Nicole A. Gramlich


Nicole was born in Shelbyville, Indiana back when disco was king and Soul Train was serving up swag. She lived her childhood in Columbus, Ohio, where in the first grade, she discovered her passion for writing. From that time on, she spent her spare time reading and writing stories (along with acting, singing, and drawing).

During her freshman year of high school, she met the man she was going to marry, Tim Gramlich. A shared passion for video games sealed the deal, and the two were inseparable. In 1997 they were engaged, and the very next year they packed up the car, the cat, and a trash can full of fish and set out for the beautiful blue skies of Albuquerque. The pair were married in 1999 and had two children very shortly after.

In Albuquerque, Nicole got involved in acting on a serious basis (even landing a guest star role on NBC's In Plain Sight). While she played on different stages and sets, Nicole attended the University of New Mexico - honing her craft and earning a degree in creative writing. She was inducted into Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society in 2008.

Nicole has written three novels, a feature-length script, and many short stories and short film scripts. Her debut novel, "Carla's Rivet" is scheduled for release on March 1st, 2014.

Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I have to admit that I am a little all over the place with the authors I enjoy. I love Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver, and have recently discovered Louis de Bernières. I also adore Leo Tolstoy, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Joseph Conrad. It definitely depends on my mood!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life. I know, it seems like a corny, cheesy response, but it's true. Knowing that I've been given one more day to breathe in the air, spend time with my family, do the things I love to do... it's a gift and one I'm grateful to have for as long as possible.
