Nicola spent her childhood in Los Angeles with her parents and younger sister. As a young student in elementary school, she had a great fondness for reading and began to write creatively. Her fifth grade teacher encouraged her to keep her creative stories and to continue to write which she did. She graduated from university with a degree in communications and held a variety of positions in journalism, education, government and non profit.
While her writing during this period was business related as she wrote for a newspaper, marketing newsletters and press releases she remained dedicated to romance fiction.
She began to write long chapters on a website for romance and was voted top romance story for "The Sheik and the Slave." She soon had a following of loyal fans and started a blog to focus solely on her stories.
Her fans are amazing and she remains deeply indebted to them. They have encouraged her to continue writing and have been extremely supportive.
Nicola has traveled extensively throughout Europe, China and Central America. She speaks basic Spanish and has a love of all languages.
Nicola's goal is to create rich characters with a strong male lead and a passionate female lead. She also strives to set her books in places not normally written about such as Arabia in "The Sheik and the Slave."
"We all want a happy ending but I like to create some friction and chase before my leads come together," Nicola has said.
Nicola is grateful to her creative team who have been encouraging in this exciting new venture. "The Sheik and the Slave" is her debut novel.
