Nick wanted to be that mystical figure, an author, from almost the very first book he read. As a child his mind constantly buzzed with characters and adventures, fed by an insatiable appetite for stories. Unfortunately, a childhood tramping the wilds of Dartmoor (in the UK), the joys of playing jazz trombone, and generally having a blast, left little time for serious writing as he grew up.
Later, an education in science and the demands of holding down a career again pushed writing to one side. Then he hit forty, and realised his imagination had never grown up. Finally, with a second-hand laptop off e-bay Nick embarked on the second most thrilling adventure of his life: writing a novel.
Nick has migrated north since his childhood, swapping the wilds of Dartmoor for the tranquility of the New Forrest (Hampshire, UK). He is enjoying the adventure of having a family (the greatest adventure of his life)with three lively daughters, who all enjoy reading as much as he does.
In addition to writing, Nick lists his hobbies as gardening (the variety that employs a large pair of choppers and requires him to sit around admiring the view), swimming (because it frees his mind and releases his imagination), juggling (because he can), and one day he would like to learn to play the piano (because the trombone really isn’t a solo instrument).
