Hello there – I’m Niki Becker, AKA Ashley Nemer. While this wasn’t my first work of fiction as Niki this was my favorite. I have never enjoyed writing a story so much as this one. I’m not sure if it was the fact that as ‘Niki’ I’m more free, or if it was simply the subject matter. Niki is a true outlet of freedom for me. She gives me the biggest feeling of satisfaction because I find her ability to fulfill even my own dreams, a reality.
One thing you don’t know about me is that even though I write quite detailed scenes (either graphic in sexual content or graphic in violence) I am really quite shy. I don’t like all of that out in the open and it makes me uncomfortable around large groups of people. Not saying I’m a prude just, considerate. As Niki, that feeling and need goes away and my true inner-self is set free onto the world!
Another thing I think that helps me while writing as Niki is that I always wanted to change my name to that as a child. I was so mad that everyone at school was named Ashley and I had nothing unique about me. So now, I guess I have finally changed my name and helped develop a personality that keeps everything lively and entertaining in my writing.
I hope that you like Special Assignment. Here is a little tid bit of a fun fact you won’t know unless I tell you. The brother Justin – is named after and based loosely on my old friend from High School. He found out that I had one character already in my writing about one of our friends and wanted one about him. So man I gave him a doozy! Another tid bit – the victim in the story (there are two) both come from real people I know. One a best friend/family member and another a girl from high school that I happened to see her name in my Facebook ticker and was like, Ah HA!
Guess that’s a valued lesson to learn – if you are on my friends list and I’m in need of a name – better stop posting or you could end up inside one of my books!
Happy reading and again – I hope you love Special Assignment. And please don’t be shy…shoot me an email and tell me what your thoughts!

Niki Becker is the pen name for Ashley Nemer.
Ashley is married and lives in Houston with her husband Tony. They have two dogs named Toto and Doogie. They have been together for almost 8 years and he brings her more joy than she could ever imagine as a child. She loves to read and has been hooked on the romance genre ever since her lifelong best friend Laura gave her “Ashes to Ashes’ by Tami Hoag to read when they were younger.
Ashley finds her strength through her family, especially her parents. They always support her in life, they push her to strive for greatness. There once was a motto that Ashley heard in her youth through her Taekwondo life ‘Reach for the Stars’ and that is what Ashley has always done. It was through her upbringing that the values Ashley has and display’s came from. With her Parents always cheering her on in life she was able to grow up having faith in herself and her ability to conquer the world.
