nick-brown-300Nick Brown found initial success with his Agent of Rome novels published by Hodder & Stoughton. Described by The Times as ‘gripping’, the critically acclaimed series has now reached six volumes and has been translated into Spanish, Italian and Dutch.¬† He was inspired to write historical fiction by the work of C.J. Sansom and when he discovered the research about the Roman ‘secret service’ he knew he’d found a compelling angle for his protagonist, Cassius Corbulo. Nick is currently adapting the books into a television series.

He has ‘ghosted’ a number of screenplays in a variety of genres, from science fiction to family drama.¬† His high – action thriller First Duty has recently been optioned By Dynamic Pictures and will be directed by Misko `Massanyi.

After completing a history degree at the University of Sussex, Nick travelled to Kathmandu, Nepal, working as a sports coach/tutor at an orphanage. Back in England he completed a PGCE at the University of Exeter and went on to teach for five years in the UK. His next post was as a teacher of English and history at an international school in Warsaw. He feels that his experience in both subjects has informed his writing and that ten years as a teacher has taught him the value of collaboration.

A voracious devourer of music, film, TV and books of all kinds, Nick lives with his wife in Norwich.
