My name is Nicole but I write under the name Illi Nieve (Knox). I have been writing since I was about 13 yrs old (journaling/stories) and found poetry in school when I was about 15 and have been going ever since. I am a sister, an auntie, a godmother (to 3) and I also have Crohn’s Disease in which I was diagnosed when I was 14. My debut poetry book Black Canvas is available on limited release and I am working on remastering it into a series. I tend to write about my life and the things that I experience. Most of it is things that I have been to afraid to speak on. I’m rambling, enjoy the reading!
