Nike Chillemi started writing at a very young age. She
still has the Crayola, fully illustrated book she penned (colored might be more
accurate) as a little girl about her then off-the-chart love of horses. Today,
you might call her a crime fictionista. Her passion is crime fiction. She likes
her bad guys really bad and her good guys smarter and better.
Nike is the founding board member of the Grace Awards
and is its Chairman, a reader's choice awards for excellence in Christian fiction.
She writes book reviews for The Christian Pulse online magazine. She was an
Inspy Awards 2010 judge in the Suspense/Thriller/Mystery category, a judge in
the 2011, 2012, and 2013 Carol Awards in the suspense, mystery, and romantic
suspense categories, and a judge in the Eric Hoffer Awards in 2012 and 2013.
Her four novel Sanctuary Point series, set in the
mid-1940s has won awards and garnered critical acclaim. Her new contemporary
whodunit, HARMFUL INTENT released in the spring of 2014 under the auspices of
her own publishing company, Crime Fictionista Press. She is a member of
American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and Christian Indie Novelists (CHIN).
Nike loves animals, the ocean and is a
healthy-eating foodie…these themes show up in her novels. http://nikechillemi.wordpress.com/
