Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Nicole Izmaylov won the Reflections contest several years in a row in the categories of literature and musical composition, including multiple first places at the state level. She also received national recognition for her poetry, won the Georgia Author of the Year Award for her children’s book, Ronnie and BB (2009), and the Forward National Literature Award for her YA fantasy novel, The Draçian Dance (2010), and her middle grade chapter book, Dart and the Squirrels (2011). Nicole's interests include playing violin and piano and participating in science, drama, and academic clubs at her high school.

Rell Blue—don’t call her Cinderella unless you’re interested in a punch to the face—has had a major problem all her life: She’s cursed to help other people break their curses, but she has no magic of her own, courtesy of her half-fairy godmother, half-human parentage. So when she’s given the chance to escape a lifetime of breaking curses, she jumps on the chance only to get saddled with a trio of idiots who need their curses broken as desperately as she does. Soon they’re off to a man with the magic to help them.
But getting there will mean surviving the road. And each other.
Add in a dashingly handsome Narrator trying to get a job, a ghost intent on enforcing every copyright law in the world, an incubus working for the Friendzone (it’s in the second circle of hell), evil clones, part-time dragons, murderous zombies, werecorals, fetch quests, and more cat puns than one could say in a lifetime, and Rell’ll be lucky not go insane. But if she can make it, then maybe, just maybe, she’ll join the prestigious line of Curse Breakers.
