Hello! I'm Nicole Rubino, author of Something Wicked, the first in a four-book series about witches, witch hunters, and everything in between!

I fondly remember Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach as the first book that took me on an adventure, and so, I fell in love with reading and writing fantasy. Another one of my favorite books by Dahl should come as no surprise: The Witches.

My equal love for history propelled me to dive further into the witch hunts throughout Europe and the witch hunts in Salem, which is where I got the idea for my debut novel.

Authors I love and whom inspire me are Leigh Bardugo, Holly Black, Sarah J. Maas, Jay Kristoff and Pierce Brown.

Particularly, I wanted to understand why these young women took to accusing their fellow neighbors. Because, after all, they were just young girls. How could they have benefited from sending people to their death? I researched countless articles - socio-economic, historical, and psychological - that all offered explanations to why the Witch Trials might have unfolded the way they did, but nothing offered an explanation as to the motive behind these young women.

So, I decided to write my own explanation, and in doing so, found a world of murder, mayhem, and magic. Thus, SOMETHING WICKED was born.(less)

My Top 10 Spooky/Witchy Reads for the Halloween Season

As soon as October 1st hits, I dive right into spooky season. Oh, who am I kidding? As soon as the Fall Equinox hits, I dive right into spooky season. There are those who try to cling on to summer for as long as they possibly can, and I admit with absolutely no regret that I am definitely not one of them. (I lose interest in summer right after my July 10th birthday).
 
Now, Halloween is fast appro

I read A Touch of Darkness and not only did I love it, but was completely infatuated with Hades as a character, even more so than Persephone. So when I saw this book was ATOD told from Hades POV, I hit download IMMEDIATELY. And I was NOT disappointed ...more
