Budding novelist Nick Nolan wrote his first mystery in fifth grade and kept angst-ridden journals (featuring lots of sad poetry) during his teen years, but then had to surrender his dream of becoming a writer to fund college. While building a happy life with his partner Jaime, Mr. Nolan earned two degrees, worked extensively with homeless youth, rescued dogs, restored two homes, traveled extensively through Mexico, and owned scores of unusual cars -- including a Dodge Challenger once used in the Mod Squad television series.
Mr. Nolan originally self-published his modern fairy tales (and Book of the Year winners) Strings Attached and Double Bound, and after signing with AmazonEncore in 2009 began writing Black as Snow based on the story of Snow White.
Today Mr. Nolan, Jaime, and their two beloved retrievers divide their time between their home in the San Fernando Valley and a mountaintop cabin. Novel number four is currently under construction.
