About Us

My Bio


A native of Los Angeles, Nick Nolan met his husband Jaime in 1987 and began building a life together. With BA degree in-hand, Nick--inspired by the works of author Paul Monette--began the Tales from Ballena Beach series: Strings Attached, Double Bound, and Wide Asleep. Nolan's Black as Snow became the #1 Amazon Kindle Bestseller in the United Kingdom and #12 in the USA following its release in 2011 and was subsequently translated into the German thriller Prophetengift. His newest work, memoir No Place Like Home: Coping with the Decline and Death of Toxic* Parents breaks new ground in the self-help genre by weaving the story of his tumultuous upbringing and his violent father’s death from probable Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (Concussion Syndrome) within keen clinical perspectives. Today Nick and Jaime -  a Creative Director -  and their two retrievers divide their time between a home in the San Fernando Valley and a mountaintop cabin. Nick enjoys working out, cooking, classic cars, brunches with J, and dinners with close friends.
