About Nicole

(c) 2014

My name is Nicole Givens Kurtz, and I’m an author of speculative fiction. I personally invite you to visit one of my other worlds.  Select any of the portals on the tabs above to take you there.

In addition to writing, I am the owner of Mocha Memoirs Press, LLC. We publish speculative fiction, horror, romance, and fantasy. If you want to try fresh flavors in fiction, stop by Mocha to download a new fiction title.

When I’m not writing, I work as an educator. I also serve as a guest at various regional science fiction conventions. I speak on topics such as, but not limited to, diversity in speculative fiction, dystopian fiction, and weird westerns.

  1. Are you coming to NYC for the Harlem BookFair? BookexpoAmerica.com? Brooklyn Book Festival? Also, Sisters Uptown bookstore, the last Black-owned bookstore in Manhattan. Someone sent me info about your book Silenced.
