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 urban fantasy, space opera, high fantasy (or some other kind?), and southern gothic horror. 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. This year (2019) I am traveling to WorldCon in Dublin, Ireland where I plan to pitch to agents and publishers, and network with authors.
Your patron dollars go directly into the hotel, gas, and food fund so I can travel and share my stories and love of fandom with readers just like you. 

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.
