Nicole Andrew Moore Hiding out Blog tour


Samuel Davenport runs his family's New York based advertising agency. His  brother, Adam, runs from responsibility and anything remotely boring. And his  temp, Haley, runs so she'll never be caught and hurt again. She moved to the
city New Year's Day to hide and recover, to build a new life far from her past.  In an effort to lie low, Haley never expects to be more than a temp. What begins  for Sam as an excuse to get to know her better, ends up being an opportunity for
advancement and excitement for Haley. When Sam tries to uncover all of Haley's  mysteries, he exposes her hiding place, endangers her life, and threatens to  destroy any chance of them ever having a future together

                        About the author


Nicki has lived in Charlotte, North Carolina with her children for the past  eleven years and her husband for the past two and a half. Her journey has barely  begun and she's loving every minute of it. Every day of her life seems to bring  new adventures, some bigger, better, shinier and prettier than others. She's  still getting used to that new life smell she's experiencing, a combination of  hope, love, and happiness. (The perfect scents to build a new life on...)

For fun, she spends time with those she cares about, cooks, reads, writes,  and especially lives to travel. The current travel goal: visit every  Margaritaville. Two down! (Eleven to go?)

In addition to writing on Suddenly Single Journey, Nicki blogs at What  Dreamers Do. Her writing can also be found on Shine, where she is a Shine  Parenting Guru and an award winning Yahoo! Contributor on YourWisdom as the  relationship and dating expert. And she has been published by McClatchy News in  their syndicated papers.
Her books can be found on Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

"How  have the places you've lived influenced
                       your writing?

The  story I’m telling always becomes more real when I know the place I’m writing
about.  Because of that, every story I’ve written takes place, for the most  part, in places I’ve lived or visited.  That’s also part of what makes  writing them fun for me.  It’s like taking a vacation or painting a picture  from my memory.

First A  Dream  starts out in my hometown of Plattsburgh, New York located in the
Adirondacks.  It’s a nice quiet college town that used to be home to a large Air Force Base prior to its closure.  Growing up there was  lovely.  The running joke about the weather has always been that the area  has ten months of winter and two months of bad skiing.  And because we were  located a quick twenty minute drive from the Canadian border, where the drinking  age was eighteen, my friends and I may have spent a great deal of time in  Montreal on the weekends where there was always some club where we could dance  and flirt and drink.  This is why Gabriel, Bella’s more sophisticated and  worldly love interest, lived in Montreal.

It  wasn’t a bad life, but the cold made it easy for me to move south to Charlotte,
North Carolina.  There is plenty to love about the south and Charlotte in  particular.  This is where Sugar Daddy takes place…in Charlotte and  just north of the city in Lake Norman.  This is also why the newest series,  set in the fictional town of New Hope, South Carolina is located a short drive  from Charlotte.  In Stormy Surrender, Marti and Joe go to Charlotte  often.  And because my hometown was just across Lake Champlain from  Burlington, Vermont, those areas show up in a couple of books, too.  Marti  moves from Burlington to New Hope. 

The  bulk of Worth the Wait takes place in Burlington, Vermont.  Brian  lives in a loft created from a converted mill, just like a guy I used to know  did.  Sarah lived in a big old farmhouse, just like someone I used to  know.  They traveled to Myrtle Beach for vacations.  That is a  location that seems really exotic to anyone who isn’t so spoiled as we  are.  For us, Myrtle Beach is a day trip.  Myrtle Beach is where my  husband and I took our first couple trip.  It’s our go to spot to soothe  our souls. 

Many  places that mean anything to me show up in my writing…the little place on the
corner in Myrtle Beach where we buy homemade fries and the occasional Chicken wings.  I suppose that part of me hopes that sometimes someone reading will
know the place like I do, or maybe that the person will one day visit and Myrtle
Beach and think...huh, this is the place where that happened in the  book!  I want readers to be able to connect with what they are  reading.
