I was born in Wallingford but have spent most of my life living in a village outside Windsor. After studying pharmacy in Brighton I began working life as a retail pharmacist, quickly realising that trying to decipher doctor’s handwriting wasn’t for me. I left to join the pharmaceutical industry where I spent twenty happy years working in medical communications. My life long love of reading romance often led me to wonder if I could write about it, too. If only I had the time.

Nisha Brown is a native of Atlanta, GA but has resided in CA for the past ten years. She developed a love for writing in elementary school after being a major bookworm herself and spending most of her spare time reading. She was always the kid that had a great way with words. Even though she was a cheerleader and straight A student in her adolescent years she developed a wild teenage lifestyle that landed her in juvenile hall and the foster care system. In the system is where she crafted her writing skills even more because that was all she could do. Her first novel Miss Caramel took her five years to write after a situation where she lost her home, had no computer, and had to live in her car. Her goal as an author is to tackle real life issues with women in general such as stripping, drugs, homelessness, low self-esteem, prostitution, bad relationships, and overall self-worth. Nisha takes pride in motivating others and in spite of the dark past she takes part in being quirky, funny, and fun. Currently she works as a supervisor at a call center and is putting a lot of focus in raising her two beautiful children. Keep on reading!

Reposted with permission
So you’re doing this Winterviews thing. What’s that all about?
Winterviews (Winter Interviews) is one interview a week for the thirteen weeks of winter.
Starting 21 December 2016, I post one interview a week with an author or artist. It’s a chance for up-and-coming talent to showcase their work, their techniques, and share a little of their voice and personality with the world. This is the first year running, and we’ve got an Indie author with several published books, a celebrity burlesque dancer, and other amazing talent we’ll be checking in on throughout the season. I’ve even got a few surprises up my sleeve for January. Keep on reading!
