About

Hello. I'm Nicole Givens Kurtz and I write science fiction mysteries, horror, and weird westerns. I'm a small press publisher, and mom to three boys, two dogs, and one cat.

I write science fiction mysteries, space opera-fantasy, and weird westerns. I am most known for my Cybil Lewis futuristic pulp noir science fiction mystery series. My space opera-fantasy mash-up series, The Minister Knights, is another adventure series.

My works contribute to adding diverse voices and #ownstories into the speculative fiction genre. I seek to continue the work of giants that have come before me (Octavia Butler, Samuel Delaney, Ursula LeGuin).

This Patreon page is to support my attendance at conventions, like WorldCon, JordanCon in Atlanta, The Outer Dark Symposium, as well as my home state conventions, ConCarolinas and ConGregate. Being able to attend these events help me strengthen my writing network. I plan to pitch to agents and publishers, too.
Your patron dollars go directly to this effort. 

So look around and see if you like my work. You can get access to exclusive Patron-only content for as little as $1 each month, and at about $5 level, the weirdly wonderful rewards begin.

I appreciate your visit. Thank you.

Goals
$53.16 of $500 per month
Once we get to $500.00, I will record myself reading one of my short stories and make it available exclusively to Patrons.

You will be able to vote on the short story!
