Nicole Asselin grew up a Navy Brat, moving around with her family and her Naval Officer father as he was stationed in various US locales. She spent her formative high school years in the middle of Pennsylvania, but always identified with her New England roots. Her family is originally from New England and she always loved the weather in the north. Nicole graduated from Curry College in Milton Mass with a degree in English/Creative Writing, minoring in Dance in 2004. As she tried to decide what to do with her life, she attended George Mason University and received a Master’s in Arts Management, which of course was then parlayed into a job as a “jack-of-all trades” technical writer in the Government Contracting world. Now working in Downtown Boston, she lives on the South Shore of Massachusetts with her three cats Julia, Jacques, and Madeline (no relation to the main character of her book).
Nicole’s family is originally from Connecticut, and her Grandpa Asselin introduced her into the Red Sox nation where she has been a member for her whole life. Nicole’s Grandma introduced her to the world of mystery novels, and now she combined her two loves into this book. Nicole is a current member of Sisters in Crime (National and New England) and the Mystery Writers of America. She’s attended several conferences in the past few years to study the craft including Malice Domestic, Bouchercon, and the NE Crime Bake. All the classes and conferences have helped groom her novel into “Death at First Pitch.”
