Jaime Flores & Nick Nolan

Nick Nolan was born and raised in Los Angeles, the city he has haunted for over two decades. Working nights and weekends selling furniture to put himself through college, Nolan went on to direct a group home for homeless and abused GLBT youth. During his scant spare time, he began writing. Inspired by the works of writers like Armistead Maupin, Paul Russell, and Paul Monette, he penned his debut novel, Strings Attached, the first in a planned trilogy. Shortly after its release, Strings Attached was named the 2006 Gay/Lesbian Book of the Year by ForeWord Magazine, hit #1 in Gay Fiction on Amazon.com, and spent nearly a year in that genre's Top 10. Two years later Nolan's second thriller Double Bound won Book of the Year awards for Gay/Lesbian Fiction by both ForeWord Magazine and ReaderViews.

Nick, his partner Jaime, and their two beloved dogs divide their time between their home in the San Fernando Valley and their cabin high in the mountains of California. Together since 1987 (Anniversary October 1), they married on November 23, 2013.

In 2009 Nick was delighted to sign with AmazonEncore, so that his two novels might reach a wider audience. AmazonEncore released an edited and improved 'Strings Attached' on March 9, 2010, and 'Double Bound' followed on May 25. 'Black as Snow' was published by AmazonEncore on 2011 and 'Wide Asleep' in 2014.

Wide Asleep won a 2014 Rainbow Awards as Best Gay Paranormal Romance.


Nick Nolan is an American author known for his series “Tales from Ballena Beach,” which transforms traditional fairy tales into contemporary gay thrillers. Nick, his partner Jaime Flores, and their two beloved dogs divide their time between their home in the San Fernando Valley and their cabin high in the mountains of California. Together since 1987 (Anniversary October 1), they married on November 23, 2013. Nick and Jaime were both born in 1961 (Nick on March 14), exactly 40 weeks apart to the day…, which means Jaime was conceived on the day Nick was born.

Days of Love chronicles more than 700 LGBT couples throughout history, spanning 2000 years from Alexander the Great to the most recent winner of a Lambda Literary Award. Many of the contemporary couples share their stories on how they met and fell in love, as well as photos from when they married or of their families. Included are professional portraits by Robert Giard and Stathis Orphanos, paintings by John Singer Sargent and Giovanni Boldini, and photographs by Frances Benjamin Johnson, Arnold Genthe, and Carl Van Vechten among others. “It's wonderful. Laying it out chronologically is inspired, offering a solid GLBT history. I kept learning things. I love the decision to include couples broken by death. It makes clear how important love is, as well as showing what people have been through. The layout and photos look terrific.” Christopher Bram “I couldn’t resist clicking through every page. I never realized the scope of the book would cover centuries! I know that it will be hugely validating to young, newly-emerging LGBT kids and be reassured that they really can have a secure, respected place in the world as their futures unfold.” Howard Cruse “This international history-and-photo book, featuring 100s of detailed bios of some of the most forward-moving gay persons in history, is sure to be one of those bestsellers that gay folk will enjoy for years to come as reference and research that is filled with facts and fun.” Jack Fritscher
