Nicki from Suddenly Single Journey

Welcome back to our member profile feature on From Left to Write. Our club has almost 100 bloggers who love to read, write, and talk about books. On our book club days, you only get a glimpse into their blog so now you can get to know our members a little bit better.

In our book club members profiles, we’re going to do things a bit differently. We’ve asked our bloggers to share some books that have affected their lives in some way.

Today, you’re going to meet Nicki Andrews.  You can find Nicki blogging at Suddenly Single Journey – living, loving, writing, surviving… and on twitter at @thenicknick.

Q: What childhood or children’s book changed your life and how? The little Prince

Nicki: I was always very interested in books with meaning...The Velveteen Rabbit, The Little Prince, The Giving Tree.  I loved books that made me think.

Q: What fiction book has changed your life?

Nicki: Reading the Harry Potter series with my kids both inspired me to write and made me feel inadequate to do so.  The books were brilliant and meaningful.  They spoke to generations of kids and adults.  They made people who never read pick up books.

Q: What other books affected your life?

Nicki: I read books about strong women growing up…Amelia Earhart, Florence Nightingale.  They made me believe in equality of the sexes, that anything was possible.  

Q: What book would you most want your children to read?

Nicki: I’ve made sure my kids have copies of The Little Prince.  I think it’s a great story about life and what truly matters.

Thanks for sharing your good reads Nicki!

Nicki (@thenicknick) has lived in Charlotte, North Carolina with her children for the past eight years, and once again, with her fiance in The Bubble. Her time of self-improvement and self-discovery has barely begun. Every day of her life seems to bring new adventures, some bigger, better, shinier and prettier than others. She’s still getting used to that new life smell she’s experiencing, a combination of hope, love, and happiness. (The perfect scents to build a new life on…)
