Welcome! My name is Nicki and I am the curator of this exhibit. Feel free to browse around and read at your leisure. My forte is the short story, which has been the launching point of my interest in creative writing, and my learning arena. Inevitably, a larger work has begun to brew in the depths of my imagination. As I enjoy the writing process, I continue to learn and hone my craft. To this end, I encourage your comments and feedback. I try to read, rate and review items of those kind enough to offer their time to my work.

If you scroll down to the bottom of this page, you will find several folders containing all my stories. Click on any folder title and a list of its contents will open and you will be able to read any story from there. Otherwise, here is a quick list of my favorite selections. Click on any title to read that story:
