One Monster’s Journey to becoming a MOMster through mad science.
Growing up in Newfoundland, Canada, Nicole Victory’s family used to tell her that she was great at exaggerations-but what they meant was that she was great at telling captivating stories! She wrote FrankenLove to share joy and inclusivity for families affected by infertility, based on her own experiences building her family. When she began writing this story, she had no idea if she would ever have children. In the midst of that hopelessness, she chose to partner with her vulnerability and creativity and build a story – hoping she would one day read it to her child.
As a storyteller, writer, communicator and author of the new children’s book Frankenlove, she has applied her love of words to each part of this monster book. With over a decade of professional writing experience and a lifetime of passionate storytelling, Nicole has a uniquely vulnerable and joyous voice that shines through. Today, she lives in Edmonton, Alberta, with her husband, Christian and their new baby girl. Together, they enjoy hiking with their dog, Newman, travelling, reading books, and, of course, anything spooky
Frae the monster has one wish: to create a new life and become a MOMster. But no matter how hard she tries, she can’t seem to make a mini monster of her own.
When her friend recommends a mad scientist named Dr. Boo Fang, Frae finally hopes her dream of becoming a MOMster will come true.
A funny and heartwarming tale about becoming a parent, FrankenLove explores fertility struggles and success through the spooky and fun-loving lens of a monster-filled world. Not all families are created the same, but each one is a monstrous miracle.
