Nicole M. Hewitt

Children's Author

Nicole M. Hewitt is a middle grade author living in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, three grown kids, and three overly-enthusiastic pups. She hates to run, but she succeeded in finishing a marathon in 2022. (It was for a good cause!) She enjoys nature but doesn’t see nearly enough of it in Illinois, so her family travels as often as possible. She also loves to sing and can often be heard spontaneously composing incredibly profound songs about the fluffiest members of her family (the dogs, in case you weren’t sure). 

Nicole has been a book blogger at Feed Your Fiction Addiction for the past 10 years, where she writes about all the books she loves. She’s a co-rep for SCBWI-IL’s Far North Suburban Network and was a co-mentor for Author Mentor Match Round 8.  She was also a homeschool co-op teacher for six years, where she taught writing, theater and more, and currently works part-time as a bookseller. 

Nicole’s debut middle grade novel in verse, ORPHAN’S SONG, will be releasing in early 2025.
