Author, Novelist, Writer, & Public Speaker


Nick Shamhart was born in Sandusky, Ohio on the winter solstice in the years before Americans started electing actors as President. He still lives in that mostly vowel state under protest from half of the voices in his head. The other half could care less where they reside, because they are too busy yammering on endlessly about everything from Sit-Com theme songs to theology and metaphysics.

Nick is not a genre writer. His novels are character based. The result is whatever the story becomes, from romantic comedy to drama or thriller. He is the author of the theologically and psychologically driven series based on the afterlife called the Balance Books.  The romantic comedy, “The Knight’s Wife” is based on the concept of how often women are actually the ones who perform the hero’s work and then some. “The Fog Within” is Nick’s bestselling and highly acclaimed dramatic look into the mind of a severely autistic woman. He lives in Cleveland with his wife and two daughters.

Articles and short stories written by Nick have appeared in such magazines as: National Geographic and National Geographic Adventure, Rolling Stone, Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle, Men’s Journal, Esquire, Sci FiMen’s Health, Blender, Vibe, Outdoor, and more.

  1. Nick, I came here as a courtesy to one who subscribed to SeptuagenarianJourney. I am not subscribing to your site out of the same courtesy. You have intriguing subject matter, posts, your bio, some scary tats and a series I am fascinated by. I want to sample all of them–well, with the exception of your tats. Definitely not your tats! As soon as I’ve satisfied my appetite and obligation for the other books I’ve downloaded to my kindle, I shall purchase either “Grey” or “Raven”. Until then, best of luck with your writing–though I don’t think you’ll need it.
