Meet the Author

Nicky Charles is an independent writer/publisher who became an author quite by accident. She always saw herself as a ‘reader not a writer’ and can thank—or blame, depending on the day—her friend/editor and fellow author, Jan Gordon, for the career she now finds herself immersed in. The tale goes something like this: In January of 2009, Nicky penned a fanfiction for an old TV series, “Scarecrow and Mrs. King”, and soon became ‘hooked’ on story-telling. She joined a fan-based group for the show and through there met Jan Gordon. It was an idle comment made by Jan during a review of Black Silk (Jan’s newly published book) that inspired Nicky to write her first original story. Over the course of the next two months, she hastily scribbled down a suspense-driven romance entitled Forever In Time and presented it to the world in August of 2009. Soon after, she wrote The Mating, a paranormal romance and followed it up with The Keeping and The Finding. The three stories formed a loose paranormal trilogy called The Law of the Lycans. Nicky continues to expand the Lycan series and has a long list of possible plots waiting in the wings. Nicky works full-time and writes in her off-hours, few though they may be! In the next few years she hopes to retire from her day job and concentrate more of her energy on her new passion of writing. When she writes, Nicky sees the story unfolding in her head like a movie and tries to include enough detail so that readers can ‘see’ the story just as she does. The sights, sounds, smells and sensations of a scene are almost as important to her as the actual plot. Creating main characters that are ‘real’ is also something she strives for. Nicky tries to make each character different, to give them an interesting backstory, to make their actions and feelings logical and to hopefully make the reader actually care what happens to the people in the story. Nicky lives in Canada and tries to stick to Canadian spelling and punctuation in her work, in support of her country. She is an avid supporter of animal shelters, nature conservancy, food banks and a variety of other charities. Currently she has two ‘inside’ cats and one official ‘outside’ cat though a number of strays seem to take up residence in her garden each year. When not writing, Nicky enjoys reading – though she often bemoans that she seldom has time for it any more. Her favourite authors are Elizabeth Peters, S.C. Stephen and Cherise Sinclair. She also enjoys spending time out in nature, gardening, taking day trips and eating dark chocolate. You can contact Nicky Charles at her website: www.nickycharles.com

This was the 3rd book in the series and I loved it. The whole series kept you wanting more. The characters were realistic and i found myself caring about them. It was bittersweet when I finished this book. While I wanted to know what was going to happen, I also didn't want it to end. This series kept me up many nights because I just couldn't put the books down. Nicky Charles is an exceptional writer and I hope there is more to come.

At first I didn't think The Finding could hold up to the first two books in the series, WRONG! More villans, more characters to fall in love with. Mrs. Mitchell may have just a small role in the story but I sure like Her! I kind of feel guilty because these books are so good, yet they are all free. I would love to read more books from this author free or not and I hope to see more in this series in the future. I am hooked!!!!!

I absolutely LOOOOVE this series. I can not imagine why Nicki is not a published author!! The characters are so real. Emotional & passionate. Erotic, yet very tastefully written. Danger, suspense, twist an mystery. What more could a girl ask for? The Finding is my favorite, ONLY because they just keep getting better. I Dearly hope this is not the last of the series. I So Look Forward to Nicki's future stories. She is such an amazing talented writer...

I just finished the last book in this series. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed each book and was so sad to see it end. During the series, I was amazed how the packs and families shared so much together as humans & Wolves. This series makes you look at wolves in a different way, how they have a commune and share with others of their kind. This is a really nice story of the Wolves and how they live as humans & wolves and carry out the laws of their elders. Nicky, I am so sorry to hear about your hand and arm. I do hope you have a very speedy recovery. I know all of your fans will be waiting for some more of your wonderful books. You are a very creative writer and can keep the reader pulled in almost all the time. It will be hard to leave all the characters behind in this series. As I said, I have never read any books like these before and almost did not get this set. I am so happy I did because it introduced me to not only the writings of Nicky Charles but various types of other books that I would have never thougt to read.. Thank You Nicky Charles for a Great Series. Can't wait for the next one. Take Care and get well.

I really enjoyed each of the 3 books in this series ! You took werewolves and instead of bringing out the negative, old fashion stories you made your readers feel they were just like us in many ways! I loved each individual wolf and hope you write at least one more for the series. Thank you for offering this Free e series!!!

I really liked this book and i hope there'll be another one. I have done nothing but read this series in all of my spare time these last few weeks. I'm sad to be done though because now I'm not sure what to read next.

Too much time spent on the sex scenes, and not enough on the actual story. First book was much better. Elise and Kane story line much more interesting. But, this one had more humor. Actually hope there are more books to come. It's interesting watching author grow.

I also felt guilty with them being free. The finding said she has arm problems and might not write for awhile. I am super bummed and wondering if she can just hire a typist to help her. I read the entire series in about a week. That is over 4000 pages, thats how good she is. And yes I do have a busy schedule, but the books were totally impossible to put down. I kept falling asleep and getting mad at myself and would try to force myself awake to read more. This woman should be a millionaire....

I really enjoyed this book. Sorry for the folks who said it was unbelievable. It IS a book about werewolves! Grab a cup of tea or a glass of wine, curl up someplace comfortable and give your "belief" a break for a while. Life is far too serious!

Loved the Mating, the Keeping was okay, but the Finding keeps putting me to sleep. Days go by before I want to read it again. I just feel like I should finish it because I'm waiting for it to get better. Story jumps around to many different point-of-views that you forget which standpoint you are reading from. There is no protagonist you can side with to immerse yourself in the book because the point-of-views change so much. yes, we know cassie is scared of wolves, and elise has a secret, and bryans enforcing he finding, blah, blah, blah. We keep on being reminded of these points non-stop, there is no focus. I keep on skipping paragraphs and pages because its so boring and repetitive. People don't actually meet until pages 300-500. By then you are so over the book
