Hey lovelies! For those of you who don’t know, I have a blogger page in addition to this site, and that blogger page just got a major upgrade!
Check it out: lhnicoleauthor.blogspot.com
I found these really great girls who redesigned everything for me, including social media icons that are shaped like Dagg! (The Dragon is feeling very smug right now) Once I figure out how to get them on this site, they’ll be here too!
Megan and Chri also designed some really cool banners and even a grab button that I’m going to use across both these sites! So keep track for new pages and lots of new content coming your way.
One of the new pages I’m designing for this site is an “extras” page which will include my Spotify play lists, memes and other pieces of art, the new grab button and it’s code and a special look at my WIP– right now called “Chasing the Orion Stars”

Let the ATO commence!
- What’s the weirdest thing you’ve Googled?
You mean besides looking up how a dead body looks after decaying for six months or how a gunshot feels? J The latest is: how long does it take a human body to bleed out?
- Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
It is all from my imagination, although I believe in ghosts and have had a couple of ghostly experiences. One I blogged about on the group blog, Laffienated Ink, http://laffeinatedink.com/2014/04/24/do-you-believe-in-ghosts/
- Do you have a specific writing style?
I have a very conversational voice, which makes writing first person ideal.
- How did you come up with the title?
The title took forever, lol. I wanted it to reflect a chick lit tone because that’s Piper’s voice. And since she’s a horror movie junkie, it felt right to use a variation of the line from Sixth Sense. Each future title is also a line from a movie the book is inspired by. The second book will be called We Are the Weirdos, from The Craft. The series is called Disturbia Diaries, which is a wave to another horror movie—Disturbia.
- When did you first start writing and when did you finish your first book?
Technically, I first started writing in middle school, and my first completed book was at age 19 (that doesn’t include all the short stories). But I became serious about writing in 2005, on my birthday, and finished my first book in 2007. It was a romantic suspense that I still have but will never see the light of day. 😉
- What’s your favorite line from any movie?
I don’t have one. I love movies, especially thrillers and horror, but I’m afraid I don’t remember any specific lines. J
I SPY DEAD BODIES (Disturbia Diaries #1)
Horror movie and junk-food junkie, fifteen-year-old Piper Grimaldi wishes for three things:
- to help her true crime novelist father solve a mystery,
- to settle down and make one town their home, and
- to have a social life, which includes a BFF and a boyfriend (even if she’s not allowed to date for another year).
It looks like her dreams will come true when on the first day in Hollow Ridge, MA, she befriends her next-door neighbor, mauls a cute boy, and spies on teen soap star, Linzy Quinn. But then the boy rejects her kiss, and Piper finds Linzy’s dead body. To make matters worse (as if that’s possible), Linzy’s ghost appears, in full color, and won’t leave Piper alone.
Piper desperately wants to help Linzy move into that darn light, but Linzy’s more interested in seeking revenge on all the people she believes did her wrong … including the person who killed her. If Piper can’t find Linzy’s killer, she just may be the next true-crime victim of Hollow Ridge.
Jennifer Fischetto hears voices.
They tell her to wait in the dark for her next unsuspecting victim.
They tell her to kill.
She writes down every whisper, every threat promise to frighten.
“Write what you know” is easy when you’ve spent your life plotting murder and revenge on annoying classmates and nosy neighbors.
When not burying evidence in her yard, cooking another batch of poisonous brownies, or dealing with ghosts and other supernatural baddies, she sits in the corner of her creaky, damp basement, writing fun, humorous mysteries for teens and adults–to cover her tracks, so no one notifies the FBI or calls for a straitjacket.
Seen as a nice girl, her friends and family assume her books are filled with multiracial romance and journeys of strong, smart, sassy women and girls of all shapes and sizes.
Not dead bodies.
