About JD Nixon

I live in beautiful Queensland in Australia. I started writing in 2009 because I wanted to do something creative and haven't stopped since! I have two series of books:

The Heller series (first book Heller - free!) features the frequently outlandish adventures of security officer, Tilly Chalmers, and her complicated relationship with her beautiful, mysterious and intense boss, Heller. There will be seven books in total in this series.

The Little Town series (first book Blood Ties - free!) features police officer, Tess Fuller, and her struggle to survive a long-standing vendetta with the feral Bycraft family and at the same time manage the tense relationship between her new partner, Finn Maguire, and her boyfriend, Jake Bycraft. There will be five books in total in this series.

My author dream is to one day write a short story (which for me will probably be about 50,000 words!) where Tilly & Heller meet Tess & Finn. What a story that would be! Maybe over the end-of-year break???

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them! I'd love to hear your feedback, so why not email me at: jdn.author@gmail.com

Review by: Dorothy Edwards on May 29, 2013 :
NIXON writes winners! I do not always really care for contemporay crime, espescially those that try too be too slick. Little Town and Heller Security are unusual settings for very distinct characters that the reader soon has an indelible picture, even the "feral family". The only problem is the waiting period between the last and next episode. Waiting, waiting, waiting.

Review by: Vandana Kacker on Dec. 30, 2012 :
I Recently finished the third book of the little town series which I found the best of all the previous 2 books. JD has been my most favorate author in e-books and this one has made it stronger. the story grips us so much with all emotions and twists that I just didn't want the book to end. Tess and Finn had more nice time together which may be everyone wanted but now that Finn is away, we are left with more curiosity for next book. I agree with all the fans that JDN writes slowly, but then she hits the floor with a big bang which jolts us for long enough. I recommend her name to everyone and this book supports me right.Well done JDN!!

The saga continues. I love these characters. I must say J.D. really shuffled the deck with this book and it will be very interesting to see where she goes with the next book in the series. A wonderful mix of a great crime story line, humor, and characters who are real. The have tempers, don't always react to things the way they should or you expect them to. In other words, they are very human.

Great read from JD Nixon, I have read all the feud novels also the heller series my only complaint, not really a complaint, but they are too short as it seems I,m just getting into the story and it,s over and we have to wait another year. Love Love it.

Review by: Kimmie on Dec. 12, 2012 :
I wish I could put 10 stars for this great read as that is what it deserves.
As with all JD's books the latest adventures of Tess are hilarious and downright sad. This author has a way of getting you caught up in the story and I love the way she catches us up with the side stories at the end.
I understand that she has a busy life and while I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the new Heller book I'm also wanting to find out what happens to Tess. I will TRY to be patient :(

And if you like this series, do not, I repeat, do not miss out on JD's Heller series - another perfect series.

I loved this book! Have really enjoyed the whole saga. I become so engrossed by the story that I read till all hours and still cant get enough. JD Nixon tells a fantastic and riveting story. You can identify with the characters and feel both their joys and sorrows. Look up JD's Heller books too and let both Tess and Tilly become a part of you. Great value for money!

Unfortunately I read her books faster than she can get them out but when it does...its worth the wait. Nixon never seems to disappoint her readers. Thanks for another great read and keep them coming!

I couldn't wait for this one, and wasn't disappointed! I got hooked on JD after downloading the first book in this series. That lead me to the second Little Town book, and the Heller series. I've reread the Little Town books a few times this year - whenever I'm craving something funny, entertaining and action packed, I definitely open JD! Her heroines are strong, delightfully aware of their flaws, and able to hold their own in the worst situations. You can't help rooting for both Tess and Tilly. The end of this one left me in tears - can't wait for the next one to find out what happens with Tess & Finn!

Wow!! Just finished Blood Feud, the 3rd installment in the continuing (Lord... let this be!)adventures of Tess Fuller. Of the three books, this one is definitely the best of the lot, although I am not taking anything away from the first two... they were great too.

The author, JD Nixon, has perfected the 'from the frying pan into the fire into the kettle into the fire into the frying pan etc.' scenario with adroit skill. But it never gets tedious or convoluted and this is a breath of fresh air compared to most authors who try this style of writing.

I am not going to go into the storyline for fear of throwing in a spoiler by accident, but what I will say is that there are two primary subplots. One being the prison escape of Red Bycraft, the scum of the Earth, that Tess and her partner Sargent Finn Maguire, captured in a previous novel. Close calls, and even closer near death experiences happen through out the novel. The second subplot involves a barefooted mystery man who is terrorizing the burg of Little Town and causing all kinds of things to happen. Both subplots are extremely well told and you can envision everything as if you were off behind a tree watching all the happenings.

Twists and turns galore, this is one book that, if you have read no other books in the series, will easily propel you into hitting your local eBook store to pick the others up immediately following your perusal of the last page. Some who have already read the previous novels, I am sure, are already halfway through reading them once again.

JD Nixon is just one of the reasons that self-publishing is taking off and will usurp the 'power' of the printed novels if they aren't careful. She quickly became one of my favorite authors of 2012 and I read 150-200 books a year which encompasses a whale of alot of authors with different styles, formatting and basically ... storytelling.

If you are considering the purchase of this exemplary novel, do so! I assure you that you will soon be a devout fan of Nixon's Little Town series, as well as of her other series, 'Heller'.

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! I was at the edge of my seat through the entire book! The rest of the time was spent laughing, crying, or gasping in shock! I am still in awe of JD's talent and creativity. This book is not one that you will be able to put down so be sure to turn off your phones, lock yourself in a room, and pretend like you are asleep so no one bothers you for a couple hours so that you can truly enjoy JD's magic. Trust me, this author will not disappoint and you will find yourself needing treatment for a very strong addiction to all of her books. Five hundred stars to the brilliant and gifted JD Nixon!!
