Meet the author

Nikki Mitchell is a stay-at-home mom to her two children, Evelyn and Everett. She lives in the Upper Peninsula with her husband, kids, and two cats. In addition to homeschooling, she also freelances for special editions at the Iron County Reporter.


A graduate from Northern Michigan University with a bachelor’s degree in English Writing, Nikki loves spending time outdoors, at the local library, or telling stories of grand adventure to her kids. 


She never leaves home without at least one book in her bag. Her favorite place is anywhere cozy with a warm blanket, good book, a hot cup of tea, and classical music. Her favorite authors include Ray Bradbury, JK Rowling, and Harper Lee, but is mostly fond of the classics. Two of her most prized possessions are an autographed copy of Fahrenheit 451, and a copy of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which she has treasured since eighth grade.


With her debut novel, Nikki hopes to help kids find true adventure in the Nightshade forest, while learning about bravery, friendship, and the true magic of reading.
