Nico J. Genes was born in Romania during communist time in a lovely family with caring parents that helped her, her two sisters and brother had a normal childhood, despite the prevailing harsh system at the time. They encouraged them all to study and to have a better life. From the young age it became clear to Nico that if she wanted more from the life she needed to work hard and pursue her plans. The first time she felt the need to write was when she was the teenager, but finishing studies seemed to have the priority. So she got her master degree in Economics and, up to that point it seemed that her life wasn’t much out of the ordinary. But then everything suddenly started to change. Her life became more out of the ordinary: she experienced living in three countries (Romania, Croatia, Slovenia), learned the languages, traveled, met lots of interesting and different people who helped her have a wider view upon many life issues.
In time she gathered so many thoughts and topics that she felt the urge to write about them, but there was always lack of time. After almost 16 successful years of working in marketing, facing some health issues, she had to quit her dream job in cosmetic industry. It was then when she realized that her future should take a different course. Having more time for herself, family and friends she felt that writing and helping people is what fulfills her the most. Finally there wasn’t anything or anyone coming in her way. So she started a new adventure, as an author.
Her first book Magnetic Reverie, published in May 2017, was written on the magical coast of the Adriatic sea in the beautiful city of Šibenik, Croatia. As she had the time and felt the need to speak to the whole world she started doing so through her first book. The main message wrapped up subtly in the romantic novel is to help awaken anyone that still has any prejudices regarding non-traditional relationships.
Besides the novel writing, she is also running a blog where she talks about life issues, trying to be the friend that most everyone would need at a certain point in their life. Two of her blogs have been chosen to be included in an anthology of short stories and poetry called Limitless, to be released in October 2017 as a charity project, to help the victims of war in the Middle East.
Searching continuously her purpose in life Nico feels that she finally found hers. Therefore in the future she is planning to continue her novel writing. Additionally in parallel through her blog she wishes to get closer to people and inspire them. Who knows, maybe even helping somebody else discovering his/her purpose.
When she is not writing, she loves to read, travel, spending time with family and friends, listening to them and make them smile.
Currently she is living in Slovenia and she is working on her second book.
Her motto: We are all different and it’s OK!
