About

I was born in England but now live in Adelaide, South Australia. I have loved both reading and writing from a young age and am also a keen linguist, having studied several foreign languages.
 
I launched my writing career in 2011, and you can read more about my current releases on the publications pages for my two pen names: Nicki J Markus and Asta Idonea.

I have worked as an editor and proofreader since 2012. Please visit my Editing Website to learn more.

When not writing and editing, I enjoy many other pursuits such as reading, music, theatre, cinema, photography, sketching, and cross stitch. I also have a keen interest in history, folklore and mythology, pen-palling, and travel. Not to mention the fact that I am a rabid fangirl. Alongside my original stories, I do pen the occasional fanfic, and anyone interested can find them on AO3.
