About Me

Hello there and welcome to my blog!

My name is Nicolette Elzie, and I’m a little bookish and a little writerly.

I graduated from the University of Southern California and am currently pursuing my MFA in Creative Writing. I live in Southwest Georgia with my husband and our two young children. At some point along the way, I’ve fooled myself into believing that I’ve become a master mischief manager.

My Young Adult Science Fantasy novel titled PRINCE OF DREAMS is represented by June Stevens of Westerfield Literary.


I’m passionate about writing stories that I needed when I was growing up. That means I’m sensitive to women’s issues, feminism, body image, self-confidence, diversity (specifically accurate and inclusive Hispanic and Native American representation)  & mental health.

I’m especially passionate about these issues in the books that I read. Even more so in YA literature because YA is what I write. Unbiased to genre, I love YA in all forms. Give me contemporary or give me fantasy. Give me light or dark. Just let it be a good story that will break my heart and make me think for days, weeks and even months later.


On my blog I write about:

  • my writing and publication journey
  • the struggles I encounter in my writing as well as my victories
  • books that I love, that are inclusive and diverse and have broken my heart into a million zillion pieces

Feel free to contact me at alittlewriterly(at)gmail(dot)com with questions, comments or ideas you have for me.

Keep Reading and Keep Writing!

❤ Nicolette

      1. Right?!? That sounds like my Audrey Rose, she is a firecracker to be sure and a character if there ever was one! She’s hilarious and some of the things she says or does are so out there, I think to myself, “you can’t write that!” Lol! 😂

    1. Awwwwww, stop it! You’re making me blush!!!! Seriously, thank you sooo sooo much. Like, you don’t even know how much your compliments mean to me! I honestly spent way too much time making those graphics bc I’m such a noob, but I LOVE that you dig them!! *hearts*

      1. If your state-of-the-art graphics media is being a noob, then what is my obsolete MS Paint skills LOL. Seriously, aside from your book reviews, you should market those! 😀

      2. The fact that you make your graphics with paint is amazing to me, when I use paint and end up with jagged squiggles, lol. I use canva for all my stuff and freepik, I’ve got nothing on someone like Aentee from Read at Midnight or Jesse from Books at Dawn, lol. They’re my graphic making idols!! Lol. 😀
        But if you think I should market, I might totally do it, with the holidays coming up I could seriously use the extra dough for the family. 🙂
