Welcome!

I'm Nicole Willson, an author of horror and dark fantasy fiction. My debut novel Tidepool is a Bram Stoker Award nominee for Superior Achievement in a First Novel, and a Spanish translation will be coming out from Dilatando Mentes Editorial in October 2022. If you like Lovecraftian gothic fantasy with a shot of American Horror Story, you'll love Tidepool. The eBook, paperback, and audiobook are all available from Amazon and other online sellers.

I'm a frequent contributor to the Medium.com flash fiction challenge Hinged (formerly The Weekly Knob), in which participants have six days to write a story based on the weekly prompt. Below, you'll find links to some of my favorite stories.

Thanks for visiting!
