Jaime Flores (born March 25, 1961)

Anniversary: October 1, 1987
Married: November 23, 2013

Nick Nolan is an American author known for his series “Tales from Ballena Beach,” which transforms traditional fairy tales into contemporary gay thrillers. Nolan was originally self-published and garnered three Book of the Year awards for Gay/Lesbian Fiction: one for Strings Attached and two for Double Bound. After signing with Amazon Publishing in 2009 (now making him Amazon Publishing’s most senior author) his novel Black as Snow hit #1 on Amazon’s Kindle list in the United Kingdom; Nick’s current novel Wide Asleep was released by Amazon in 2014. Jaime “J” Flores is an award winning graphic designer and currently serves as Creative Services Manager for a nationally ranked architectural firm. A first generation Mexican-American, Flores studied in Los Angeles, Paris, and Tokyo, and he holds both a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Communication and an Associative Arts degree in Fashion Design. J is fluent in English, Spanish, and French; he craves traveling and has toured South America, Mexico, Europe, and Asia. J is also an avid skier of the Canadian and the American Rockies. The couple maintains a midcentury modern home in the San Fernando Valley and a cabin in the mountains, where J paints in oils and Nick writes. Nick and Jaime were both born in 1961, exactly 40 weeks apart to the day…, which means Jaime was conceived on the day Nick was born.

“In 1986 I was managing a furniture store, and J came in looking for a bookcase. That night I attended a party on the other side of town and J walked in the door! At the time, we were dating others, so we only chatted but did not connect. A year later J walked into another store I was tending, we enjoyed Thai food soon after, and we have been together ever since. For 27 years we’ve savored a relationship seasoned with love, friendship (and betrayal), hard work, college and grad school, coming out, the AIDS crisis, heartbreak, earthquakes, home remodeling, thrift store furniture, wacky automobiles, rescued dogs, cocktails, and esoteric jokes." Nolan is a believer in reincarnation and feels they have been together before. “During one hypnotic regression,” Nick reports, “I saw J and myself—not looking like ourselves but recognizable—in a Spanish monastery. We were young and in love, but after the dictatorial abbot surmised the depth of our relationship he had J shipped off to another cloister and I never saw him again. I came out of the regression sobbing, my face drenched.” Happily, this lifetime continues to progress more smoothly. -Nick Nolan

Together since 1987: 28 years.
