When Nikki isn't writing, she loves to cook, and she plays guitar and sings with her own soul-rock band, The Nikki O'Neill Band (her maiden name.) She's a very popular guitar instructor, who's taught at universities and lead international clinics. She's currently writing a rock guitar instruction book for Alfred Music Publishing, scheduled to be released in 2011.
She lives with her husband in Playa del Rey.
