Nigel Conway Partis was born in 1949 in Forest Gate - London. His father was an ex Regimental Sergeant Major and he grew up just after the war in an atmosphere of repression and strong discipline. This served to water the seeds of rebellion that ultimately germinated a few years later.
He was always interested in writing, and often won school prizes for his essays and poetry, but was too lazy to pursue his dream of writing novels!
Entering the Army in 1963 he served as a professional soldier for 6 years, seeing action in Aden and Africa, before leaving to take up a position as bodyguard to one of the richest men in Europe. A highly remunerative and satisfying position.
He had always loved music and learned to play the guitar and drums. Through his love of playing in rock bands,the lure of continuing easy and plentiful money drew him into the shady world of the drugs and music subculture .
Eventually he became a drug dealer, moving on the 'fringes' of criminality. In 1975 he moved to West Wales and opened a recording studio.
Then,one evening in 1979, he experienced a tremendous and life changing spiritual encounter with Jesus, and as a result he eventually became a minister. He and his wife are both Christians, and now they travel and teach and minister healing all over the world, though mainly in Africa.
He has written 4 books. One Christian novel 'The Dragonmaster',which has received 'rave' reviews from all over the world, then a 'teaching' non-fiction book about the spiritual relevance of UFOs, - 'UFOs and the sons of God.'
His latest work is his autobiography Spiritual 'Disneyland', detailing his colourful and sometimes darkly interesting life. It contains candid confessions and illustrates that we are saved by God's grace alone. There are also wonderful descriptions of some amazing spiritual experiences and healings that have taken place during ministry.
The fourth book is a biography about a disabled African hunter.
He is currently writing the sequel to his much applauded novel The Dragonmaster, it is entitled 'The Lion, The War and The Witchdoctor'.
