Nicole Ellis writes contemporary sweet romances and cozy mysteries. She lives in Washington State and loves to write about small coastal towns. She used to be a tax acccountant, but realized that writing romantic stories about people falling in love or killing off a hated character in a mystery was way more fun than depreciating assets. There’s never a dull moment in her household with a husband, two small boys, two cats and a house rabbit, and tidbits of everyday life often find their way into her books.
