About (OLD)

Nicole is an introverted mugwump, who finds great joy in reading history books of all sorts, ruminating on spiritual matters, walking in places that are not crowded by homo sapiens, digging mysterious plants into her garden, sampling a little too much red wine and doing her tiny part in making the world a kinder place. Born in Hamburg, Germany, to parents deeply affected by the horrors of WW2 and raised in apartheid South Africa, Nicole’s upbringing has given her a love for “the other” that has seen her become a respected and compassionate voice for justice and human rights. She holds a Bachelor of Theology and Master in History. Her career path includes a 14 year stint as Associate Pastor in a large church in Melbourne, Australia. Nowadays she spends her time on a variety of research and writing projects that she can conduct in her flannel pyjamas surrounded by her fur children.

  1. Nicole,
    I am editing an anthology on liminality (Lutterworth Press, Cambridge), and I want to inquire as to your interest in writing a Foreward or Conclusion of about 1200 words. I read your reflections on liminality with interest and think you would bring good insight to this.

    We have sixteen international authors – interestingly including Australia and South Africa – and I think you would really connect with this. I can send you the Introduction and First Chapter which presents the core concepts as well as a few sample chapters from our authors.

    I am a pastor in a mainline Protestant congregation living in the central part of the United States – Columbia, Missouri. I will be interested to hear your response to this!

    All good things,
    Tim Carson
