“Just because a state has an abortion restriction law that isn’t as strict as another state doesn’t mean that it’s not as damaging.” – Nicole Maggi
Nicole Maggi began writing poems about unicorns and rainbows at a very early age. She detoured into acting, earned a BFA from Emerson College, and moved to NYC where she performed in a lot of off-off-Broadway Shakespeare. After a decade of schlepping groceries on the subway, she and her husband hightailed it to sunny Los Angeles, where they now reside surrounded by fruit trees, with their daughter and two oddball cats. Nicole is the author of six books, including five novels for teens and one non-fiction middle grade. Her 2018 novel What The Don’t Know was praised by Booklist as “an engaging, emotional debate on rape and abortion.” Her 2015 novel The Forgetting was a Junior Library Guild Selection, a #1 Kindle bestseller, and a finalist for the 2016 International Thriller Writers Thriller Award for YA Fiction.
