Because of her mother and grandmother, Nicole Prestin grew up watching far too many b-movie creature features at two in the morning. She continued down this dark path by becoming a MST3K junkie in college and ever since then she has been a connoisseur of any kind of "so bad it's hilarious" movie she can get her grubby paws on. This has obviously warped her muse beyond repair and resulted in the "Tales of Truck Stop Terror," a series of short interconnected stories inhabited by rowdy rednecks, plucky waitresses, kickass cops, and silly supernatural menaces.
A short fiction writer at heart, she writes across many different speculative fiction genres (horror, science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy) and occasionally even dabbles in trying to finish one of her half written novels. When she is not swearing at the blinking curser on her screen, she spends time with her incredibly patient and indulgent husband and her pair of extremely cute, yet terribly clever, spawn.
