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)

I came in as a transfer in winter of 2009. I was a psychology major, and got my Bachelor's degree in science, so I took alot of psych and science classes!

The book has a lot of psychological elements in it because of that. :) (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 app...

Nicole Rubino is on page 68 of 473 of Aurora Rising: Oh my goodness this is SO much fun!

“But wait, wait a minute, ladies and gentlemen and everyone both otherwise or in between. We have a new contender for Fact of the Century. All other facts, please step aside.

Fact: Though the frosted glass obscures all the interesting details, there can be no doubt about it. My mystery man is not currently in the possession of pants.”
