Robert Nicholls

Biography

I am a Canadian born Aussie, having emigrated with my wife to North Queensland in 1975. Since then, we've raised a son and have both been working in the state high school system. My areas have been English, History and Geography while hers has been Science. I write because I'm hooked on the music of words. I also sculpt, in wood and stone, because things that can be made with, and held in, the hands are good for the soul.

Smashwords book reviews by Robert Nicholls

  • Murder Justified on Oct. 05, 2013

    Richly detailed, almost to the point of distraction by times. But the protagonists work well together and the Lower Mainland setting (once familiar to this reviewer) is well used. Rob Nicholls
