My first novel, The Feed, is a literary dystopian thriller. Published by Headline in the UK and Harper Collins in the US. It’s in production as an Amazon / All3Media / LibertyGlobal TV show, to be aired in 2019.
As well as a writer, I’m a film producer. Black comedy / thriller Dead In A Week (or your money back) is to be released in the UK at the end of 2018, starring Tom Wilkinson, Christopher Eccleston and Aneurin Barnard, and with music by Guy Garvey.
The Feed was everything, until it was gone.
Tom and Kate have managed to survive in an unconnected world, but the search for their abducted daughter reveals what they have lost.
Without the Feed, no one knows who you are. No one knows who to trust.
Without it, how can their daughter be saved?
'A chilling, dystopian page-turner--I was hooked from the very beginning and haunted for days after finishing it.' S.J. Watson, bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep
'Evocative of Black Mirror, The Feed is a visceral warning about our addiction to technology and shortening attention spans in the form of an optimistic, engaging human perseverance tale.' Tal M. Klein, author of The Punch Escrow
'A really clever and original book. A tense thriller wrapped up in a scarily plausible dystopian nightmare, with a twist that will make your head explode!' C.J. Tudor, author of The Chalk Man
'This thought-provoking debut shines a speculative light on the subjects of connection, disconnection, and identity in a not-so-distant digital age. The fast pace and absorbing plot will keep readers racing to the end.' Library Journal

What folk have to say about working with Nick...
"Nick was incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and just an all round cool guy to talk to. He struck a great balance between sharing his experiences and understanding what I needed to do to make my WIP work for me. He set out by asking what I wanted to achieve and what I wanted my book to be, and then was incredibly supportive in helping me to do that. His feedback was detailed, constructive and delivered with great insight. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him.
The Riff Raff Mentoring Scheme was just brilliant! Doing a course is one thing, but having a successful debut author sit down with you and go through your book and help you make it as good as it can be is something I would recommend to any writer who’s lucky enough to be able to do it. It’s not just the knowledge but the confidence that I’ve gained from working with Nick that I hope will really help me as I pitch to agents and work on subsequent books. It was amazing to discuss particular issues and hear someone whose work I admire say “I had the exact same thing.” So encouraging. And of course they can tell what they did to fix it. I feel like getting published is a much more feasible ambition after this - and of course I’m super motivated now because I want my spot at a Riff Raff event!"
