About this author

Nicole was born in the suburban farm country of upstate New York, and began writing at a very early age. Of course, her early works consisted mainly of poems about rainbows and unicorns, although one of them was good enough to win honorable mention in a national poetry contest! (Perhaps one of the judges was a ten-year-old girl.) Throughout high school, her creative writing was always nurtured and encouraged.

Sometimes it's a matter of just keeping my butt in the chair and my fingers glued to the keyboard to push through a wall. But occasionally, I really have written myself into a corner or have a real plot problem and in those situations it's usually best to step away from the keyboard. I'll do something like go on a long drive, bake something, paint something, cut up magazines and make collages...anything to occupy the front part of my brain so my subconscious is free to work on the problem. I'll also call up my critique partners to talk it out. Sometimes when you verbalize it, it's easier to see a solution. I also use my husband. He's a great brainstormer! (less)

I live a charmed life.

Well, not really. I have my ups and downs like everybody else, and I've had to climb over many hurdles on my road to publication.

But right now, in this moment, I have everything I could possibly want, or need.

Right now, I'm sitting at my kitchen table while my daughter sings and dances in a circle, waving a blue crayon around. One of my cats is perched next to my computer... Read more of this blog post »
