bio

Born in Brooklyn, New York to an African-American father and an Italian-Canadian mother, Nicole Salter became interested in literature as a form of escape at a very early age. Warrior in the Mud is her first novel, an autobiography about recognizing and overcoming childhood abuse and breaking the self-destructive patterns that resulted from it. Two more books are on the way: A Narcissist Walks Into a Bar provides a rare analysis of the Twelve Steps and the inner workings of the recovery program from the perspective of an ex-member, while the second, Don’t Fry the Children, delves into the emotional challenges of parenting while breaking the cycle of generational pain.  

Throughout her career in education and working as a freelance content creator for small and medium-sized enterprises across Canada, Nicole continued to write fiction. Two of her short stories have been published in print: Daddy's Chicken, by Red Claw Press in their Crave It anthology (2011) and A Conversation Among Friends, published by Inanna in  Other Tongues (2010). After an extended hiatus during which she started a business, had two children and lost everything but her mind, she has returned to long-form writing - this time, from her own experiences.

While Nicole works towards becoming a famous lit star, her small artisan business pays the bills. She lives in Toronto, in a fragile ecosystem consisting of several dozen plants, 2 overweight rabbits, and two beautiful children.
