Nikki DeMarco

Nikki DeMarco is an English teacher in Richmond, Virginia, which is much more charming than she remembers it. Upon moving back, she adopted the cutest, grumpiest Yorkie and took up yoga. She spent her formative adult years living in Italy and Germany, and blames the Mediterranean culture for her ironic hatred of self-righteousness. She has her MFA in creative writing with a concentration in non-fiction. You can find her on all social media, and especially Twitter. Twitter: @nikkilooch
