MICKI - LORI - RACHEL
Hello everyone! I'm Micki and I'm a book-aholic! I will stay up until all hours of the night, get up early, sit in a parking lot or sneak into the bathroom.. just to read "one more chapter". I love the feeling of being swept away into another world through the words and imaginations of others. I am always chasing my next book "high".In my other life I am the mother of five, work full time as a nurse and am active in my church and community. I also write in my free time..heehee.. free time.. and independently published my first novel The Winds of Darkness in February 2013.I really like to jump genres, it's my ADD, I cant stay in one place to long :) YA,NA, Paranormal, Fantasy and Romance are my favorite. I am a HUGE The Walking Dead fan and love to read apocalyptic type stories as well.
Hi there! My name is Lori and I am a wife, a mother of two young children, and work full-time as a secretary. When I’m not busy (which isn’t very often), I try to get in as much reading as possible – usually after the kids go to bed. I’ve also been known to do a little sneak-reading at work (shhh!). I am often stressed and overwhelmed at the number of books on my TBR. So many books, so little time! I love to escape reality and get lost in a world where everything is perfect, especially the men. I love to read anything with romance – whether it be YA, NA, Paranormal, Contemporary, or Erotica. Other interests of mine include music, going to movies, shooting pool, concerts, and traveling. I look forward to making many new book-lovin’ friends and sharing my love of reading with you.
Hello. I'm Rachel. I love books. All kinds of books, really. But ever since my late teenage years, when I read my first romance novel by Nora Roberts, I've been obsessed with all things romance. I independently published Home, a contemporary romance novel, in March of 2014. My follow up, Broken Home is set to come out this spring. Somewhere in between my countless hours of reading and writing, I also work part time from home and take care of my husband and two children.

“If you only go to one book signing event make it the BF Bookies North Iowa Book Bash. Not only are Lori, Micki, and Rachel delightful they are professional and well-organized. Everything ran smoothly from the author get together the night before through the heartfelt farewells. Stories were told, books were bought and friends were made. I can not wait until next year.” ~Bartenn Mills
“The wonderful trio of ladies behind NIBB went out of their way to make me feel welcome, even though I hadn’t met a single person in attendance at the time of registration. Lori, Micki, and Rachel’s enthusiasm for the book world and the kindness they show to everyone they meet are quite simply contagious. The friendships I formed with the other attending authors during the mixer the night before the signing are invaluable in so many ways, and I look forward to meeting even more next year! The signing itself was the perfect ratio of author/fan, allowing me to connect with dozens of potential readers in a relaxed environment. NIBB is at the top of my list of signings not to be missed! ~Jennifer Ann
