About Nigel Billington

I'm a self-published author, currently writing in the sub-genre of sci-fi thriller - a mix of soft science-fiction and fast-paced present-time reality - presented in my Josh Brannon Sci-fi Action Thriller series: a work in progress with two novels released so far. You can find my novels on Amazon and other online book retailers.

A little of my history

I grew up in Dorset in the South of England. Leaving school at sixteen, I joined the British army in 1985 and served in an infantry regiment, first stationed in Berlin 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 tried and tested a few jobs, but eventually moved 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.

What else?

Genres I enjoy most: thriller and science-fiction. I do enjoy others, as long as the story-line is interesting, but I tend to gravitate towards thriller authors (espionage, action, conspiracy) and sci-fi authors (space opera, alternative realities, dystopian).

I love movies. I'm generally a very busy person but I do make time to watch a movie or two at the weekend. My favourite TV series has to be the X-Files. I have the whole series (plus X-Files movies) which I have watched a few times over.
