Niko loves books. She loves to read them, to write them, to have them and to make them for other people. Much of her non-writing art ends up in book form, though some of it is in allied media like letterpress printing, relief printmaking, lithography, intaglio printmaking and photography. She also writes and draws comics. She has gone back to school more times than is probably good for her, and earned assorted degrees in archaeology, writing, visual art, and folklore. Niko's dayjob is freelance non-fiction writing, mostly about popular culture (especially videogames).
