About Author Nicholas Trandahl

Author Nicholas Trandahl Nicholas Trandahl is an author of literary fiction and poetry, and he's been published by Swyers Publishing since 2012. He has written three novels, a book of poetry, and his debut collection of short stories was published by Swyers in the summer of 2015. His short fiction is also published online by River Ram Press.
Nicholas writes in a very traditional sense, typing up the first drafts of his literary fiction stories on a 1950 Smith-Corona typewriter, and he puts his poetry and story notes in writing journals that he takes everywhere with him. Nicholas' fiction consists of beautiful and delicate prose with an emphasis on human interaction, relationships, nature and light. His work is character-driven and emotional as opposed to action-packed. His fiction is heavily-influenced by the work of F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Cheever, James Salter, Ernest Hemingway, Raymond Carver, Truman Capote, and Virginia Woolf.
Nicholas lives in Wyoming, has two daughters, and is engaged to be married. He was born in 1984.

Clark's Turning Leaf

Clark's Turning LeafClark Grant, renowned Seattle writer of romantic poetry, has fallen into a literal and literary darkness. Depression, grim dark poetry, and a failed suicide attempt tarnish his recent past. In an effort to turn over a new leaf and make some much needed changes, Clark relocates to the rural Berkshires of western Massachusetts. In the forested hills of Massachusetts Clark relearns what it means to be a friend, a father, a lover, and a writer. But will newfound peace be lost when he's again forced to face depression and suicide? Can recently-discovered goodness and light withstand guilt and loss?

Clark's Turning Leaf is available at a number of online retailer's.

Lost Yellow

Lost YellowThis collection of poetry was written during dark times of my life as a form of self-medication for anxiety and depression. While I was deployed in the Middle East as a soldier in the U.S. Army these ailments overwhelmed me with such savagery that I was overcome and consumed by them. Being able to treat myself with writing and creativity kept me sane and functional when all else seemed to be spiraling out of control.

The Azure Wizard - A Legend of the Fallen Baronies

The Azure Wizard: A Legend of the Fallen BaroniesWizardcraft is dead. It is a part of the ancient past of the realm known as the Three Baronies. However, that is about to change. A young storyteller of a mountainous land in the north travels into the heart of the baronies to make something of himself. The storyteller finds himself in a tale of his own, one enveloped in adventure, danger, duty and love. At the heart of his tale glares the rebirth of Wizardcraft into the Three Baronies. As the only living wizard left in the realm, our storyteller finds himself up against impossible odds.

There are numerous things in the Three Baronies that would put the fledgling Wizard's life in danger from mythic beasts and barbaric tribes, to a murderous shape-shifting monster and an ancient prophetic order bent on the Wizard's destruction. This is a story of destiny and the return of magic. This is the story of The Azure Wizard.
