About Nick

I am a novelist and essayist from Melbourne. My new novel, DEATH OF A TYPOGRAPHER, was published in Australia in September 2019 by Australian Scholarly Publishing. Read the reviews or Order it here.

DEATH OF A TYPOGRAPHER will be published by Arden in the UK and USA in March 2020.

Cover design by Stephen Banham.

My first novel GHOSTLINES (Scribe, 2008) won a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award and a Ned Kelly Award.

I also write non-fiction, usually something to do with place. My essays and articles have appeared in Meanjin, Griffith Review, Kill Your Darlings, Elsewhere: a Journal of Place, The Guardian and several anthologies.

I am the author of the blog Melbourne Circle, and I won the Nature Conservancy Australia Nature Writing Prize in 2015 for an essay about the western suburbs of Melbourne titled ‘A Landscape of Stories’, published in Griffith Review.

I have previously been writer-in-residence at the Mildura Writers Festival (2016) and have appeared at the Melbourne Writers Festival, Williamstown Literary Festival, the Crime and Justice Festival and Aireys Festival of Words.
