About Nicola

   My first novel, In the Wake, is a fictional story of a young couple returning to Nova Scotia. They buy a beautiful house overlooking the ocean and think they've found a peaceful place to raise their young son. That changes when they meet the neighbors.
   "With its nuanced depictions of marriage, parenting, grief and mental illness, and humorous, understated dialogue, Davison’s debut is at once suspenseful and subtle."
   At the 2019 Atlantic Book Awards, In the Wake won the Margaret & John Savage First Book Award for fiction and was a finalist for the Jim Connors Dartmouth Book Award. In September of 2019, it received the First Book Award for fiction from the Miramichi Reader. I'm blown away that it has been received so well. 
   These days, I'm serving as VP on the board of directors for the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia and I'm hard at work on another novel about a young woman working at an animal shelter. Stay tuned.
