Born and raised in the Northern Virginia, Nikita Jakz has always loved to write, but it wasn't until her preteen years that she fell hard for all things romantic and paranormal. She could thank Lestat for that one, as well as for her new-found love of reading. With sci-fi fanatics, literary teachers and writers in her family, it shouldn't have been a surprise. Waiting tables and bar-tending after high school, she worked hard to earn a degree in Electronic Graphic Design. It was during this period of time that she met her husband. Together they've built their crazy life together, ushering in four equally crazy children to enjoy it with. As a stay-at-home-mom she's quickly become, along with the masses, sucked into the insane world of pop-culture 'vampire love' and she couldn't be more thrilled. First came the book forums, then came the role play groups, which ultimately led her to become a fervent online independent writer. With a couple of her favorite writing partners, she endeavors to share with the world her beloved stories of love, adventure and supernatural wonderment.

Hope grew up in a small resort area in Michigan where she and her husband still live today. As the third child of four, she had an exhaustive imagination. From straddling the back porch railing as a wild cowgirl, to saving the world as Wonder Woman complete with homemade bullet stopping bracelets, she was always taking what she read and making it as real as she could.
Love of reading began at an early age, due to a first grade teacher living next door, and her own father reading bible stories to her before bed each night. It was cemented in elementary when she discovered scholastic books, specifically Marguerite Henry’s Misty of Chincoteague. Her love of horses and reading has never diminished, even after her husband took her to Chincoteague Island for their honeymoon. She has penned several short stories and authored a newsletter for a past employer, as well as establishing a book/movie based program for local Girl Scouts.
Finding her a true comrade in Alicia Dawn (we swear our husbands are brothers from different mothers), Hope forged on an adventure in Role Playing that continued to feed her imagination till it become a living thing. With Alicia’s encouragement, they turned their friendship into a writing partnership that will last well beyond the Magical Forces series.
The mother of two daughters, she has always tried to instill the love of reading into their lives. As such, her youngest makes monthly trips to the local library’s book sale to look for her favorites, and help her mother find treasures of her own, much to her father’s dismay. With a grandbaby on the way, she will continue to instill the love of reading into her grandson’s life sharing treasured stories
