VJ Books Presents Author Nick Stone!

Author Erik Storey Nick Stone was born on Halloween 1966 in Cambridge, England. His father is the famous and frequently controversial historian Norman Stone and his mother descends from one of Haiti's oldest families, the Aubrys. Her uncle was the first finance minister to Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier, Haiti's infamous dictator, but he fell foul of the regime when he openly criticized its murderous ways, and was imprisoned and tortured in Fort Dimanche, Haiti's notorious prison.

When he was 6 months old, Nick was sent to Haiti to live with his grandparents, where he stayed until he was 4, returning to England in 1970. As a teenager he was a keen amateur boxer but gave it up to study history at Cambridge University. He returned to Haiti regularly between 1970 and 1982, crossing paths - in his teens - with Father Jean Bertrand Aristide, the priest who would become Haiti's first democratically elected President. Stone returned to Haiti in 1996, which is when and where the plot for his first novel - Mr. Clarinet - took shape.

Published in January 2006, 'Mr Clarinet' became a critical and commercial success in the UK, reaching number 12 on the paperback bestseller lists, and number 3 in Australia. Mr Clarinet has been translated into 12 languages.

Stone's second novel, King of Swords - a prequel to Mr Clarinet, set in Cocaine Cowboy era Miami - was published in hardcover in the UK in August 2007. King of Swords has met with equally strong critical acclaim in the UK, with several reviewers considering the novel superior to his debut.

Stone is currently writing his third novel, a sequel to Mr Clarinet, set in modern day Miami and Cuba.

Stone is married and presently lives in London, England.
