Nichole Giles had early career plans that included becoming an actress or a rockstar, but decided instead to have a family and become a writer.
She was born in Nevada, the oldest of seven--and later gained an additional four step-brothers—and has lived in Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and South Texas. Someday, she intends to own a home on a tropical island, but for now, she'll keep visiting as many tropical locations as possible, scouting for her future paradise. (And researching more books, obviously!)
At the moment, she lives in the Utah mountains with her husband, two sons, and on old, chubby golden retriever, and is frequently visited by her two married daughters and sons-in-law, along with her grand-dogs (another golden retriever, and a cocker spaniel) and grand-cat, Sophie. Writing is her passion, but she is also a skilled shopper, who loves spending time with her loved ones, traveling to tropical and exotic destinations, driving with her convertible top down, and playing her music at full volume so she can sing along.
