Nicole O’Dell, finalist for the ACFW’s 2014 Editor-of-the-Year award, is the author of 26 books, founder of non-profit organization Choose NOW Ministries, and a national event speaker on parenting and women’s topics. Her focus is on helping parents and teens thrive through the teen years.
Enough of that formal stuff! More about me: I’m a mom of six, including triplets(!). is my Focus-on-the-Family approved non-fiction series for parents, which pre-empts peer pressure by helping parents tackle tough issues. And the Powerline365 daily devotional and it’s soon-coming companions are my latest passions for parents of teens.
I also write issue-driven YA fiction, like my popular Diamond Estates Series for teens, as well as non-fiction for teens like Girl Talk, based on the popular advice column I wrote with my two daughters.
