Featured Interview With Nicole Nadeau
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was raised and still live in Springboro, Ohio. I have a younger brother and older sister, and I have a Morkie named Lola and rescue cat, Penny.
I have one other thing: Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a form of muscular atrophy. It makes me have to use a wheelchair and makes my muscles much weaker. But I’m not going to let that stop me from writing.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve always loved reading, how you can explore worlds and go on adventures all in your head. When I didn’t like an ending, I would come up with my own. I started writing when I was thirteen, and came up with the idea that eventually became my first book.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I love to read Young Adult Action/Adventure. From Anthony Horowitz to Rick Riordan, who has inspired me the most. Horowitz keeps you on the edge of your seat and Riordan breathes life into his stories so easily.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My book is Death by Midnight: The Secret Life of Anna Goode series. Teenaged genius Anna Goode is dragged into a conspiracy involving the CIA when her parents are kidnapped by a terrorist. With her best friend Jake and her homemade inventions, she must save her parents and countless others before it’s too late.
Because I have SMA, I can only write using my phone, so it took a few years to write my book. But it was a labor of love. It was especially fun to write Anna, someone who’s incredibly smart but still very much human. She’s not ruled only by logic. She has emotions and makes mistakes. Yes, Anna is a genius, but she’s a person first.
