Nick Quantrill was born and raised in Hull, an isolated industrial city in East Yorkshire. His Joe Geraghty crime novels, "Broken Dreams" and "The Late Greats" and "The Crooked Beat" are published by Caffeine Nights.
A prolific short story writer, Nick's work has appeared in Volumes Eight, Nine and Ten of "The Mammoth Book of Best British Crime" alongside the genre's most respected names. In 2011, Nick became the first person to hold the role of 'Writer in Residence' at Hull Kingston Rovers, contributing exclusive fiction to the match day programme and assisting with the club's literacy programme.
Nick's stories are both entertaining and thought provoking, and although the settings may be local to him, the ideas and issues resonate on a much wider basis.
When not writing fiction, Nick contributes reviews and essays to a variety of football and music websites. He lives in Hull with his wife, daughter, cat and the constant fear Hull City will let him down. For more information, please see www.nickquantrill.co.uk.
