Nick Wastnage Book and Novel

Nick Wastnage - Author

Nick Wastnage: 'It was only quite late in life, I started to write. It wasn’t by accident, I always wanted to do it, but never had the opportunity. When the time came, I signed up to a part-time creative writing course and began to write my first book, never published. I get my inspiration from other writers and things I’ve experienced. I try and read all the time; more when I’m not writing. I draw on poetry for a quick fix, dipping in and out when I need stimulation. Often, I will read a short poem or a verse in the morning before I start writing. I write because I enjoy it, and hope those who read my books will be entertained. I consider each book a learning curve to improve the next one.

I live with my wife and our daughter in Buckinghamshire. My eldest son is a restaurateur, my middle son a journalist, my youngest son has just graduated in politics from Durham University and my daughter is doing her A and AS levels. I have one beautiful granddaughter. I’m a member of Amnesty International, the Society of Authors and the Crime Writers’ Association.'

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
