I'm Nicole Willson, an author of horror and dark fantasy fiction. My debut novel Tidepool was a Bram Stoker Award finalist for Superior Achievement in a First Novel. A Spanish translation is available from Dilatando Mentes Editorial. My novella The Shadow Dancers of Brixton Hill will be coming from Cemetery Gates Media in June 2023, and my YA horror novel The Keeper of the Key is forthcoming in Fall 2024.
I'm a frequent contributor to the Medium.com flash fiction challenge Hinged (formerly The Weekly Knob). Below, you'll find links to some of my favorite stories.

Your Friend 'Til the End
Teddy comes into your life one Christmas morning, or maybe on your birthday. You can’t remember which one, and it’s not important. What matters is that he’s yours. And just as the red ribbon around his neck says, he is your friend ’til the end.
Turn All Things to Honey
The boy on the shabby green sofa was going to die no matter what anyone did. Even Dr. Harry Purdee, no real doctor at all, could see that.
