Coming from Gateshead, the author Nik Morton is a British writer who hails from the United Kingdom, as he also goes under the name of Ross Morton as well, as he writes his unique brand of mystery thriller, science-fiction and fantasy novels. Writing for a long time now he has built himself quite a following, having had his first short story published in 1971, and has since then released over 120 stories and a number of articles brought out to date. Featuring characters such as his infamous Robert Hale creation, star and leading protagonist of a long line of western books that have proven to be extremely popular.

Early and Personal Life

Growing up in Gateshead in the United Kingdom where he was born and raised, the British author to be Nik Morton always had a strong passion for both reading and literature from a very early age, as he took in his experiences from the world around him, thus creating his unique brand of thrillers in the process. Always interested in fiction, primarily immersing himself in the world of spies and espionage, as he has maintained a creative mindset throughout his life. Whilst many of his characters hail from various different countries, such as America, he always kept his style and tone resolutely British.

An illustrator by trade as well, he has a variety of different talents and skills which he has acquired during the course of his life, many which he’s managed to source back into his writing, thus creating more involving and engaging narratives for the reader to immerse themselves in. Drawing cartoons and illustrating comics, he has his hand in a number of different creative wells, which he is able to mine for future projects, as he’s developed both his voice and his style. All this has seen him take the trajectory of his writing career to where he is today, bringing along his wealth of experience to the thriller genre.

With a past working in the Navy, as well as being ex IT, he has more than enough experience derived from his military background to be writing about the military, as he is able to give it a sense of realism that others have previously been unable to match on his level. Working as an Editor in Chief for Solstice Publishing as well, he was able to craft his experiences into well formatted and finely structured stories and narratives. Not only that, but he has been writing since 1971, since which time he has been producing articles, short stories and novel, leading up to him being the master of his craft that he is today.

Writing Career

Arriving on the literary scene in 1971, Nik Morton made his initial debut with the release of his first short story to a respected publication. Since then he has managed to create a writing career comprised of over 120 short stories along with a collection of essays and articles. This, alongside his many novels, has led him to build a highly lucrative and influential legacy, with many of his early books still being read today.

Winning various awards and competitions as well, he is no stranger to critical recognition too, with many of his stories being put forwards for prizes. Gaining both critical and commercial success over the years, he has garnered attention both nationally and internationally, as his readership has rapidly grown worldwide. With his writing career going from strength-to-strength at an increasing rate., it seems he will continue to write from now on into the foreseeable future.

A Sudden Vengeance Waits

Originally published in 2010, this was a stand-alone novel from Nik Morton which brought his readers a straight forwards and entertaining vigilante tale. Fast paced, yet not too brash or over-the-top, it combines a quality ensemble of characters all coming together to ask the question as to what creates a vigilante? Setting up a laid back tone it is deceptively simple at first, as it draws the reader in, slowly immersing them into the world he has engagingly crafted.

In the English south coast town of Alverbank tragedy has struck after a burglar has killed Gran, leaving the Knight family to pick-up the pieces. Facing up to the apparent threat of ‘broken Britain’ whilst attending the funeral, as a vigilante is formed in the wake of a whole host of similar deaths in the local community. A ‘Black Knight’ is on the loose and, taking the law into their own hands, is doing what they feel the police are unable to. When will they cross the line and kill though? Is vigilantism an acceptable method of justice? What will occur when they find that a sudden vengeance waits?

When the Flowers are in Bloom

First published in 2012 on the 6th of September through the Solstice Publishing label, this was another stand-alone novel that delivered what Morton does best. Consisting of sixteen stories, it provides a thematic insight into the interests of the author, giving it a sense of serenity given the subject matter. Telling the stories with a sincerity that brings the reader in, it clearly articulates the ideas of the author, whilst also allowing the reader to draw their own conclusion.

Examining the state of the human condition whilst taking in a scope that travels all across the world, this global selection of stories aims to answer some of the bigger questions. Coming to terms with everyday realities like having a disability, or dealing with the horrors of war, it manages to look at the effect of basic values such as forgiveness and redemption. With the proceeds of this novel going to tsunami victims and those affected by the Japanese earthquake, it’s easy to see what the author was looking to achieve here. Charting tragedy it hopes to look ahead to when the flowers are in bloom.
