needs to run off and join the circus.
How do you approach cover design?
I used a professional cover designer. After searching the internet for hours to find images I liked, I can across Avicii's song 'Wake Me Up'. I sent the designer the picture of the girl from the music clip and he came up with the cover I have now.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a full-time job to pay the bills. Also I read a lot and sometimes I even leave the house ;)
