• Nikki Shannon Smith is from Oakland, California, but she now lives
    in Davis, CA with her husband and two children. She has worked in
    elementary education for over twenty-five years, and writes everything from
    picture books to young adult novels. Nikki has eleven published books, including The Little Christmas
    Elf, Treasure Hunt, A Star Like Jesse Owens, and four books in Capstone’s Girls Survive Series. Three titles in her Azaleah Lane chapter book series are now available: The Amazing Life of Azaleah Lane, The Dramatic Life of Azaleah Lane, and The Scrumptious Life of Azaleah Lane. When she’s not busy with
    family, work, or writing, she loves to visit the coast. The first thing she
    packs in her suitcase is always a book.
