Nick Martell was born in Guelph, Ontario, where he lived for 7 years before moving to Huntington, New York. After elementary school, Nick went on to attend Long Island Lutheran Middle and High School. Nick started writing in 5th grade, beginning to explore the world that would fully emerge in The Kingdom of Liars.
After graduating from Long Island Lutheran High School, Nick attended Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. While attending, Nick was a Head Resident for Residence Life, a member of the Executive Board for a Fraternity and Inter-Fraternity Council, spent a semester abroad in France, and was a breaststroker for the varsity men’s swim team after joining the team as a walk-on his freshman year. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and a minor in French.
Since then, Nick has done a wide range of jobs that had nothing to do with his major in university from a Quality Insurance Tester for an engineering company in New York City to a volunteer on an organic farm in Ireland.
The Kingdom of Liars is his debut novel.
