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 is out from Cemetery Gates Media, and my YA horror novel The Keeper of the Key is forthcoming from Parliament House Press 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.
