It was most certainly fate that Nick Carlson would find a passion for horror writing. At a young age he could be seen overturning rocks and logs, looking for the creepiest insects and worms the dirt had to offer. This fascination with nature’s oddities only compounded as he got older. Now he freehandles spiders and snakes whenever he can, and grapples with stingrays and sharks whenever he finds himself on the beach. He still has both his hands so he’s not going to stop anytime soon.
The thrill of uncovering and exposing the grotesque side of nature fed into a desire to elicit discomfort and provoke thought through writing. Nick believes horror and New Weird are not only the most versatile and time-tested genres, but are also fun as Hell to write. He self-published his first sci-fi/horror novel Simeon in 2020, and was featured in The Unknown: A COVID-19 Charity Anthology the same year.
Apart from writing, Nick is also an avid hiker, fisherman, classical composer, and organist.
