Thursday Twitter Takeover: S. D. Nicholson

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author S. D. Nicholson will be taking over our Twitter account.

S.D. Nicholson, 23, is an emerging author with a focused genre of adventure and fantasy. Growing up as a child, he exercised his vivid imagination, creating adventure games for his friends and family. Sam went back to these roots in his first novel, Mischief and Mayhem, the first book of a series to come in The Faerlands Chronicles. He graduated from Florida State University in 2017 and moved to Virginia Beach, where his imagination took hold once more and led him to pursue turning an idea into his first book.

S. D. Nicholson is the author of Mischief and Mayhem: Part One of The Faerlands Chronicles. The Faerlands Chronicles is a dark fantasy for adults that will sweep them away to a more magical land. Mischief and Mayhem follows protagonist Ophelia Maplewood on a twisted journey through the realm of the Faers. After lying dormant for centuries, a dark presence awakens. While malicious forces quietly stir in the southern nation of the Meadows, Ophelia, along with her companions from the Woodland Scouts, set out into the darkness. Soon, they find new strength and allies in the north – along with an unexpected human. Joining Ophelia and her Scouts may be his only means to salvation, as he quickly discovers what little understanding of the hidden worlds surrounding his own he really has. Will their journey bring balance to the homeland and prevent chaos from spreading to the other realms? Only time will tell.
