Nicole Maggi

Goodreads Author

in Poughkeepsie, NY, The United States




Member Since
March 2011

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.

Nicole attended Emerson College as an acting major, and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Post-college, she worked as an actress in New York City for over a decade, focusing mainly on Shakespeare and the classics.

Now living in Los Angeles, Nicole balances writing full-time with motherhood. WINTER FALLS, the first

I did have input on my cover and I was fortunate that my publisher listened to my input. The first version of the cover I was presented with was really wrong for the book and it was about a 5-month process from there to get it to where everyone was happy. I think the key was communicating clearly and firmly why that original cover wasn't right for the book, and having my agent involved from the get-go to back me up. In my mind, the girl in the red coat is Mellie, because she's carrying the journal with the pages falling out, and it's kind of symbolic of how it's only with Lise that she can show some of the secrets her journal contains. Plus, her coat is what I like to think of as "Handmaid's Red." :-)(less)

I grew up a little more downstate than Binghamton...I grew up in the Hudson Valley, not far from Poughkeepsie. So many people only think of NYC when they think of New York, right? They don't realize how big the state is and how beautiful upstate is. I love the Hudson Valley so much...I got married there, and still miss it a lot now that I live in LA, especially during apple-picking season! Hope the winter is treating you well...THAT I don't miss, LOL!(less)
