Nicola Niemc began writing Tangerine Seventeen in her early twenties, along with a now-abandoned tale of time-travel and sorcery (maybe, one day...). She was encouraged to continue Tangerine by a few select individuals in the office she worked in before the idea behind Addicted to Love began to take root.
She has now returned to her first love of medieval-style sorcery, with a dash of forbidden romance thrown in. Visit her website for more clues as to where this may yet lead...
Influences: David Bowie, for making it ok to be freaky. Robert Palmer - the inspiration behind 'Addicted', and the one who gave me unrealistic expectations of what a gentleman should be like. Richard Brautigan, for glass coffins, watermelon sugar and the freedom to write crazy, if that's what your mind is telling you to. Do I have a hunch about what I'm talking about? No, it's just the way my coats rides up at the back.
