Nick van der Leek is a South African photojournalist and storyteller with an unconventional background. Instead of journalism he studied law, economics and brand management. His writing career started online, as a blogger in South Korea and a citizen journalist for Seoul-based Ohmynews International. After cutting his teeth in Rosebank, Johannesburg at AVUSA (now Times Media), he became a full-time writer and photographer, and today he is one of South Africa's most diverse freelancers.
Although he has a penchant for research and analysis his passion is creating, analysing and leveraging narratives.
He is currently working on the final book in his BLOODLINE series, a post-apocalyptic, dystopian, sci fi epic set in Scotland and outer space.
