Nick Purdon was born in 1976 in East London in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. After a few moves around the country, his family settled in the Western Cape city of Cape Town in 1981 where he has lived since. Nick began writing poetry seriously at the age of 27, though he had been writing on and off
since his teenage years. Along with various projects with his sister in web and graphic design and visual art, he intends to follow this collection up with more poetry in the future, as well as a collection of short stories and childrens stories. He is also active in the field of addiction counseling and working on a full-length book detailing his own addiction experiences.
