Evan Leonard, DSc, MS

Nicole Colwell began writing professionally in March 2012. She graduated from Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1999 with a BA in Psychology with a focus on Marriage and Family Relationships. After graduation, she returned to her hometown of Elmira, New York and began working at the local Behavioral Science Unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital. That position allowed her to gain first-hand experience with mental health patients and those who were in need of drug and alcohol treatment.

But writing was always something that Nicole had been passionate about. She wrote her first short story at the age of ten and then went on to publish four books, which are now available on Amazon.
