Nicole MacDonald lives in Fenton, Michigan. She attended the University of Michigan – Flint where she earned her degree in elementary education. She has taught kindergarten through second grade. While teaching, her favorite part of the day was reading to her students. She has been married to her husband, John, since 2002. They have one beautiful daughter, Allie, and two toy poodles, Dash and Penny. Dash was her inspiration for the book, Dash’s Week.
For fun, Nicole loves spending time on the lake, watching movies, reading, and traveling to Marco Island, FL and New York City. She is always trying to find another new favorite restaurant!
Nicole loves hearing from her readers. To contact her, or to write a letter to Dash, please send an email to
