Who Am I?
My name is Nicholas J. Finch, and welcome to my website.
Having successfully plunged into publishing gay fiction for a wider audience, my intention is to break the mold here and offer stories that are challenging, exciting, and driven by great characters.
I aim to engage you.
If you’re reading this, I hope that means I’ve succeeded.
My background lies in various professional writing fields and craft endeavors, all of which have enabled me to think differently about how I work, and what I create.
Stay with me, because there’s lots more to come, from full length novels to anthology pieces.
My Published Works
Beginning with a series of emails sent back and forth between the UK and the USA, this novella is the story of how two men, one a Los Angeles detective and the other an Oxford research student, find themselves drawn to each other despite leading very different lives on opposite sides of the world.
Their relationship starts with a professional offer of assistance and through instant messaging, texting and phone calls they invade each others’ lonely and yet busy days, learning about themselves and slowly falling in love as they discover they both need something from the other until they finally get a meeting face to face and can get up close and personal.
Imagine working everyday for the person you love, but can never truly have.
When Michael Oliver’s neatly laid out career path took a sharp right turn from Afghanistan to Washington D.C., he figured his training as a US Army Ranger would never let him down.
But swapping fatigues and combat gear for a dark suit and earpiece, he almost paid the supreme price guarding the Speaker of the House.
Then he found himself guarding the quirky little Senator from Los Angeles whom no one ever imagined might come to win the White House.
Not that he’d ever imagined falling in love with the man either, but there was no escaping it.
Michael had a plan though. It was a well thought out, long term plan that would have allowed him to finally retire away from the one person he could never truly have, and focus all his efforts on the Patron Saints Winery he’d bought years before in California.
But a bunch of domestic terrorists and a woman with a grudge, decided to get in the way first, leaving Michael and his Secret Service Team to do the unthinkable in their fight to save the President of the United States:

Conversations in Real Time:
By Jessica· · June 15, 2017
A fast but fun read. The format is surprisingly engaging from the very beginning and functions as an awesome character study. One of the best LGBTQ romances I have read in a long time.
By JanetIsis · I recently re-read this book. I had intended to merely skim the text to refresh my memory to write this review but…
Instead, I was drawn into the story once again. Wonderful characterization and story building make this a pleasing read. The characters Daniel and James are *real*. They have good days and bad, worries and joys – and they manage to share them even though physically they are separated by an ocean. The build is slow, moving from colleagues to friends to lovers in a progression that never seems rushed, but doesn’t drag, either.
“Conversations in Real Time” is about conversations – the “getting to know you” conversations we all have when you meet someone and the connection those conversations can bring.
Reading “Conversations in Real Time” will make you laugh, cry and root for a happily ever after – and leave you with a smile.
The Secret Service Agent:
By Paula · · December 26, 2018Take a deeper look behind the scenes of the Secret Service and the events caused by one person’s obsessive need to invent the perfect family. The Secret Service Agent will keep you swiping the pages all the way to the end.
By bigbunnimal · · January 9, 2019An interesting book that kept me entertained throughout the whole winter holiday period! The characters are multidimensional and likable, and there are plot twists galore! My most favorite thing about this book is the love the two main characters have for each other is really heartfelt.
Recommended for lovers of romance novels!

Great read, a real page turner. Well created characters that you want to know so much more about but the plot keeps drawing you away and giving such perfect action, dialogue and more action. A must read book.
