Nicole Willson lives outside of Washington, DC; this does not mean she wants to talk U.S. politics with you. She has been a frequent visitor to small coastal towns located along the Eastern seaboard but has yet to see anything truly alarming emerge from those waters, much to her disappointment. She’s hopeful that her lifelong aversion to eating fish or seafood might earn her a little mercy when the hungry ocean gods finally start coming ashore.
Nicole is a member of the Horror Writers Association. She attended the Borderlands Press Writers Boot Camp and the Futurescapes Writing Workshop in 2019.
Nicole was selected as a 2017 Pitch Wars mentee, working with author Peter McLean (Drake, Priest of Bones) on her adult horror novel Tidepool.
She is a regular contributor to The Weekly Knob, a prompt-based writing challenge on Medium. She is also the owner and editor of 50-Word Horror Stories. You can find an up-to-date list of Nicole's fiction on Medium here.
She is currently a publications editor and has also been a web content specialist and an editorial assistant. She fulfilled a longtime dream of competing on “Jeopardy!” in 2011, although she did not fulfill her longtime dream of being a Jeopardy champion, alas.
If you actually read all this, she's grateful.
