Welcome to Maddie Takes the Ice
Thanks so much for visiting my website! I’m Nicolette, author of Maddie Takes the Ice, a freelance writer, and a figure skater. I hope you will explore all my website has to offer. As a skater I have had the amazing opportunity to travel the world, meet a variety of people, and be exposed to many different cultures both on and off the ice. During my travels and in between training sessions one of my favorite hobbies was reading. Something about jumping into the stories I was reading helped me relax and refocus during my training days.
I am very lucky to have been able to write Maddie Takes the Ice and share some lessons that I learned from skating with other young skaters and athletes around the country. The book is a real look at what it is like to train at an elite level in any sport and it offers support and encouragement to those involved in these endeavors. I hope readers will jump into Maddie Takes the Ice the way I did.
I love to write fiction because I believe so many good life lessons can be learned through stories. I hope to spread some of what I have learned through this book and others I plan to write in the future. Stories can be told in any form- in fiction books, biographies, magazines- and I hope to keep telling them in any form possible.
