Nolan Whyte


Nolan Whyte is a fiction writer. He scatters words all over the place, writing for a variety of websites, ghostwriting too much, and sometimes releasing serious fiction here and there. The best place to keep track of him is his twitter feed, although that seems to be about hockey way too much of the time.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind "Late at Night"?
"Late at Night" is a collection of short stories. These are pieces I've written over the last ten years that have either disappeared or were never really seen to begin with. They're mostly drinking and sex stories, two things that usually happen, yes, late at night. It's not a long book, but it has some funny bits. It's a good little introduction to my work.
What is "Comeback Road"?
"Comeback Road" started as "In the Van on Comeback Road," which was a fiction series at the website It ran on that website back in 2006-07 and received a very enthusiastic response from the visitors to the site. I've published it as a eBook a few times and I'm happy that it's now available on Smashwords. It's about a guitar player who is going through a divorce, going through some tough times, and he ends up with a band of young players on a cross-country tour. Each time I look at it again I'm surprised by its humor. It's older now, but it's still pretty funny.
