About Nicola

Like a lot of writers, I've been scribbling down my thoughts since I could hold a pencil. It wasn't until I took a creative writing workshop with Donna Morrissey that I attempted to write fiction. I simply didn't know where to start. But once I got going, I couldn't stop. 
I'm grateful to the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia for their tremendous support, excellent workshops, new friendships, and the incredible Alistair Macleod Mentorship ProgramThis is a program that pairs emerging writers with established authors. I was rejected my first time around. But the second time (having learned a thing or two) I was paired with Carol Bruneau. You can read an article on our mentorship pairing in Atlantic Books Today
My first novel In the Wake was just released with Nimbus Publishing. The book launch is on October 2nd, 6:30 p.m. at the Wooden Monkey in Dartmouth. If you happen to be in the area, come and say hello!
Also, I'll be at:

Foglit in Saint John September 26, 27
Books & Brews at Propeller in Halifax on October 18th
International Festival of Authors October 24  for Nimbus's 40th Anniversary Kitchen Party

When the Fall book events wind down and as winter sets in, I'll be putting on the kettle, stashing my camera gear and getting back to working on another novel.
