Welcome to the merry path of author Nicole R. Dickson.  Originally from California, Nicole currently resides in North Carolina with her daughter, a dog, a cat, and many aged, ill-mannered oak trees.  Nicole has written two novels, Casting Off (2009 NAL/Penguin) and Here and Again (June 3, 2014) and is working on a third.


A path is best if shared so please feel free to wander about here with her.


  1. I would really like to find the two books that you mentioned at the end of Casting Off: The Fiber Arts and Fishing tune of Sean Monahan and A binding Love by R. Dirane.

    I had to read your book twice to get all of the hidden meanings of the book which a friend lent me.
    When I went to the web-site a second time, you no longer had your address on it.
    As I had planned to write a letter with a enclosed self-stamped envelope with this request.
    I have looked on the web for the books, and could not find them.
    I knew you would not tease your readers that they existed if they did not.
    Please let me know how I can get a hold of them, as I would like to know more about the stitches.
    Thank you for your wonderful book and yes, I did copy down the information about each stitch.
    Thank you,
    Anne Glynn

      Hi Anne,
      Thank you for the post. You are one of many that have sought those two books. Actually Casting Off was my first book and the other two do not exist. I would like you to know my intention was not to tease; rather those books are simply parts of Casting Off because it is a work of fiction. I would like to say, as to A Binding Love, that there was a discussion earlier about a sequel to Casting Off and if ever I can, I should like very much to write that story of R. Dirane. Thank you so much for reading Casting Off and apologies for any confusion. N.

  2. I have been waiting for another novel since Casting Off. I am so happy to have found your website. Will be adding Here and Again to my book collection. Looking forward to future novels.
    Would love to be on a mailing list, if you decide to post news letters.
    I will continue to check your website for current blogs.
    So glad your back.

      Hey Neva,
      Thank you for your patience! I will endeavor not to be so long between books this time and so appreciate your note here. :-)

    Hello! I tried to send you an email about your book giveaway of Here and Again mentioned on ShelfAwareness today, but the email kept coming back to me.

    Here is the email I attempted to send:

    Hello Nicole,

    Your book caught my attention on Shelf Awareness today. I live in the Shenandoah Valley, which is, as you know, steeped in Civil War sites and memories.

    The concept of Here and Again intrigues me a great deal, and I would love to have one of your giveaway copies. I am certain as well that I would find other readers in my book clubs to spread the word to.

    Thank you for considering me for one of your giveaway books.

      Hey Linda,

      Thank you for stopping by here. Please try contact@nicolerdickson.com Let me know if that doesn’t work.

      Best regards,

      • Hello Nicole,

        I heard of Here and Again as well but the email bounced back…Ah the vagaries of the internet!
        Kindly add my name in the hat for the giveaway please! I am intrigued by your synopsis to say the least and hope to review it.
        Thank you for the sweet opportunity and God bless,

    I am also having trouble entering the Shelf Awareness giveaway. I keep getting a error message. I am very interested in Hear and Again. Thank you for your time.

  5. Nicole,

    I loved Casting Off.

    I bought it for a dollar at the dollar bookstore and it will stay in my library as one of my best loved books. You write beautifully and I could “see” the entire book in my minds eye.

    I cried several times, toward the latter portion of the book, because I felt Sean and Rebecca’s pain and salvation.

    Thank you for writing this book. It is a book that I will cherish and share with many.

    Please, please keep writing.

      Thank you Debbie for picking up Casting Off and for this note! I’m glad you enjoyed the trip to Sharon’s Island as much as I did.

  6. I read Casting Off 5 years ago, and it has been sitting on my nightstand ever since.
    I see it every day, and smile because I enjoyed it so much. I look forward to reading Here and Again with great pleasure.

    Thank You!

    Nicole, I volunteer with your father at our senior center library and started to read Here and Again as a courtesy to Bill. It didn’t take long for me to realize that Bill had done me a favor. I loved Here and Again. Couldn’t put it down and yet didn’t want it to end. All of us in the library who have read it have felt the same way. If it takes another five years, it will be worth the wait to read another book like this. Thanks, Mernie

      Hi Mernie,

      I appreciate the note! My Dad did mention the Sr Center Library there and I am sending him 2 books to put on the shelves.
      I am very happy you all liked Here and Again and with hope, it’ll not be 5 years between books. I’m working very hard to have that not happen again. Currently on page 190 of the next story and hope to have it complete very soon.

      Thanks again fot the note and please give everyone at the Sr Center my regards. My Dad should be by shortly with the books.
