Nick Stephenson was born and raised in Cambridgeshire, England and will now refer to himself in the first person. My approach to writing is to hit hard, hit fast, and leave as few spelling errors as possible. I write thrillers, suspense novels, and the occasional witty postcard, all of which are designed to get your pulse pounding. Don’t let my headshot fool you – I’m actually full colour, on most days.

My books are a mixture of mystery, action, and humour. If you’re looking for a good place to start, take a look at my Leopold Blake series of thrillers, available now at www.noorosha.com/books and out soon on Amazon, Sony, Barnes & Noble, and the iTunes store.

The Cost of Self Publishing is Focusing on the Wrong Thing

We all know it’s tough to get visibility out there in author-land, not to mention how hard you need to work (at first) to get those early reviews and mailing list subscribers. After all, you just busted your butt to get your work out there – and now you’ve got to bust your butt all over again to get noticed?


Yeah… I’ve felt that particular sinking feeling myself many times in the past.

"Fun novel. The main character Leopold Blake is a bit Sherlockian in his deduction skills. The book is full of action and there were some moments with eyeballs that made me pretty squeamish. Some of the situations they found themselves in got a bit ov" Read more of this review »

"Short and to the point, that's how I like to write reviews. Here goes.

Leopold Blake continues to do what he does best, see the details that others don't. In this sequel, Nick Stephenson added a slightly more descriptive aspect to his writing and I fo" Read more of this review »
