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

Keep Reading and Keep Writing!
