LOCAL AUTHOR Nicole has recently published her debut crime novel, ‘A Few Bad Boys’.
‘A Few Bad Boys’ evolves around Lucy Fratelli, the girl who has everything – beauty, brains, her own apartment, a close family and friends. Unfortunately, she is hiding a secret from her family and her best friend, Julie. Lucy knows that she can tell her family and Julie anything but she also knows that if they find out her secret, there will be hell to pay. Terry Fratelli, Lucy’s father, is a gangster and lives for his family. He will do anything to make them happy and protect them at all costs. When Lucy’s secret is revealed he will stop at nothing to keep her safe.
Nicole moved to Spain about 17 years ago with her son, James and her partner, who she married in 2001. In 2002 Nicole’s daughter, Phoenix was born. Nicole has written numerous articles, but has always wanted to write a novel, unfortunately life events always seemed to get in the way.
About six years ago tragedy struck when her husband died in a freak accident, leaving Nicole and her children to fend for themselves. Many people thought she should or would move back to England, but she was determined to remain in Spain, the country that she and her children call home. Although it has been far from easy, Nicole and her children have overcome many obstacles through this time – which in themselves would make a book or two – and are now enjoying life again.
Just over a year after her husband died, Nicole came across an event called National Novel Writing Month which takes place every November. The aim is to write 50,000 words in the month. Nicole stepped up to the challenge and completed it. This was when the seeds of ‘A Few Bad Boys’ were planted.
Nicole lives in La Nucia and is currently working on her second novel, ‘Survival At Any Cost’. Nicole hopes that by achieving this goal of hers, it will inspire others to pursue theirs. If there are any budding authors out there who aren’t sure what to do next, or need some inspiration, Nicole will gladly help.
‘A Few Bad Boys’ can be bought through Amazon.com both as paperback and kindle.
