Stay up-to-date

This will be the first place I announce new projects, debut upcoming book releases, and take people behind the scenes on my process.

Talk it out

Subscribers also get access to comments and notes, an easy and open way to talk with Nick and a community of fans of classic pulp action and superheroes.

But who are you?

While my official bio might be embellished a little bit, I am an Eastern Iowa-based writer and blogger. I’ve published more than a half-dozen novels and story collections. I live in Eastern Iowan with my wife and youngest child in a house literally overflowing with books and comics. I maintain a website with handy links to find my books. I can be found regularly on a few too many social media platforms in a seemingly vain attempt to ween myself off of a twelve-year Twitter habit.

I write superheroes in prose. I blog about superheroes in comics. I ramble about wrestling now and then. I'm building a sword and sorcery world. Learn about it all right here.

I write books. I publish articles. I think about wrestling as much as most guys think about ancient Rome.
