About Thriller Author Nigel Billington

I'm a new thriller author, having never written before, but with my wild imagination I took the leap to write my first book: THE FUTURE IS SET - a Josh Brannon action-thriller, a soon-to-become thriller book series I'm planning with further releases.

Here's a little bit about me

I grew up in a one-parent family in the UK - raised by my mother, alongside my brother and sister. I'm about as English as they come. I didn't enjoy school, I was an average student at best, and so I hope to inspire any wanna-be authors that come from low income families, have a poor education, and who want to become a writer.

I left school at 16 and joined the British army in 1985. I served in an infantry regiment, first stationed in Berlin in 1986 during the latter stages of the Cold War. I've witnessed first-hand the Berlin wall, the East German border guards, the patrol dogs, and the border crossing checkpoints. I also had the experience of guarding Nazi-party member Rudolf Hess in Spandau Prison. After leaving Berlin in 1987 I had various other military postings, one of which was to South Armagh in Northern Ireland during "The Troubles".

After leaving the army I knocked around testing a few jobs, but eventually got into the security and investigations world. After many years in this industry I started my own part-time business as a private investigator but cut that short to move to South Africa, where I reside today.

Now, I am venturing into something I love - writing. As a new thriller author (of many books to come) I hope to give my readers many action-packed stories they will love.
