Ever the quiet one growing up, Nicole Dennis often slid away from reality and curled up with a book to slip into the worlds of her favorite authors. Since then, she’s had a fascination with fantasy, paranormal and the never-ending appeal and beauty of romance. It seems only natural all of these loves would come together in her writing from simple stories for her dolls until the summer when her aunt introduced her to Silhouette Presents novels. What a world that opened.
It's been non-stop since that hot New Jersey summer. It's only gotten worse (in a good way). Now she’s created a personal library full of novels filled with dragons, fairies, vampires, shapeshifters of all kinds, and romance. Always she returned to romance. Still, there were these characters in her head, worlds wanting to be built on paper, and stories wanting to be told and she began writing them down whether during or after class. She continues to this day. Only recently has it begun to become fruitful, spreading out to let others read and enter her worlds, meet her characters, and see what she sees. No matter what she write, her stories of romance with their twists of paranormal, fantasy, and erotica will always have their Happily Ever Afters.
She currently works in a quiet office in Central Florida, where she also makes her home, and enjoys the downtime to slip into her characters and worlds to escape reality from time to time. At home, she becomes human slave to two crazy cats - an angelic red tabby and a semi-demonic black-orange calico.
She loves to hear from readers and fans, so don't be shy. Find her on the 'net or send an email at [email protected]. Find her at the following links:

Q: Where do you get your ideas from?
A: From nearly anything that crosses my path–a book I read, a movie I saw, a story in the paper or news. Sometimes things pop into my dreams.
Q: Do you have a special writing area?
A: I created a library and writing area in the second bedroom of my apartment for the business end of writing. Usually, I end up on the sofa with my laptop and desk with a sleepy purring cat by my feet and a cup of tea and snack on the coffee table.
Q: Do you work outside your writing and when do you write?
A: I do have a full-time position as an assistant office manager, but luckily it’s a small office with a very understandable boss. ::wink:: He lets me write when I wish, as long as my office work is done first. So I often have my current WIP on the screen waiting for a few free moments and lunchtime. When I get home, I’m often on my laptop and sofa writing away until bedtime hits.
Q: What comes first? The idea, character, story, setting?
A: It depends on the story or what hits me first. Sometimes a character comes to me fully fleshed in a dream. Sometimes it’s the idea that I get first and the characters and story build around it.
Q: Why did you become a writer?
A: Oh, I didn’t have much of a choice. I’ve been writing since I was a child. I often have so many ideas racing in my head, I found writing them down got them out so I can get to sleep.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about writing?
A: It’s the same as reading for me. I love the escape from reality and into worlds and romances.
