About me

I’m Nicole. 

Writing is hard work! As a writing coach, freelance editor, author, and speaker, I know the challenges and blessings of writing from the inside out. I’ve worked with writers in a variety of nonfiction genres – from monographs to memoirs – produce and sustain their best work over time. And as a writer myself, I’ve labored in the trenches to bring my own work to fruition.  I know how messy and disillusioning the writerly life can be on its worst days, and what strategies help bring about the better days.  Working with me means working with someone who gets it – but who isn’t afraid to give you that gentle push to move beyond what you think you’re capable of.  

I have my PhD in European History from the University of Cincinnati and currently live in Toronto with my husband, Basil.
