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 released with Nimbus Publishing. The dual book launch was on October 2nd, 2018 at the Wooden Monkey in Dartmouth, alongside Carol Bruneau and her latest novel "A Circle on the Surface."
