About the Author

Makaila Nichols started her modeling career at age fourteen when she signed with a respected agency, Wilhelmina Models International. Since then, she's juggled school, modeling, a budding acting career, and now, her new-found passion for writing.

Although Makaila's life has been anything but ordinary, she faces many of the same challenges as other teens. In her debut book, Blatantly Honest, she hopes to reach other young people by sharing her insights and advice on handling common teenage problems such as: friends, dating, sex, and bullying.
