My Adventure in the US Navy and the world

The author behind The Keys to the Seachest: Adventures in the US Navy

USS Shoup, US Navy memoir, US Navy story, military sexual trauma, The Keys to the Seachest

Nicole, the author, has lived everywhere, from Washington State, to Chicago, St Louis, Pittsburgh, the deep South, as well as Southern California, and Northern Wyoming.

In her life she has commissioned a US Navy ship, painted murals, painted hotels, as well as was a sailor, a Damage Controlman or naval fire fighter and was a wildland firefighter as well.  She has written books, written for a newspaper, and has escaped death too many times to count.

She is a recluse; an introvert who likes people, but hates crowds; an artist, writer, poet, and extremely happily married mother and wife.  She enjoys reading, writing, working on websites, creating art, cooking gourmet meals, and living a quiet life with the one’s she loves.
