Nicole Colville was born and currently lives in England, Leeds, West Yorkshire. She is a wife and mother of two young girls and has recently decided to follow her dream of writing her own book. She is a new author and has written a collection of novels. Hidden Truths was her first published book.
I wrote The Hidden Series as short story for a website and quickly realised it was far too big. I had written it all as one book when I decided 350 A4 pages was too big for one book and was most definitely not a short story. I split the book into three parts, Hidden Truths, Hidden Pasts and Hidden Passion, I printed them off and read them, then wrote a prequel, Hidden Love, which started off as a few pages just to clarify the history of two of my main characters.
Writing the prequel changed the first books and I went back and edited and re wrote the first three. It was while writing my fourth book and editing the first three that I felt I had actually written something worthwhile. I’ve really fallen in love with all my characters, no matter how small or big their parts are in my books and because of that I have written two more books following up the secondary characters and exploring their lives and loves.
I started off this journey with the intention of writing about love and the struggles and changes couples go through. The fact that most of my characters are gay or bisexual isn’t intentional. I don’t think I planned to write a ‘gay love’ story, to me this is just a love story. It’s all just sex and it’s who you love that’s the important fact. I really hope people enjoy my books and get to love the men in my life like I have done. I love them all for many different reasons and I hope that you feel the same.
