Nikki Moustaki, Contributor to BIRD TALK Magazine,

With a multitude of books in print and hundreds of articles on pets and their care and training to her credit, Nikki Moustaki is considered one of the country's leading pet experts. She is an award-winning freelance writer, animal trainer and pet-industry expert. She works to feed shelter pets with her innovative website, The Pet Postcard Project.

She has published more than 42 books of nonfiction, primarily on the care and training of pets. Her pet books and articles have been translated into five languages. Along with working as a dog trainer, Moustaki is an expert on parrots, having authored more than 25 books on birds and their care and training. She has been writing for BIRD TALK Magazine since the 1990s.

Moustaki currently hosts a pet-related cable show on The Beach Channel in Miami Beach, and she hosted, co-produced and co-wrote the national NBC/MSN show, The Celebrity Pet Dish, with her Miniature Schnauzer, Pepper, as her co-host. She also writes a weekly blog for called MUTTerings.

Moustaki’s two primary interests  –  writing and animals – come together in her work, allowing her to travel through both the landscape of the literary writer and the interesting world of the pet industry.

Moustaki holds an M.A. in creative writing from New York University, an M.F.A. in creative writing from Indiana University, and an M.F.A. in creative writing from NYU. She is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant in poetry, and has been awarded many national prizes and honors for her writing.

Moustaki splits her time between New York City and Miami Beach with her two rescued Schnauzers, Pepper and Zoey, and one rescued Schnoodle named Pearl.
