Nick Stead began the very first draft of Hybrid at fifteen in his GCSE years at school. What was originally intended to be a short story quickly grew into ideas not just for a full length novel, but an entire series, and with the realisation of this his dream to one day be published was born.
Driven by his life long passion for werewolves and the horror genre, Nick gave the manuscript two major rewrites before finally securing the book deal with Wild Wolf Publishing in 2015.
Nick has also written several short stories which you can read for free on his author site. He mostly writes supernatural horror, although he does have plans for a dark fantasy some time in the future. Fellow writers at Huddersfield Author’s Circle have likened Nick’s style to a werewolf – he likes to grab the reader by the throat at the very beginning of a story and not let go until he drags them to its bloody conclusion!
Aside from writing, he also enjoys reading, video games, movies, TV, LARP and rock/metal music.
