N. Lombardi Jr, the N for Nicholas, has spent over half his life in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, working as a groundwater geologist. Nick can speak five languages: Swahili, Thai, Lao, Chinese, and Khmer (Cambodian).

In 1997, while visiting Lao People's Democratic Republic, he witnessed the remnants of a secret war that had been waged for nine years, among which were children wounded from leftover cluster bombs. Driven by what he saw, he worked on The Plain of Jars for the next eight years.
Nick maintains a website with content that spans most aspects of the novel: The Secret War, Laotian culture, Buddhism etc. http://plainofjars.net

His second novel, Journey Towards a Falling Sun, is set in the wild frontier of northern Kenya.

Who is Big Brother Anyway?

Although much of the buzz has dissipated, there had been a lot of heated discussion concerning the government spying on its citizens as well as others around the world. Do we really have anything to fear (assuming of course we're innocent of anything illegal)?

In my opinion, (and you know what that's like if you've read my Opinions post), the concerns are rather negligible for us ordinary slobs. Bu Read more of this blog post »

“The trouble with life is that we lead it forwards and understand it backwards.”
N. Lombardi Jr.

“I gave you a few laughs and showed you a good time, but there was no future with me. So although it was fun while it lasted, you made up your mind to choose the stability and security a rich man can offer.”
She shook her head. “No.”
“No?”
“If you look in your heart, you know that’s not true.”
“So, what is it then, he went into a jealous rage and he threatened
you?”
“Yes.”
“With your life?”
“No.”
“Well then...”
“With yours.”
N. Lombardi Jr., Journey Towards a Falling Sun

“He watched it on the TV. Everyone watches TV.”
Bodine directed his face to Ryan’s, knowing exactly where the witness box was, his black glasses reflecting the ceiling lights above. “I don’t,” he said with a deadpan face.
Nathaniel Bodine, blind lawyer”
N. Lombardi Jr., Justice Gone
