Nicole Rubino is an author of young adult urban fantasy novels. Something Wicked is her debut novel, published November 26, 2019 and is the first in the Something Wicked series.

Ever since Nicole was old enough to pick up a pen, she began writing stories. She remembers fondly Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach as the first book she read to take her on an adventure, and thus fell in love with writing fantasy. Her equal love for history propelled Nicole to delve further into the witch hunts throughout Europe and the witch trials in Salem, giving her the idea for her debut novel.

Nicole received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology from Manhattan College in Riverdale, New York. (James Patterson went there!). She lives in Westchester, New York with her husband, son, and a dangerously overflowing bookshelf.
