Nicole M. Wolverton was raised in the rural hinterlands of Pennsylvania, among cornfields and creepy legends. She now resides just outside Philadelphia city limits with her husband and two cats in a creaky 100-year-old house filled with quirks and shadowy corners. She is a novelist and short story writer, as well as a marketing and communications professional. Nicole’s first novel, The Trajectory of Dreams, is an adult psychological thriller released by Bitingduck Press in 2013. Her short stories and flash fiction have appeared in a variety of literary magazines and anthologies, and her essays, creative nonfiction, and academic work are also occasionally published here and there. She predominantly writes horror and thrillers.

She earned a B.A. in English from Temple University and is currently pursuing a Masters of Liberal Arts from the University of Pennsylvania. Nicole is also an assistant coach for the Power over Cancer dragon boat community in Philadelphia and Judge of Elections for her borough. She is a member of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Horror Writers Association.

She is represented by Anne Tibbets, Donald Maass Literary Agency.

Aside from Nicole’s preoccupation with faceless things waiting in the dark and other terrors, she is a gin enthusiast and obsessed with travel. You can read more about her adventures on her travel blog, Pretty as an Airport.
