Thanks to Peter Rozovsky at his excellent blog Detectives Beyond Borders I’ve come across a new-to-me author, Mike Nicol. See his post Black Heart, or Why you should spend your pennies on a book by Mike Nicol.
Mike Nicol is a journalist and writer, and teacher of online writing courses on creative writing and non-fiction narrative. He lives in Cape Town. He has had writer-in-residence positions at UCT and the University of Essen, Germany, and in Berlin under the German Academic Exchange Service’s Artists-in-Berlin grant.
