Nicholas Brakespear

Biography

Nicholas Brakespear (1986 - death pending) is an English writer of science fiction, whose work you have almost certainly never heard of.

Inspired by a childhood spent running around castle ruins, attending six different schools, moving house frequently and suffering from the ever-worsening symptoms of a chronic illness, Nicholas was never destined to become a “normal”, fully-functioning member of society. In the late 2000s, after having dropped out of education completely, he re-materialised at university level and simultaneously began writing for UK gaming magazine “PC Zone” - a heritage he shares with the likes of Rhianna Pratchett and Charlie Brooker.

In the midst of completing the dissertation for his MA, and being rendered homeless by a combination of poverty and Dickensian landlord/tenant relations, Nicholas wrote his epic debut novel, “Sol In Extremis”... which was subsequently ignored with great fervour.

As of now, he continues to struggle against a wall of overwhelming indifference, his own deteriorating health and a government that seems to be one step away from turning him into soylent green.

If Nicholas Brakespear had one thing to say to prospective readers of his fiction, it would probably be this:

"READ IT. IT'S ACTUALLY RATHER GOOD. AND I'M NOT JUST SAYING THAT. I'M SAYING IT WITH THE CAPS LOCK ON."
