Writer | Traveler | Good Vibes Giver
Karla Nikole has a long-standing love affair with Japan. They have always been very good to each other. Having lived in the country for two years and taken several extended vacations there, she is deeply inspired by the culture, language, landscape, food and people. A trip to Italy in 2018 for a wedding (pictured below) breathed new fire into her writing, eventually leading to the birth of Nino Bianchi and Haruka Hirano: two love letters to these beautiful countries. She has also lived in South Korea, Prague and currently resides in the USA (although Milan is adamantly calling out to her).
Lore and Lust has been proudly featured in Rainbow Crate Book Box and Pride Book Crate. Karla Nikole was also asked to hold a panel for FujoCon 2021, where she discussed Living in Japan and Respecting Cultures in Stories. Currently, the series is available in-store at multiple Barnes & Noble locations across the US, and can be purchased online anywhere books are sold.
