About Niki

I grew up in Johannesburg, but now live in Los Angeles and am currently the Managing Editor for SoCal Magazine. My writings have been published in More Magazine, Laguna Beach Independent, Aspen Times, LA Fashion Magazine, StuNews, and SoCal Magazine. My first memoir, Hell Camp, won me 2x eLit awards, a chance to read at the LA Times festival of books, and the Book Trailer won the 2017 Global Trailer Film Festival. Hell Camp is in development for the big screen (see IMDB link below for more info). My second memoir, Helter Shelter is out now and I’m working on a third. I’m also a musician with three CDs released and my music has been used in radio/TV commercials, TV shows and movies.
