GET TO KNOW THE WRITER
Nick Wasiliev was raised in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. Growing up in a family of journalists and authors, he began writing at the age of three, and wrote his first book at the age of seven.
Today he is an author, podcaster, content creator and freelance journalist. His debut novel When Men Cry was published in 2019, receiving audience and industry recognition from the likes of John Marsden, Richard Champion de Crespigny OAM and more.
Nick works in the publishing industry at Booktopia, Australia’s largest online bookstore, as a senior content producer specialising in video and audio production. He is the co-founder, producer and host of Booktopia's podcast, Tell Me What To Read, and has his own podcast miniseries A Little Idea, which focuses on debunking the book publishing process for newcomers.
Outside the book industry, Nick’s work in journalism has seen him published in Green and Gold Rugby and Rugby.com.au, amongst other titles, and he is the producer and host of The Dropped Kick-Off podcast. His work in music and culture has seen him published in Music Feeds, Good Intent and Music Insight.
Nick serves as an ambassador for non-profit mental health organisation LIVIN, with ten percent of his earnings from When Men Cry going to the charity. He also serves as Marketing Manager for Indigenous non-profit organisation, the Bawurra Foundation.
He currently lives in Sydney with his partner, and when not working he can be found going on adventures, enjoying the occasional glass of wine, and playing video games.
