The Nerd Behind the Reviews

Hello!

Thanks for being curious enough to learn about me. Unfortunately, I never know what to write in these things. For a more formal introduction, you can read my “author bio,” quoted here:

Nicole Evans is a writer of fantasy and science fiction. She is currently unpublished and is working fervently to get the “un” removed from that statement. She has five completed manuscripts: a trilogy about destined heroes that fail anyway, a science fiction standalone that pits the natural desire to love against the natural instinct to kill during the extinction of the human race and the start of a series with the sole goal of fitting in as many tropes as possible. She also has two scripts done.

Considering she has run out of space for putting rejections letters up on her wall, Nicole now uses her spare time doing the typical things that nerds do: blogging, dying repeatedly during video games (which she believes is retribution for the characters’ she’s killed), wishing she was the character she is currently reading about and trying to fight off the real world by living in her own head, with varying degrees of success. Nicole has a degree in Creative Writing and a minor in Film and Media Studies, and works as a supervisor in a library at the University of Kansas.

I mean, that basically sums up the major points. Other interesting facts, I suppose, include things like I’m a Tolkien scholar (and wrote a 47-page undergraduate thesis to prove it), I’m addicted to tattoos, my favorite cheese is extra sharp cheddar, I’m convinced dragons are real, I’m 95% positive I’m going to grow up to be the ultimate dog lady, my favorite genres of music are hardcore screamo and classical, I really want to move to New Zealand and become a Hobbit, and I have such a positive outlook on life, it’ll probably make you puke (despite writing some really dark and at times grotesque fiction).

Another thing to note is that I have another blog that has been up and running for quite some time called Thoughts Stained With Ink. There I write about everything from my struggles and successes writing books to ultra personal emotions I don’t know how to handle to the latest videogame rant or why you should go see X animated movie immediately. I’d be honored if you’d take a look!

Read on!

PS: If you do check out both of my blogs, you’ll notice the “About Me” section, even though they have different titles, are pretty much the same content wise. Sorry about that, but like I said, I suck at these things and writing two separate ones for two separate blogs is just a task I don’t have the chops for.
