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

I'm hooked. Just read the first book and loved it. Also did something I rarely do while reading and that is laugh out loud! Great writing, great characters and I can't wait to download the rest of the series.

Very interesting read, I must say. I never read long books, but I decided to start with Heller. It got me hooked until I finished it, in only three days. That's a record!!! I loved the action, the humor, the characters and everything.
PS: I also fell in love with Heller.

All Tilly aka Matilda wanted to be was an actress. She looses her current acting job. Now what ! No money to pay rent , food or bills .She certainly doesn"t want to move back home with mom and dad at the age of 25! She sets herself up for a job interview at a security company.She gets with job with a one month trial . Her boss Heller is hot and sexy ! Will she keep her mind on her job and try to not to cause trouble cause she is apparently a TROUBLE MAGNET according to her co workers. Tons of laughs and adventure . Love the characters and the story line. Can't wait to see what happens in book 2! 5/5 Stars!!!!!

Loved it! The first few pages had me laughing so hard, I cried. I loved the characters- Tilly, Daniel, Niq, and of course, Heller. It was such an addictive read that I read it in two sessions. I definitely recommend it, and I just bought the next one, Heller's Revenge.

A great book. I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end. Plenty of action and a good storyline with strong characters. Kept me turning those pages and was sorry when it ended.
Excellent editing too.

I enjoyed this book. her writing is refreshing and different. There are parts that gave me a good laugh. I found the reading very relaxing and enjoyable. It is different from the Little Town books, but equally worth reading.

A knock your socks off author! If only she could write faster and appease her fans. The characters in all her books come to life on the page and fortunately with my nook I can turn them fast enough to keep up!

Review by: Artina Harkins on July 27, 2012 :
This is my newest favorite author. After reading the first book I immediately got back online and bought everything else she has written. I read them all, one right after the other, and loved every one of them. Can't wait for the author to write more. My only concern is that we're not being charged enough. This kind of quality should be worth more than $1.99.

Review by: Gayle Duckart on June 15, 2012 :
Wish I could help remodel JD's house faster so she'd have no excuse but to sit down and finish more Tess and Tilly stories! I read one of her free novels, and then was so hooked I bought 3 at 1.99...what a STEAL. Hated reading the last page knowing I'd have to sit back and wait for more. You go girl!

Keep at it JD... I need you!!!

Review by: Vincent Lamoureux on June 08, 2012 : (no rating)
My retirement has finally given me time to read something other than business papers, and this novel has been THE BEST of the dozen or so works that I have enjoyed. JD Nixon's writing style is virtually flawless and the plots and character development are realistic, thoughtful, and exciting. Some Aussie lexicon, but nothing that is difficult. Romantic and at times lusty, but never gross. This is truly a can't-put-it down, so set aside some time for a great read. All of the series are excellent - can't wait for "Heller's Decision" as I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the rest.

I hae just finished Heller's Punishment - the first one in the series that I have read, and I intend to read them all.
The scene with Tilly in the dinosaur's suit had me laughing out loud, and I was hooked. Not only is the book hugely entertaining, it is also well written. Ms Nixon knows her craft well!

Fantastic series by new author with bright future ahead of her. She says she' ll be headed back to her fulltime job if writing can' support her . Let's see to it that we support her. Heller is for all of us who ever had lofty ambitions or changed careers. Has humor, drama, love, hate, something for all. JD I love what you do!

Review by: HookedonNook on Jan. 25, 2012 :
Sorry--skipped well deserved 5 star rating. Yes there are some similarities to Evanovich but much richer, deeper than the more recent "rinse, repeat" Evavoviches. Any of JD's worth cost of Evanovich.
I felt ripped off with last few. Tillie is marvel.

Intriguing characters, humor, omg scenes. Love this series and Blood
Ties too but Heller my favorite. JD Nixon's first 2 are free so go for it. Refreshing to see multifaceted character development with unexpected twists. Would have cheerfully paid for free books and double cost of the others. JD, keep writing girlfriend. There is no reason you can't earn living with you writing.

Review by: Nora Lee on Aug. 11, 2011 :
Just finished reading Heller and am disappointed. The personalities of the two central characters quickly change from one extreme to the other. It's like both of them are bipolar. Having read Blood Ties by the author I was prepared for over the top characters, but characters I could relate to. The situations the heroine is placed in, her actions and the results of those actions are not creditable and I lost interest before the book was finished.

What a pleasant surprise!! I really enjoyed the 'Heller' and the prospect of a sequel to come! I love that Tilly isn't at all stupid, has her own mind and stands up for it, and can kick ass without any formal training!  With the depth JD has given Tilly in just one book, I look forward to watching her character grow in future books.

Review by: Nanette on June 05, 2011 :
I had to register just so I could give a big thumbs up to this book. It was thoroughly enjoyable with strong, engaging characters and a good storyline. A tad unbelievable, but it's fiction, right? I kept looking to see how many pages I had left because I didn't want it to end. Sadly, it did.

Needless to say, I am looking forward to the next Heller book!
