Aric Davis is a horror, young adult, mystery and thriller author from Grand Rapids Michigan, where he lives with his wife and daughter. The author started as body piercer which he did for more than fifteen years before he became a full time author. He is an aficionado of punk rock and is always looking for an opportunity to promote any good bands he finds. He always had a lifelong passion for reading which is probably what got him into a career as an author. He had always dreamed of becoming a published author for years but never got around to writing anything. He wanted it so bad but since he had a demanding job, he never had the time to do it, it remained just that for years. It was not until he published “Nickel Plated,” the first novel of the “Nickel” series which became a bestseller that he quit his job to become a full time author. He now has nearly a dozen novels and a couple of novellas.

Davis started writing professionally in 2007 and is now a creative writer and instructional designer. This means that he can do anything from putting together a blog post, editing a peer’s work, and writing scripts for motion graphic videos. He has said that he loves it when he writes something that makes his clients minds go gaga. Aric Davis loves working on nonfiction projects but writing unfettered when he does his fiction novels is even better. When he is not working at creative writing and creating instructional manuals, he enjoys writing fiction and reading, riding roller coasters, listening to punk music, and cooking with and for family. Fun fact about Aris is that he once played as a goalkeeper for two days for the Griffins. It happened that Jimmy Howard was trying out with the Red Wings and since he was free he offered to train with them while they found a professional goalie.

As for his influences, Aric Davis has said that he loves to write about powerful female characters. He finds inspiration from his wife and mother who are both very strong women and he hopes that his daughter grows up to be one. With such influences in his life, he has come to understand the type of personality that he often writes onto the page. As for authors that have influenced his writing, he cites the likes of George RR Martin, Stephen King, Gillian Flynn and Andrew Vachss among many others. It is not surprising that his works have often been likened to the wonderful works of Stephen King. Apart from the “Nickel” series of novels, he has also written other bestselling titles including “The Fort” and “Rough Men.” He has also contributed to the “Dead Man” series of novels.
“Nickel Plated” the debut novel of the “Nickel” series by Aric Davis tells the story of Nickel, a teenage boy who is forced to become a survivor.

For the longest time, his life has been a tossup as one scribble of a social worker’s pen could do him in. He is a product of the system and had the luck of living with a great dad for a few years before he died and he was plunged back into uncertainty. However, Nickel still remembers everything his father had taught him and ever since he ran away from a hellish foster home, he has been using that knowledge to survive. He is a twelve year old boy that has been making a killing selling drugs to high school students, working as a private investigator, and blackmailing pedophiles that he traps online. Things get interesting when Arrow hires his services to find Shelbym, her little sister that had gone missing. Nickel thinks the child has run away at worst or maybe some pervert had kidnapped her. He gets right to work scouring the streets of the little girl’s neighborhood and the internet but what he unearths could not have been uglier. Behind the well kept lawns of the suburban neighborhoods, he finds adults with souls black as soot who sell children. They are not going to let a twelve year child destroy their business and they will come at him with everything they have got.

“Tunnel Vision” by Aric Davis is a noir work that tells the story of long overdue justice and an unlikely friendship. Fifteen years ago, Mandy Reasoner had been brutally killed and Duke her boyfriend had been sent to prison for the crime. But then June and Betty who are best friends learn that the dead woman had been June’s long forgotten aunt and they are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery. There is a growing community of people that believe Duke was wrongly convicted and these people galvanize the two girls to take action. Their action alongside that of the community will introduce them not only to Duke, but also to a tough as nails and canny teenage private investigator named Nickel. He is in the process of getting his life together when the girls approach him. They make an excellent team even though the PI is working on his own revenge mission even as he unearths complex web of lies in the Mandy Murder mystery. But as they learn more facts about the mystery the less clear the road to the truth becomes.

Aric Davis’ novel “The Fort” opens to three boys finally completing their tree house that they call the fort. But then in the summer of 1987 something strange happens as Luke, Scott and Tim spot a killer doing his thing from their tree house deep in the forest. They had seen the man holding a gun to Molly Petersons head and ran back home scared witless. She was a sixteen year old that had gone missing and the police had been searching for her for several days. But the police and the community do not believe the boys even as the search for the missing girl dies down. The boys are certain the man who is holding her captive are in the nearby forest and they take it upon themselves to save Molly from a sense of urgency and honor.
