Nicole Melleby

Nicole Melleby was 8 when she saw Harriet the Spy and began begging her parents to buy her marble composition notebooks every time they were at the grocery store, that she filled with ridiculous stories she pretends she doesn't remember. She has since traded those notebooks for MS Word, and currently writes middle grade novels that explore art and relationships, mental illness, burgeoning sexuality, and the power--and limitations--of love.

Nicole is currently represented by Jim McCarthy ( @JimMcCarthy528 ) with Dystel, Goderich & Bourret LLC . Wednesdays are her favorite day of the week (new comic book day!) and she regularly schedules her work around daytime soap operas.
