Like their first book, the beautiful cover illustration is by Sarah Maxwell and the jacket design by Nina Goffi and Stephanie Yang. The Ghosts We Keep will be out June 2021 and is said to be “perfect for fans of Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli, [because it] will rip your heart out before showing you how to heal and celebrate life in the process.”

Nicole joined Nerds and Beyond in 2019 and is excited to finally get back into writing. As a life-long nerdy fangirl from New Jersey, she loves Supernatural and its fandom as well as anything Wayward, Kings of Con, Lucifer, Wynonna Earp, and the musical Bandstand. She’s constantly listening to Louden Swain, The Station Breaks, Briana Buckmaster, The Avett Brothers, The Mots Nouveaux, or any of Aaron Mahnke’s podcasts. When she’s not [procrastinating] on Twitter, you can usually find her binging Netflix with her dog, reading fanfic, or daydreaming about being back in Arizona or Disney World!
