Born in Windsor, England in 1950, Nicholas Cooper grew up just outside London, glad to have lived through the transformational period of the 1960s that still echoes through our lives today. He was educated in Somerset at Queen’s College, Taunton, before going on to art college in Guildford, Surrey. In 1970, he was one of the few who successfully travelled overland to India, spending the best part of a year travelling the country and living with Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala, where he was privileged to have a private audience with the Dalai Lama. On his return to England, he studied to be a teacher, going on to work for some years in Illustration and Graphic Design, before being appointed a college lecturer in Graphic Design at Weston College, Somerset. In 2007, he moved to Spain with his partner, the painter, Angie McKenzie, restoring three Andalucian village houses to habitable “works of art”. Nicholas started his first novel, A Hand in God’s Till, whilst still in Spain, finishing it after returning to live in Ramsgate, Kent. Kamala was the sequel, published in 2014.
Nicholas and his partner now share their time between their homes in Ramsgate, Kent and the rural wilds of Portugal, where he continues his writing.
He is currently planning a family saga spanning the mid-Victorian era into the Roaring Twenties and set between England, India and Africa.
