About Nicole J. Simms

Nicole J. Simms is a UK horror, crime and fantasy writer.

So far her stories have been published in magazines (e.g. Firewords Quarterly - Issue 4), websites (e.g. Flash Flood Journal 2015 & 2018) and anthologies (e.g. The Dark Bard edited by Catherine May). She also won the Nine Voices’ 2016 50-Word Halloween Competition with her story titled ‘Meeting the Parents’. And in 2019 she self-published her first e-book, The Book of Drabbles, which is now available to download for free.

She’s the deputy leader of the Oldbury Writing Group, which is a writing group based in Oldbury, West Midlands. Together the group published a World War Two anthology titled From Sunrise to Sunset in 2016. They are now working on their second anthology.

Nicole is a contributor to the Horror Tree website — this is a resource for writers, which provides industry news, publishers with open markets and writing advice. Her column is called ‘Setting Self Doubt on Fire’, and here she writes blog posts aimed at writers who are struggling with self-doubt.

Some of her favourite authors include Sharon Bolton, Stephen King, Kelley Armstrong, Charlaine Harris, Mira Grant, J. K. Rowling and, new to the list, G. X. Todd.

When she’s not writing, she loves to bake, knit, paint and watch her favourite television programmes, such as The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Grimm, The 100, Supernatural and Charmed (old and new). She also enjoys exploring nature reserves, historic buildings and places or any place that can inspire a story.

Surprisingly, her favourite colour is pink, which many find odd considering her love for all things horror.

Really enjoyed reading these drabbles. It's so difficult to write a story using only 100 words but Nicole has done it brilliantly. A very enjoyable read.
