HAPPY RELEASE DAY FOR ALEXIS MOONLIGHT BOOK #1 (THE CROSS KNIGHT CHRONICLES)
Hey there, world! Thank you for visiting my site.
My name is Yvonne Nicolas and I am an author! Felt AHH-mazing to type that.
I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida, where I spent a good part of my childhood baking in the sun at Disney. To be honest, I pretty much baked in the sun everywhere I went, because Florida is super hot, and so are the people.
Much love to my fellow Florida natives.
Now, I reside in beautiful Georgia. Guess that means I’m still a southern gal!
I’ve been an avid reader since the age of fourteen. Like most serial readers, I couldn’t get enough. I consumed books like I was possessed! I finished 2 to 3 novels a week. Sometimes more.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had the creative itch. My creativity spanned from music to drawing to architectural design. After college, I was able to score a job as an architectural designer. It was awesome, and I loved what I did, but for some reason my heart wasn’t fully invested. Felt like something was missing. During the year of the big housing market crash, architectural firms throughout the America suffered. As a result, they started laying off. My firm held onto me until the bitter end, but eventually they had to let me go. I wasn’t upset about it because I knew the situation, but it still sucked. Little did I know, it was a blessing in disguise.
I was always writing, even during my architecture design days, but they were stories for my eyes only. Needless to say, I didn’t think my writing was good enough to share with anyone. I know many writers have this same fear. One day, my friend peeked into my slutty story file, without my permission of course. She enjoyed the story and told me I was wasting my God-given gift by keeping it myself. I figured she only said those things because she was my friend, so I brushed it off. She badgered me for months about it. Finally, I gave in. With a trembling heart full of fear, I shared my tales with the world. I was knocked off my feet when my first release became a bestseller! I thought the world had either gone crazy, or my friend was right. I have a gift for writing!
And now, here I am, in love with my imagination and the characters that emerge from it. You may not love them as much as I do. However, I promise you, they will leave a lasting impression.
I’m ever so eager to take you on this journey with me. So grab a drink, have a seat and strap in.
It’s going to be a wild ride!
