From Onalee Nicklin:
I live in the woods, by a creek, in between Olpe and Madison, with my husband and a couple of cats. I have written and illustrated a children's picture book (To Hide a Hazelnut) that was recently published by Meadowlark Press. That gave me the courage to undertake writing a novel. It's called Wild Wood Rose and is loosely based on the fairytale, Little Red Riding Hood. I hope to get it published, but I'm sure it still needs some tweaking. As I learn more about the craft of writing, I plan to write more kids books and novels.
Editor's Note: Onalee Nicklin also received a KANSAS NOTABLE AWARD in 2022 as the illustrator for the children's book "Ava: A Year of Adventure in the Life of an American Avocet" written by Mandy Kern.
