Writers! November is NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month! Several PSU English alumni have participated, sometimes numerous years, in NaNoWriMo, and one of them, Nikole Breault, keeps a blog about her work as a writer.
Nikole earned her BA in English Education at PSU and taught for eight years. She also earned her Master of Education degree in the Teaching of Writing from Plymouth State in May of 2014. Nikole left teaching in 2015 on an extended maternity leave when her youngest daughter was born. As the maternity leave came to an end, Nikole decided to resign from teaching and become a stay-at-home mom. It was during that time that she decided to rekindle her first dream of becoming an author and pursue a career built on losing herself in stories.
Nikole is a Young Adult Magical Realism, Science Fiction and Fantasy author. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and actively involved in her local chapter Peer Critique group. When she’s not writing, Nikole can be found either on a yoga mat, curled up in a chair with a good book, walking the family chug (chihuahua-pug), or chasing adventures in the mountains with her husband and two girls.
