About Nikki Lewen

The Sage in the Forest

Nikki Lewen was a long-time secretive writer. It wasn’t until the publication of her first book in the Three Sisters Trilogy that she exposed her hidden talent. Besides a fondness for writing and reading, Nikki maintains an active lifestyle and is usually found outdoors. If you know when and where to look ;)


Nikki splits her time living between two remote and distinctively different locations - Neither of which make staying connected easy. She has a small cabin nestled in the redwood-covered mountains of Northern California. It was here, in her mountain home, that her trilogy was born and brought to life.

When not among the trees and giant ferns, Nikki can be found south of the U.S. border where she happily resides in a small fishing village. The oceanside pueblo she also calls home doesn't even have traditional power. The town runs a generator for certain hours each day to supply the needed electricity.


Eco-minded in all matters, Nikki strives for a zero-waste lifestyle, finding pure joy knowing her fictional trilogy inspires those who before didn’t consider a greener path. Nikki is also a fanatic surfer who spends countless hours out in the waves. Her husband often jokes that “if I want to see me wife, I have to paddle out.” Although this often gets a laugh from others, he’s deadly serious.

THREE SISTERS TRILOGY

Action-Adventure, Post-Apocalyptic, Cli-Fi 

Featuring strong, affable characters

I am extremely proud and excited to share my debut fictional series: The Three Sisters Trilogy. The project might have been a lengthy one (almost nine years in the making), but this was one story that really needed to be told. The characters, dialogues, and settings came to me so thoroughly and completely that it occupied my mind, taking me hostage until it was written and shared. Now that I’ve regained my freedom, I intend to spread its message of sustainability, of working together, of fighting against injustices.


The Three Sisters Trilogy was self-published after a traditional agent, who was interested in my manuscript for both book and film, decided to no longer work with me due to my complete absence from social media. I rarely have access to WiFi, I live and often travel remotely, and quite honestly, I love being “off-grid.” Despite my digitally-challenged lifestyle, I forged ahead anyway. Since publication, I have received the Readers' Favorite 5 Stars Award and was featured at a sold-out event at the National John Steinbeck Center.

Three Sisters: A Tale of Survival

Three Sisters Trilogy Book 1

“Raw storytelling and textured characters that take risk and get rewarded.”

“It’s Tomb Raider meets Lord of the Flies with all the good aspects of Water World sprinkled in.”

If you run into a survivor, they’ll tell you about the day the Enders crashed upon the world’s shores.

Sadie Larkin survived. She escaped the global catastrophe and violent chaos by venturing back to her childhood home in the old growth forest in the mountains by the sea. She dug in deep among the fallen redwoods and those that still stood.

Solitude. Survival. Ten years hunting. Ten years of unanswered questions. 

With fate on her side, Sadie runs into someone from her past. He’s been badly beaten, lies unconscious and is nearly dead. Through this man, she learns the horrible truth—the Splitter Nation has arrived. And they’re on her front doorstep! 

Sadie grabs her bow—and ends up saving much more than just one man.

But as long as Sadie Larkin still has her crossbow, they've got an enemy.

Sadie commandeers a ship and recruits a team of commandos and civilians to breach the island and fight for good in a world of evil. She battles with wit and bow to free the children of the Isle of Big Sur.

Will Sadie find the strength to defeat the Commander and stop the Splitter Nation from destroying all light in the new world?

                  What Readers Are Saying

“Author Nikki Lewen dedicates the third and final book, Three Sisters, from her trilogy, “to all those who fight injustice, who put others before themselves, and who take action for the planet.” I was struck by her effective application of ethos, pathos, and logos as readers find themselves pulling for the self-sacrificing, intelligent, female protagonist and her social justice warriors. The plot twists are always clever in her entire series, and there had to be extensive research to build credibility in the rising action that keeps readers glued to the pages. Romance, conflict, morality, fear, and a passionate respect to save the environment are at the heart of this book.

Loved Three Sisters and the series!”

Eco-Conscious & Balanced Living

Reduce. Reuse. Reuse. Reuse. Reuse. Then Recyle.

Nikki Lewen has always been drawn to the outdoors. Camping, hiking, backpacking, surfing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming. Basically anything outdoors and you can count her in! Her appreciation for the world's natural playgrounds coincides with a passion for protecting and preserving these spaces for future generations. She views balanced living as a lifestyle that neither harms nor threatens natural order.

The Three Sisters Trilogy was written in part to pay homeage to her beloved redwoods and some of California's most treasured natural wonders; such as Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, and Big Sur.

Nikki supports, volunteers, and donates to a wide variety of non-profits in an effort to protect and promote environmental sustainability. Some of her favorite groups include Save Our Shores, Save the Redwoods League, and the Surfrider Foundation.

Thanks for visiting my author website! Get in touch to discover more about my writing or to schedule a reading, interview, book club event, appearance, podcast, etc. Please be advised: I often disappear off grid. I also live remotely without Wi-Fi access and cell phone service.


In order to connect from my mountain home, I have to drive 20-30 minutes to where I can get a signal and then work from my vechicle. When I'm in my south of the border home, I can only connect when the town's generator is running. But when I have access, I will reply. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
