Growing up in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania, Nichole started her writing career at a very early age. The youngest of four (by at least six years), she spent her afternoons using her Barbie dolls to re-enact her mother’s daytime television “stories”. Mimicry was her first muse, as she published soap opera-like stories on a word processor, and although the readership consisted of only her family, the market was thriving. It became her first stab at serial writing, and would forever shape her future. It was through these juvenile melodramas that she developed a love of writing.
Her first full-length novel, titled Foster Love, written between the ages of 12-13, was an instant cult classic amongst her junior high peers. Though it has never found a commercial home, it makes a great wedding gift for friends who grew up waiting for the next chapter to be released. Nichole continued her high school writing career by becoming the editor of the school newspaper.
After high school, Nichole decided to combine two of her favorite things: writing and movies. She attended The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she graduated with a 3.64 GPA and a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in Writing for Film/Television.
Post-graduation, Nichole attempted a ten-year career in retail management, which she now considers “research” for a future work of satire. Her decision to leave the corporate world and come back to writing full-time was enhanced by her acceptance into Wilkes University’s low residency MA/MFA Creative Writing program.
Nichole received her Master of Fine Art degree in June of 2015, and within six months found herself actively engaged in student loan repayment. With graduate school now complete, she finds solace in feline-inspired fashion, baking, NFL football (Go Pats!), and sewing.
She spends her time by writing web copy for a variety of different industries, holding lectures and classes regarding the craft of writing, and petting one of her five cats. She currently resides in Richmond, Indiana, where you can find her writing and laughing in her own little world, comprised of the three important C’s: coffee, cats, and characters.
