About the Author

Nicole Evelina is an award-winning historical fiction and romantic comedy writer. Her most recent novel, Madame Presidentess, a historical novel about Victoria Woodhull, America's first female Presidential candidate, was the first place winner in the Women's US History category of the 2015 Chaucer Awards for Historical Fiction. Her debut novel, Daughter of Destiny, the first book of an Arthurian legend trilogy that tells Guinevere's life story from her point of view, was named Book of the Year by Chanticleer Reviews, took the Grand Prize in the 2015 Chatelaine Awards for Women's Fiction/Romance, won a Gold Medal in the fantasy category in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and was short-listed for the Chaucer Award for Historical Fiction. Been Searching for You, her contemporary romantic comedy, won the 2015 Romance Writers of America (RWA) Great Expectations and Golden Rose contests. Nicole is one of only six authors who completed a week-long writing intensive taught by #1 New York Times bestselling author Deborah Harkness. As an armchair historian, Nicole researches her books extensively, consulting with biographers, historical societies and traveling to locations when possible. For example, she traveled to England twice to research the Guinevere's Tale trilogy, where she consulted with internationally acclaimed author and historian Geoffrey Ashe, as well as Arthurian/Glastonbury expert Jaime George, the man who helped Marion Zimmer Bradley research The Mists of Avalon. Nicole is a member of and book reviewer for The Historical Novel Society, and Sirens (a group supporting female fantasy authors), as well as a member of the Historical Writers of America, Women's Fiction Writers Association, Romance Writers of America, the St. Louis Writer's Guild, Women Writing the West, Broad Universe (promoting women in fantasy, science fiction and horror), Alliance of Independent Authors and the Independent Book Publishers Association.

Honorable Mention - Reader's Favorite Book Awards, Fiction - Historical Personage category
Awarded the B.R.A.G Medallion

"Evelina's intriguing account of Victoria Woodhull--spiritualist, suffragette, stockbroker, and politician--deftly extols the many "firsts" of this 19th-century feminist trailblazer...Evelina moves assuredly through the many layers of Victoria's colorful life; such potent issues as family torment, marital abuse, and female subjugation all are linked in this dramatic story of struggle." - Publisher's Weekly

"A well-plotted and revealing look into the life of the first woman to run for president, and a book that stays with you." - Historical Novel Society

"A fascinating story of meteoric rise from rags to riches, from subservience to achievement - based on a true story. A highly entertaining and informative read." - Chanticleer Reviews

"Fascinating. Victoria Woodhull was certainly a powerhouse, who for some reason was written out of the history books. If you're looking for an engaging and fast-paced historical fiction novel about subject not often explored in the genre, be sure to check out Madame Presidentess." - Books & Tea

"Riveting... Nicole Evelina presents a realistic and fascinating account of a woman who should be recognized in the history books...Ms. Evelina is certainly a skilled storyteller and writer...This excellent book is required reading for anyone trying to understand the roots of the fight for women's equal rights." - Deborah Lloyd for Readers' Favorite

"An engaging read...author Nicole Evelina's fascinating account doesn't spare the more sordid side of Woodhull's life and is punctuated with events and figures from the era (e.g., Walt Whitman, Susan B. Anthony, the suffragists, et al.)." - IndieReader

"Nicole Evelina beautifully illustrates in her historical novel Madame Presidentess the major events, philosophical influences, and relationship dynamics at play in the extraordinary life of Victoria Woodhull as a significant forerunner for our generation's feminist movement. This highly engaging story of Woodhull's 1872 Presidential run is so timely and relevant!" - Cindy Safronoff, author of Crossing Swords: Mary Baker Eddy vs. Victoria Claflin Woodhull and the Battle for the Soul of Marriage
