Kari Nichols on Gets Personal About Family & Marriage @TheKariNichols #Romance #Contemporary

Tell us a bit about your family.
I met my husband playing sand volleyball when we were in college, and we’ve been happily married for seven years. Last July we moved to New York City with our two little black cats, Sushi and Bamboo. We own a wedding photography studio named Cottonwood Studios where we travel all over the world to take photos of beautiful couples!
How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
I’m blessed with friends and family that I can run to every time I start to doubt my work. I usually just have my husband read through whatever is causing me stress, and he gives me feedback on how to fix what’s wrong … or he tells me I’m crazy because it’s great. Either way, it’s wonderful.

What scares you the most?

Apart from bugs (yes, I’m really girly when it comes to creepy crawlers), I would have to say becoming stagnant in life. I really enjoy taking risks and living life as an adventure. If things are too calm or comfortable, I start to get freaked out.

What makes you happiest?

Traveling the world with my husband.

What’s your greatest character strength?

I never do anything without putting 100% of myself into it.

What’s your weakest character trait?

I’m one-tracked to a fault. I can only concentrate on one thing at a time. And my poor husband suffers for it!

Why do you write?

I’ve always needed a creative outlet. I’m a professional photographer, so that takes care of the artistic side of me. But writing allows me to vent and rejoice and create and destroy. It’s therapeutic.

Have you always enjoyed writing?

Absolutely. Even when I was in school, if the assignment was an essay or in-class writing rather than a quiz or a test, I was ecstatic.

What are you most proud of in your personal life?

I’m proud of where I am in life. In our first year of marriage, my husband and I were barely able to make ends meet. We were so poor! I was working for a photographer at the time, and my husband was working as a high-rise window cleaner (and not making nearly enough money to do that job!). We looked at each other one day and said, “Why are we here?” So we quit our jobs, moved to a new city, and started two very successful businesses. Fast forward six years and we made almost the same decision again. We weren’t happy living where we were, and we decided if we’re going to be self-employed, we should be in a city we love. So we packed up and moved to New York City. I don’t live in fear. I live life like it’s an adventure.

What books did you love growing up?

A.A. Milne’s Now We Are Six and James Herriot’s Treasury for Children. My grandparents gave me all the James Herriot collections, and I can remember sitting on the floor, reading his stories with tears streaming down my face. I don’t know why, but I love to cry. I never want anyone to see me crying, but I absolutely love a good cry.


“We stand united, Family of Immortals. Plagued by life. Cursed by the hand of God …”

Rogue was born into an immortal family whose wealth is marked by a trail of blood. But when he meets the unnervingly familiar assistant of his next target, an unexpected rush of emotions begins to unravel his carefully laid plans.

Lissie lives a mundane life filled with work … and little else. She hasn’t taken a risk since she moved to New York City after college—seven years ago. But when the mysterious Matthew McCloud walks through the door of her office, she finds herself diving head-first into a whirlwind romance she never saw coming.
