I’m Nicole Marie.
I made the very loose decision at the age of ten that I wanted to be a writer of some kind. I kept journals, wrote poems about boys (and tumbleweeds) and maintained straight A’s in all of my English classes. Since then I have wanted to go into Forensics, Theater, even Dentistry, but I always came back to my first love.
After attending community college for 2 and a half years and taking every English and Writing course I could fit into my schedule, I transferred to Rowan University where I received a Bachelor’s in Writing Arts (with a Creative Writing concentration) in May 2011.
I am Fiction Coordinator for non-profit magazine Philadelphia Stories by day, and by night I tend bar. Since graduation, I spend my time working on my debut novel – all of my work falls mainly in the horror genre – and trying to catch a bite on my resume.
Sometimes I’m motivated, sometimes I’m not, but I never stop loving the writing process.
I have a strange fascination with the macabre, but I’m just a normal girl (sort of) trying to make it in a tough industry. I still love Forensics, and at times, I still dream of Broadway.
I started blogging in order to create another outlet for myself as a creative writer, and it has become a great exercise to keep those juices flowing. I’ve also met some fantastic – and supportive – blogging friends along the way.
I use this space to showcase some writing, search for other writers, make some friends, complain a little bit, and discuss some other joys in life.
Thanks for checking me out! (Not like that. Or maybe?)
When you’re finished, please head on over to my secondary blog, where I’m keeping tabs on training for my first marathon. I need all the support I can get!
