Nicole Givens Kurtz
Bio: I was raised in the foothills of East Tennessee by two terrific parents. I have a love for writing that extends to every genre. I currently teach English to 7th graders in New Mexico. I have lived a variety of places such as: Orangeburg, SC, Chicago, IL, New Albany, IN, Louisville, KY and San Diego, CA. I have seen a great deal of the US, and hope to one day go to London. I have written three books and several short stories. I am the publisher for Mocha Memoirs, Contributing Editor for Suite 101's Short Story topic, and an adjunct professor for the University of New Mexico, Gallup.
