Henry Nixon was born in Bramwell St. in the dock area of Sunderland in 1939. Due to constant bombing of the area he was moved to Lingfield, Surrey where he was educated and later went to college to study Accountancy.
He married Diane in 1972 and they have one daughter together. He went on to study at two writing schools and his work has been acclaimed by many readers. Reading bedtime stories to his daughter stirred his interest further, and he embarked on a trilogy entitled The Orphans, which has since developed into The Jew from Lodz.
Henry is currently working on several new projects and has already completed a follow-up to his first novel.
