My name is Nicholas Black.
I'm a former member of the US NAVY, and the French Foreign Legion. I have fought professionally in the MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and have won two world titles in the process. I've done stunts with Chuck Norris (Walker: Texas Ranger), defused explosives, hit targets at +1,000 meters, made America's Most Wanted list, worked with "Freeway" Ricky Ross, co-written with Jimmy DaSaint, and met the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
* Regardless of rumors to the contrary: I did NOT stab the president of Paraguay in the neck with a fork. That whole affair was blown way out of proportion. And I deny every being a part of any dictator(s) being overthrown in Central Africa, and South America.
I've written about 10 books, most of them while on the run from the US Government. Perhaps I should back up:
I used to be a professional bodyguard. Some of my clients were the fancy, Hollywood type; and others were the East Coast Mobster kind. One of my clients, in particular, was a former Hitman, and hired me after he had put his assassination days behind him . . . or so I believed.
The US Government took me, along with the other bodyguards, into custody, asking if we had knowledge of our Boss's previous hits. We said, "No," and immediately all lawyered up. After we were released on bond I met with the other bodyguards and informed them that I was leaving the country.
2 days later I was gone.
Several months later I ended up in Paris, signing a contract with the French Foreign Legion. I trained in everything from Interrogation, to Diving, to Small unit Counter-terrorism tactics. I learned French, Spanish, Russian, and Arabic in the process.
. . . Oh, and I also learned how much money there was to be made in the Mercenary Trade.
Anyway, most of my literary works were concepted while I was on the run from INTERPOL, dodging cops and bullets and ex-girlfriends (by comparison, the first two were relatively easy).
I write lots of dark, twisted, morosely humorous things. I like thrillers, suspense, crime, and baby ducks (on a bed of white rice, of course . . . jk).
I hope you enjoy my work. Oddly, writing seems fairly easy. Editing, well that's for educated, buttoned-down types . . . and that's not me.
Catch me on Facebook:)

Witness the wild west era of emergency medicine as seen through the eyes of Paramedic-13. In this gritty, pull-no-punches account you will live each call through the people who wrestle with death each and every day to keep the rest of us alive.
Every paramedic, firefighter, EMT, and nurse should show this to their families.
Because none of us actually have any idea what really goes in inside.
