Randy Nicholas Tatano - Editor

Navarre, FL, United States

Author for HarperCollins (10 books) & 11 other novels in several genres: thriller, political, sci-fi, romance, dystopia. Plot driven.

Overview

I'm the author of 21 novels, 10 of which are published by HarperCollins. I write as Nic Tatano and Nick Harlow and all my books are plot driven. (If you need help with literary fiction, I'm not your guy.) I frequently swap manuscripts for content/plot idea with other authors and am part of a weekly critique group with five writers.

My "day job" has been working as a television news reporter, but I am now past my on-air expiration date (thanks to hi-def, which shows wrinkles down to the molecular level) and now work as a freelance producer for all the major networks.
