The sixth book in the 'Agent of Rome' series, 'The Earthly Gods', was published in 2016. It was described by The Times as 'gripping' and by The Sunday Express as an 'entertaining adventure'.
In recent years, I have ghosted three novels for clients (one historical fiction, one sci-fi, one fantasy). In total, I have completed over one hundred projects for clients as a freelance writer. I have taken ten novels through every stage: from plotting and character development to formatting and copy-editing. I specialize in writing action and creating compelling twists and turns. All my work contains believable, rounded characters and a touch of humor. I usually draft at least eight times to ensure my prose is smooth, powerful and dynamic.
As a former teacher, I am an enthusiastic and supportive colleague. I take pride in every project and have never missed a deadline. I look forward to hearing from authors interested in collaboration.
Feedback from a client for whom I 'ghosted' a 100,000 word historical epic:
'When I set out to write my novel, I knew I needed someone with a distinct voice and someone whom could bring life to long lost souls. The story itself is a historical fiction, re-lived through the lives of extraordinary people. Nick Brown was an absolutely perfect choice for this project. He thoroughly understood the requirements and worked hand in hand to help me realize my ideas.' - Josh C.
Feedback from clients for whom I 'ghosted' a 90,000 word science fiction novel:
'Nick’s ability to take another’s artistic vision and effectively collaborate to yield vivid and eloquent compositions is admirable. I expect to work with Nick in the future for a sequel to our initial project. His understanding of how to best navigate the industry side of the process is also incredibly advantageous.' - Shakil & Ehsan A.
Feedback from a client for whom I ‘ghosted’ a 90,000 word fantasy novel:
‘Nick has been great all the way through our project. He's brought to life the characters and world that I have been developing in my mind for almost a decade and I couldn't be happier. He's been a great tutor along the way and I've picked up a lot of writing knowledge. A clear communicator and always delivers on time.10/10.’
