About the author (2009)

Since 1999, Nicholas Perry has been writing in one form or another.  It started out for personal enjoyment and it soon became his hobby. As a great stress reliever, Nick tends to get lost in his own world when he's writing.  Not only does he write fiction, but his first writings actually came in poetry form in high school.  Writing really has become his passion and he tries to get in some form of writing each and every night of the week.  Along with writing, Nick enjoys reading, playing sports, and hanging out with his friends.

Homecoming is actually his first novel being brought into print.  Even though he started writing in high school, he credits his creative writing course in college for really inspiring him to have the courage to open his mind and be as creative as he wants to be. It all started with his first "murder story" and just took off from there.  Nick's extreme love of fiction lets his mind wander and become as creative as he wants, while still keeping the reader interested.   

Through great description and realistic dialogue, he is able to make the reader feel like they are in the book.  His characters are interesting and unique.  This allows for him to try and bring a sense of "reality" to his work.
