Nikki Trionfo lives in Utah with five kids, a CrossFit-training husband who writes computer code, and lots of hip hop background music. Her teen murder mystery Shatter won first place in the League of Utah Writers YA manuscript contest. Alongside Heather Clark, she hosts free writing webinars on YouTube at #50FirstChapters. A committed party-girl, Nikki serves as director of public relations for Storymakers Conference, the largest writing conference in Utah. Other notable stuff includes an honorable mention in Writers of the Future and several stories in romance and (separately!) horror anthologies. This all sounds really serious, but if you run into her, she gets down.
