ALL ABOUT NICK
Nick Wasiliev was born in Sydney, Australia in 1993 and 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.
Upon completing a degree in Development Studies and Creative Writing in 2016 at Macquarie University, he became a sports, music and arts journalist specialising in radio, podcasts and in print. His sports journalism saw him published in Green and Gold Rugby, Rugby.com.au and Rugby League Player Magazine, while his work on music and culture saw him also published in Music Feeds, Good Intent, Hunter and Bligh and Music Insight. He also had short stories published in The Quarry.
Today, Nick lives in the leafy Sydney suburb of Lane Cove with his partner, and works in the Australian book industry as Booktopia’s Social Media Specialist. He also serves as producer and occasional host for the Green and Gold Rugby sports podcast, and as Marketing Manager from Indigenous NGO, the Bawurra Foundation.
An advocate for men’s mental health, When Men Cry is his debut novel.
