Nicole Bross
Author Nicole Bross is from Calgary, Alberta, the traditional territory of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta. She lives here with her two kids, husband, and a huge orange cat.

She has an applied degree in Journalism from Mount Royal College, and her work has been featured in various print publications. She is a credited writer and researcher for various nonfiction programs. Nicole’s worked as the editor-in-chief of Birthing Magazine.

During her younger years, she began publishing a newspaper (which had a circulation of five) when she was ten. She began writing short stories at the age of eight, and was selected as the editor for her high school paper and copy chief of her college paper. She was fortunate to also get plenty of encouragement from teachers and her family to write.

She is an advocate for mental health awareness, having lived with anxiety and panic disorder since her childhood. More recent diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder has unlocked some additional insight into just some of the roadblocks that she faces in her daily life. She believes in honesty and openness about illnesses and mental health is critical to fighting stigma, and considers herself to be proudly neurodiverse.

Most often, she writes in a tiny eight by ten shed located in her backyard, which she turned into a retreat/office, filled with vintage bottles and books, snarky artwork, and typewriters. Even though it has a fireplace, she never uses it when it is -30C outside, preferring instead to decamp to the library or a cafe.

As an avid world traveler, she collects passport stamps like some people collect coffee mugs. Her goal is to visit a new country each year; her best (thus far) has been six. Nicole’s very favorite place in the entire world is her ancestral home in Cornwall, England. But Abaco Island in the Bahamas comes pretty close.

She enjoys seeking out manual typewriters that have interesting typefaces to add into her collection. Her crowning glories include a 1920s Torpedo Model 12 with a German keyboard that was used as a prop for the NBC series Lost and a 1920s Mignon 3 with a gothic blackletter font.

Nicole also cans, gardens, smokes, pickles and ferments her own food, and reads voraciously. “Jane Eyre” is her very favorite novel.
