Nicole Thomas was born in Queens, New York in 1984. She has been married for 10 years and has one daughter and one cat. For her “Outside of church, there is nowhere more refreshing for my soul than curled up in a corner with chocolate and a good book.” And that love led into writing. She has always enjoyed reading, her favorite genres being Christian fiction, historical fiction and fantasy. Tales of Elhaanai, her first novel, is a mystical blending of those genres. Early one morning Nicole heard Alanna’s voice as she ran for her life through the mists. That is how Elhaanai was born.
