Nicholas began her second career as a writer while working to the NBC/CBS’ drama show, “In the Heat of the Night”. Actually, she wrote six episodes of the long-running show. When the show was cancelled, she crafted her writing skills by attending various workshops. Her first novel, Freshwater Road, received excellent recognitions from several publishers and organizations, including the Integrity Award given by the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival in the year 2012.
