Nicole MacDonald is the Independent author of The Arrival, and, Awakening, the first two books in the BirthRight Trilogy. Writing had never been a life long dream for her but it now is an all consuming passion.
A proud Kiwi (New Zealander) Nicole dreams that one day Peter Jackson will be in touch to option the film rights for the BirthRight Trilogy. When she's not daydreaming about that she's working on book three in the trilogy--Feel the Burn, available December 2012--and planning future works.
You can keep up with her writing at or on the BirthRight Trilogy's facebook page.

This has been a long time in the making, but I'm delighted to be able to annouce that the trilogy is now available as an e-book set on Amazon! For the opening month it is at a special price of just .99c. This is the final re-written version of each book - the same as the paperback - so those of you with older copies, you might want to consider grabbing it :) There were some major changes made t...

“They said you’re an Elemental. You don’t look like an Elemental, more like a cheap maid from Slemnask.' She spat the words out, the inference obvious. My rational voice had a field day while I observed her costume; a belt for a skirt and a belt for a top. 'Pot, meet kettle,' I replied in a pleasant tone.”
Nicole MacDonald, The Arrival

“Soldiers and allies of Elion, denizens of Gar’nyse, today we gather to do battle. Today we make a stand for those who can’t, for the innocent lives snatched, for those who stood against her and lost. For our loved ones in far away realms. I can’t guarantee any of us will make it home, but I can promise that victory will protect those loved ones and realms we left behind. Freedom from tyranny is a luxury few on Gar’nyse know. Here today we make a stand against the tyrant. Against those who desire to possess our world. Whether we rise or fall, all will know of this battle, of this stand we make. We will shake the ground. We will topple the castle and we will bring about the end of the DeNaga line!”
Nicole MacDonald, Feel the Burn
