Nicole is a writer living outside of Washington DC with her husband and her cats.

Nicole enjoys writing and reading horror and dark fantasy, although she's open to reading just about any genre. She is a regular contributor to The Weekly Knob, a prompt-based writing challenge on Medium. Three of Nicole’s short stories have been featured editor’s picks on Medium’s front page. If you asked Nicole which of her stories is her favorite, she’d tell you that it’s A Little Girl and a Big Guitar. 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.

Nicole is a 2017 Pitch Wars mentee, working with Peter McLean on her novel Tidepool.

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.

If you actually read all this, she's grateful.
