Featured Interview With NIKI J. NORLOCK
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am half free spirit – half control freak. I love adventure; traveling, exploring, learning and creation are my favorite pass-times. I curently live in Mexico, near Lake Chapala, but was raised in a small village in Ontario Canada. My school days were spent in that village home with my parents but my summers were spent in the Northern Ontario bushland with my Grandmother. My education was… eclectic. I am ridiculously proud of my daughter and her wife for the women they have grown into and the work that they do. I currently live with two men, my business partner and my driver. Between us we have 4 dogs. I would describe my life as organized Chaos.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
My mother claimed that I was born with a pen in my hand. She has passed on now, but she told people often that I began writing poetry at age 3. I of course do not remember this but I was the only kid in the county with a subscription to National Geographic. I remember, I was reading the adult versions of books like ‘Little Women’ and ‘Treasure Island’ by the time I was 7 or 8.
I guess, I was just born to write, that is why some of my friends jokingly call me ‘the pen’.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favorite author is J.R. Tolkien. I prefer to read fantasy/fiction as it relaxes me. I feel more at home in a world full of elves, kender and wizards than I do in a world full of humans.
Speaking of humans… they inspire all of my writing. I may not like humans very much at times, but I do certainly find them fascinating.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book is the original book in what is now being written and released as a five book series. I didn’t plan on it, but here we are. It is also the book that describes the journey that inspired me to produce a documentary in the Philippines. Magical people Filipinos are, absolutely magical. They completely changed my life. I will be forever grateful for the lessons learned there about love, faith and family.
The title – ‘Truth – My Synchromystic Journey ‘ is only the beginning of the strange story that was documented within it’s pages. It can be seen as an entertaining story or as a profound glimpse into the unknown. I am currently writing the last 4 books while touring around Mexico on the back of a moto, filming.it for future mini- docus. You can follow my antics on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. Just look for Niki J. Norlock or Feenxrising, I am sure to pop up.
The book can be found on Amazon.
