Nikki Loftin is a writer and native Texan who lives just outside Austin, Texas, surrounded by dogs, chickens, and small, loud boys. Her debut middle-grade novel, THE SINISTER SWEETNESS OF SPLENDID ACADEMY, was published by Razorbill (Penguin) in 2012. Her next MG novel, Nightingale's Nest, will appear in early 2014.
Nikki studied literary fiction at the University of Texas at Austin graduate writing program (MA, ‘98), but it wasn’t until she became a teacher that she found her true calling: working with and writing for kids. Her short children’s fiction has appeared in Boy’s Life and Pockets, as well as in print anthologies and online magazines.
