Nikki Broadwell

Nikki Broadwell grew up an ‘army brat’, living in several states as well as Germany during her formative years. But it was her time in Virginia on a 400- acre farm that set the imaginative stage for “The Moonstone”, the first book of a fantasy trilogy entitled “Wolfmoon”.

She received a B.A. in English and Art from Sonoma State University and later studied Marriage, Family and Child Counseling. Over the years Nikki has had several art related businesses, including greeting cards and painting on silk–scarves and wall-hangings–that were displayed in high end galleries.

After living in the Pacific Northwest for over 15 years, Nikki, her husband and a dog and a cat have relocated to Tucson, Arizona (close to the Catalina Mountains) where the light shines, illuminating everything.

Nikki spends a lot of walking and contemplating the beauty around her. She has two grown children and seven grandchildren. Now she writes full time and has 11 books published, 2 Kindle Gift Sets and one planned for release the first of 2016.

Burning Night by Nikki Broadwell

Burning Night – by Nikki Broadwell

Where the ashes of the past awaken the future

This is the turning point…

When Collie flees an abusive husband she’s also escaping her sordid past. But when her money is stolen, the only way to earn it back in time for her trip to Alaska, is to do the very thing she hoped she left behind. Burning Night festival is only a month away and she simply has to be there.

Exotic dancing at her age seems laughable, but the woman who owns the bar thinks differently. Meanwhile she’s met a much younger man who is undermining all her good intentions.

As the past catches up with the present, terrible memories rise to the surface. Can she untangle the threads of her life before it’s too late, or will her dreams be lost forever in the web closing in around her?

Cold Coffee Review: Collie’s life is out of control. Everything that can happen, seems to be happening. Her marriage was a disaster, due to Dean’s abuse, and running seems to be her only way of escape.

While memories haunt her awake and sleeping mind, a trip to Alaska to attend the Burning Night Festival is perhaps going to be a fresh start. The trip is long and through her emotional pain, she finds a strange sort of comfort, when her laptop becomes her voice. As she writes, a character emerges named May.

Collie’s old truck doesn’t like the trip up Medicine Mountain within the Crow homeland. At 10,000 feet the “wind whips around her, like something alive”. With clean fresh air, wildlife in abundance all around her, a sense of reverence abounds, even though she is not Native American Indian.

Dancing is in Collies blood. Her dance is not done in a huge auditorium where everyone admires the rhythm of each limb orchestrating moves within a flowing white costume. Instead, it is a dance that frees her body, mind and soul, while attracting the wrong types of men to fill her loneliness.

Can Collie take her love of dance, the magic of Medicine Mountain, a new relationship, and the words that pour from her mind, through her finger tips, into her manuscript, create a life worth staying alive for?

I enjoyed reading Burning Night. I hope the author will choose to let us know how Callie does in the future. I invite you to read this book along with the many other books written by Nikki Broadwell. Nikki uses her life experiences in Pacific Northwest and now Desert Southwest of the United States to create her novels. I purchased this book in Kindle and posted the review on October 27, 2018.
