Nikki M. Mascali is an accomplished writer. She is a native of Northeastern Pennsylvania, where she was a longtime journalist and editor at an arts and entertainment weekly newspaper. During her time there, she interviewed everyone from Gene Simmons to Richard Simmons — and once spent an hour-and-a-half on the phone with Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Paul O'Neill, who, when asked if TSO would ever play an outdoor show, gave this delicious answer: "Our lasers could blind a pilot, Nikki."Additionally, she has worked as a financial writer and as a freelance copy editor and music writer.In her spare time, Nikki is an avid journaler and blogger, foodie, Instagrammer and wanna-be bon vivant who truly loves being a New Yorker. She’s walked more than 500 miles around the island of Manhattan in the first six months of 2014 alone and, like any good lifelong writer, she has ink for blood — and the tattoo and blog name to prove it.
