Nicole Dunlap

Biography

Nicole Dunlap holds a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Child Development, and a Masters Degree in Educational Counseling from Azusa Pacific University. She lives her dream of counseling in the inner city of San Bernardino; motivating teens dealing with depression, pregnancy, gang membership and abuse. But, she admits to two passions-writing being her first love. She has been self dubbed the "gumbo genre" novelist, because books shouldn't be lightly seasoned... Her stories revolve around family and relationships, women's issues, drizzled with drama, peppered with suspense, and finished off with aromatic notes of romance. The Shaw Family Saga pays homage to dysfunctional mother-daughter relationships, with well developed characters that readers can root for; love them, hate them, cry for, and most of all, yearn to flip through the pages to the end of that character's journey.

Smashwords book reviews by Nicole Dunlap

  • Aversion (Book One of The Mentalist Series) on Dec. 18, 2012

    At first Gemma is your classical loner teen, but nope, actually she is not. Gemma has special powers and their much different than the usual vamp, witch, etc., which makes for a good read. She is an Averter (I won't go into that because it will spoil the story), but her life gets turned upside down when she falls for the boy, Russ, she's meant to save. In a nutshell: a forbidden love story + fast pace action = two thumbs up!

    He said v.s. she said. Who do you trust. At times I was hoping for the best for Genese new boyfriend because it presented a gangsta teenage love story. At other times I hoped Genese could trust her best friend Amaya. Toward the middle I cared for Genese enough to tell her to get some new friends and to not trust anybody! Anyways this book had funny moments, sad ones and very grimmy moments to as The good Christian girl Genese had placed herself in the middle of a gang squabble. The ending is beyond good. Street lit meets God lit. And the writer spun magic

  • Surreal - The Hell in the Family on June 21, 2013

    This was a new and pleasant read than what I'm use to. The different myths show how each person has a different perspective. I enjoyed the family history. The story reminds me of those cozy days were granny tells you about the past, except this story had twists and death, adding mystery. Though I would've liked less exclamation points, to curb the dialogue in this story, all in all, I enjoyed it.
