About N L Fowler
Who is Nickii Fowler? No one special. Someone very special. Someone with an identity crisis and someone who knows exactly who she is. In truth, someone who isn't very concerned about that. I am who and what I am. I have loved writing all of my life, and spent many a day in grade school writing a story while listening to the teacher. I was always good at multiple tasking even before we had a name for it. At school there was a following of students who avidly awaited the next installment of my latest scribbling. This continued all my years of school and overflowed into my working years. Until one day in my early twenties after completing three manuscripts that were accidentally tossed out, began my long waltz with writers block. Thirty five blinking' years. I could write a report for work, write essay in college, write a letter, re-write a play for church, but not one word for a story of my own. For those who haven't experienced something like this, it's extremely painful. For me it's not that I want to write, but that I have to write. Words, plots, and thoughts begin rolling around my head from the moment I wake up. They were there but wouldn't form a line to travel down my arm and onto the page. Always there was a study of history, and my beloved genealogy. Then came the time that I began taking care of my ailing parents. Mother had ovarian cancer and when approaching the end of her life my father suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke, which left him unable to use his right side, or speak. I was Daddy's full time caregiver for seven years, the sole care-giver. I did everything for him, dressed him, got him into his wheel-chair, and taught him how to feed himself. It was the hardest and the most wonderful seven years of my life. A blessing in a form I never expected. Had our positions been reversed they would have done the same for me. An act of true love. Daddy passed in 2007. Then in 2014, I sat at the computer and began to actually write! The words flew onto the page, and within seven months, I had finished a novel! Funny thing was, it over 900 pages long. I have no idea what I was thinking. So I began splitting it up into four books, the birth of The de Clare Chronicles. How utterly remarkable. Now I have just published some of the books and have 3 more completed, with 9 others in various stages of completion, and thoughts for three more rattling around in my head. I'm Nickii Fowler - Author, and very proud of it. Happy reading....
