Meet the creative team
Creator & Author
Born in Central London during the 1970’s, Nick left school age 14 years of age with no qualifications to try and make his own way in the world.
From an early age he was obsessed with Horror films, always found in front of an old black & white TV watching the Saturday night late Horror double bill, enthralled by the stories and characters, which helped create the story and characters for London Gothic.
Over time he progressed from running printing machines and through hard work & determination achieved ownership of a print company where his actual day job is Group Managing Director, Nick also had a stint as a co producer in a west end show but due to the unfortunate coronavirus outbreak was forced to close.
Nick has had the story and characters in his vivid some would say mad imagination for over 30 years and in his words; “Thought I had better get this down on paper before I croak”
