Desiring to make her creative and rousing thoughts known to the world, Molly Odegard Nikolic was inspired to become a writer. She was first published when she won first place in a worldwide contest for her essay on preserving the Serbian language, and loved the feelings the experience stirred. Since then, she has continued to grow in the field, finding that she enjoys writing about topics that are going to teach people using subjects like World War II as reminders of life. She aims to be as honest as possible in her work.
With those tenets in mind, Ms. Odegard Nikolic set out to make her dreams a reality. She has since authored three books through the company, Publish America, First Books: “Incidents of Life,” “Yesterday Dawns Today,” and, most recently, “The Wings of Destiny.” Her latest publication, released in early 2017, features an actress navigating her professional career. A gourmet cook, Ms. Odegard Nikolic also wrote the cookbook, “Ethnic Cooking,” for the Wisconsin Cancer Society in 1982. Further, she completed the well-known National Novel Writing Month internet-based creative writing project, also known as NaNoWriMo, in 2012. The project asks participants to write a 50,000-word manuscript in one month.
Ever passionate about learning, growing, and exhibiting her knowledge through her books, Ms. Odegard Nikolic continues to strive for excellence in every endeavor and remains dedicated to enticing and pleasing her readers. She is looking forward to a bright future.
When Ms. Odegard Nikolic is not writing, she partakes in hobbies like cooking, gardening, film, entertaining, and dinner parties. She also likes to be involved with her community; she is affiliated with the Veterans of Foreign War, Habitat for Humanity, and Phi Beta, the national professional fraternity for creative and performing arts. Additionally, she has worked as an extra in many films shot in her area.
Ms. Odegard Nikolic prepared for her career by earning a Bachelor of Arts in history from Edgewood College in Madison, Wis., in 1976.
