About Ticka

Ticka C. Bates graduated from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2004 with a degree in Music Education and in 2016 from Utah State University with a Masters in Elementary Education. As an elementary music teacher, Ticka delighted in educating her young students about music history. Discovering that a room full of rambunctious five-year-old children would listen to a long story about a composer if it was told just right, she began to seriously consider writing fiction with a music influence. After four years of researching Sodus Point, dissecting her mother’s piano, researching various legends and fairytales, and quoting Wordsworth, Ticka presented her debut novel, THE BEAST, in 2012. She plans to release her next novel late in 2018.
