EPISODE SHOW NOTES

ABOUT MIKKI

Mikki, the eccentric Canadian, has been writing in some form or another for nearly a quarter of a century; since writing her very first poem at age eleven. She lives in Ontario, Canada, with her cats, guinea pig and rabbit.

She found her niche in teen fiction because it’s captivating, open-minded, fast-paced, and every sense is heightened. And that’s also the reason why it’s her favorite genre to pick up at a bookstore. Mikki has a diploma in both, Business Administration and Creative Writing.

She loves creating things, animals, books and movies, trying to make people smile, and talking to her social media friends.
