Born in April 1956 in what was then the tiny village of Belthorn (actually in 65 Belthorn Road – mums were very hardy in those days), up on the moors high above Blackburn, Lancashire, Nick is the well-reviewed author of fifteen highly regarded crime novels featuring DCI Henry Christie, such as A Time for Justice, Nightmare City, Dead Heat, Psycho Alley and Critical Threat.
After a depressing year in a bank after leaving college, Nick joined Lancashire Constabulary at the age of 19 and served in many operational postings around the county before retiring in 2005.
He lives with his partner, Belinda, on the outskirts of Preston.
