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 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)

That is so cool that you & your BFF have names relating to WINTER FALLS! I spend a lot of time searching for the perfect name for my characters. (It's actually one of my favorite ways to procrastinate, LOL!) Because of Alessia's Italian heritage, I knew I wanted her name to be Italian. So I started by researching Italian names. I also pay close attention to the meanings of names. When I saw that Alessia means "defender" I just knew it was the perfect name because of her duty as a Benandante to protect the magic in Twin Willows. I came up with the town name because I wanted the name to reflect the two landmarks that mark the borders, and I wanted those landmarks to be something in nature. I love willow trees...which incidentally symbolize inner visions and dreams. ;-) Thank you so much for your excellent question and for your interest in WINTER FALLS!(less)

Sherry Thank you Nichole for accepting my friends request. Winter Falls was Excellent! I couldn't stop reading this book, it grabs hold of you and won't let go. I was thinking about this book even when I wasn't reading it, that I think is a sign of good writing. See the book at http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/Winter.... I'm looking forward to starting book 2. Thank you again Sher


Nicole Thank you! I am running a giveaway for an advance copy of WINTER FALLS right now so you have a chance to read it early! :-) But don't worry, December and February will be here before you know it! :-)
