Short Bio

Nicholas C. Rossis

Nicholas Rossis lives to write and does so from his cottage on the edge of a magical forest in Athens, Greece. When not composing epic fantasies or short sci-fi stories, he chats with fans and colleagues, writes blog posts, walks his dog, and enjoys the antics of two silly cats, one of whom claims his lap as home. His children’s book, Runaway Smile, earned a finalist slot in the 2015 International Book Awards and in the 2015 IAN Book of the Year Awards. You can read it for free on his blog.

He has also written the epic fantasy series, Pearseus. The final book in the series is currently penned and expected in fall 2015.

Many of his short stories have appeared on various collections and anthologies. He has published The Power of Six, a collection of short sci-fi stories that includes his award-winning short story, I Come in Peace, and Infinite Waters, a collection of short speculative fiction stories.

Nicholas is all around the Internet, but the best place to connect with him would be on his blog,

What readers are saying about Nick’s fantasies:

“Most avid readers still have books from their childhood which they read over and over again. ‘Runaway Smile’ has joined the list.”
– Juliet Aharoni on Runaway Smile

“From the very first sentence I realized I was not reading a book, I was going on an adventure.”
– Anne Peterson on Runaway Smile

“I really can’t think of another series that tied the world of fantasy and scifi together so well since Pern.”
– Joseph Long on Pearseus

“What I loved about these three books was the author’s ability to weave in ancient Greek myths,cultural and historic influences; it felt like ancient Greece, complete with warring city-states, but set on a far-away planet.”
– Catherine Mackay on Pearseus

“I found myself looking forward to coming home so I could dig into the next story. Each story pulls you in to its unique little universe and takes you on a ride where the tracks are hidden, and you can’t see the corners up ahead.”
– Nat Russo on Infinite Waters

“Philosophical ideas woven into science-fiction stories that read like classic stories by the masters, often with a delightful, thought-provoking and unexpected twist at the end.”
– Jamie Maltman on The Power of Six
