ABOUT ME

Nicole began her writing career as a young girl, galloping through libraries with reckless abandon, reading as many choose your own adventure novels as she could, and amassing an impressive collection of journals, which she filled with story ideas and musings. In College, she earned her first Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing, then went on to study Film Production. After, she moved to Los Angeles and garnered an MFA in Screenwriting from the American Film Institute. For the following decade, she worked in the Film industry and created her own short films, all of them having a life at film festivals across the globe. Now, Nicole is based in Orlando, Florida where she teaches Creative Writing, is at work on a fantasy series, and writes Poetry. Her work has been published in the Ariel Chart International Literary Journal and is forthcoming in the Writing in a Woman's Voice Literary Magazine, Indian Periodical, and Open Door Poetry Magazine, with more forthcoming. Her poem "The Last Night" has been nominated for the 2021 Pushcart Prize in Literature. Nicole is an avid reader and particularly enjoys stories that focus on that existential battle of Good vs. Evil. Also, she never misses an episode of RuPaul's Drag Race. With the pandemic, Nicole delved into writing fiction and poetry and is currently developing her gluten free baking skills, along with a Poetry Book and a YA Fantasy Series.
