I’m Nicholas Austin, a thriller-adventure author based in Austin, TX.
Tough decisions, character growth, and dark twists are the things that most define my novels. My stories are written to immerse readers in intricately developed worlds, which are home to a wide variety of intriguing, relatable characters. It is my hope that you will feel yourself grow with them as they do through the obstacles they face.
First plot twist: I actually got into writing novels based on my love for television shows (I know… sacrilegious). Shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Fargo inspired me to expand upon my long-time hobby of song writing and dive into story-telling. Since I didn’t know how to write a TV show, I wrote a book. But now I’m very excited to be doing both!
Though I’m now based in Austin, TX I actually grew up in (on?) Long Island, NY. I came to Austin to attend the University of Texas, from which I received my undergraduate degree. During my time there I was involved as a writer/editor for several scholastic newsletter publications as well.
I’m extremely pleased to say Crimson River and Crystal Eyes, the first two novels in the Civilands series, are now available in e-book and paperback! Book 3 of the series: Crescent Heart is next to be released March 2018!
Beyond my work as an author/writer I enjoy hiking with my border-collie / lab mix Luna, watching sports (New York Rangers hockey and Texas Longhorns football!), spending time with friends and family, and playing music.
