Nicola Thompson was born in Bellingham, Washington, where she grew up. She began writing as soon as she was able to pick up a crayon and grasp the concept of stringing together symbols to create a story. 

When she graduated from high school, she moved to North Wales to focus on her writing. She remained there and completed her first novel. In 2009 she returned to Bellingham and published her book, Breaching Worlds: Book I of the Doppelganger Prophecy

Nicola has dabbled in writing for magazines which never came to fruition, though never stopped writing articles online or for local businesses. 

She currently works for a video production company and travels to festivals, writing about her adventures along the way.
