More About the Author

Sign up for my Tao of Boo newsletter for giveaways, free books, and announcements of new releases: http://eepurl.com/tOE89.

I believe the writer only creates half the story, and that you complete it by bringing your imagination, experience, and heart to the tale. I am happy to share the journey with you.

I've written more than 20 novels, about 80 short stories, four children's books, some comic books, screenplays, and a couple of non-fiction books, as well as five collaborations with J.R. Rain. Many of my tales are based on supernatural legends from the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and I also write mystery and suspense thrillers that are most often compared to the work of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

I've also published Liquid Fear and Chronic Fear with Amazon's Thomas & Mercer imprint and McFall with 47North, as well as a number of audiobooks and foreign translations. I love hearing from you, because you're the reason I do this, so let's connect! Learn more about my work at www.AuthorScottNicholson.com

Yeah, I really did cry as I read 'Our Future Together'. And I'm not much of a crier.

It was fascinating to get to see inside the mind of a very talented writer. These stories are both hilarious and touching. And so well written. It was one of those books where I started noticing and appreciating the word choice in addition to getting a good experience. I was sad when I finished the book.

I'm glad SN is finding so much success as of late and people are finally recognizing his genius. ;)

Thanks for sharing yourself with us.

I first bought this collection for a school project I was conducting. This book seemed not only interesting, and not enaging per se, but more of a different insight on a world of an author.

Scott Nicholson brought out some important ideas in his stories, including some that people take a life time to understand. To truly comprehend the magnitude in his words, opens up a broader perspective on not only literature but daily life lessons as well.

The story engagement was a little wary for me. The story lines were well established and his writing style is somewhat addicting, but I found the collection overall lacking. I believe that the connection to the reader was not there, that we felt and understood what he meant and what he was trying to present through stories, but I just couldn't relate or even attempt to relate to what was happening in the stories. The mixture of poems, essays, and stories was a little deceiving at first too. The stories were much more presentable in the connection than the poems. I felt the poems were more clever phrases verses clever meanings.

Overall, this book was interesting and opened a few new perspectives for me.

These Things Happened is a collection of four short stories, four poems, four essays and a chapter from one of Scott Nicholson's full-length novels.

1. Our Future Together - Story*
2. In Back of Time - Poem
3. Postcards From a Book Tour - Essay*
4. Everything Equals Nothing - Story
5. City of Dreams - Poem
6. The Red Plastic Bat - Story*
7. As I Die Lying - Chapter
8. Every Sunday She Dreams - Story
9. Transformation - Poem
10. Dr. Mann - Essay
11. Dead Cats and Rain - Story*
12. Four Stories, One Flight of Stairs - Poem
13. So You Want To Be a Writer? - Essay*

*My Favorites. I laughed (Postcards), got a little teary (Our Future Together), had a moment of melancholy (The Red Plastic Bat), cringed a little (Dead Cats) and laughed again (So you want to be a writer). If you're like me, a fan of short stories, you won't be disappointed. This book is a steal at 99 cents.

A compilation of poems, chapters and short stories from a writer's mind. I suppose all of us who write have items such as these stacked and stuffed in corners: poems and ideas, half-written stories, things written on napkins and tucked away. The poetry reminds me a bit of Rod McKuen, and if that isn't an age-giveaway, nothing is. It is also one of the highest compliments I could pay anyone. Scott has shared bits and pieces of himself with us in this compilation, and I am thankful to have it. It gives me hope that someday, all my napkin poems and half-written stories might see the light of day.

Thanks Scott, for being brave enough to share.

You find a little bit of everything in this book: poems, letters, articles, chapters of his novels, and short stories. This is a collection of stories that show the wide range of Scott Nicholson's writing. They are poignant, dark, sad at times but also very funny. If you don't know Scott Nicholson's writing or if you simply want to find out more about him, this is a good book to start!

The author suggests that reading this book is like stepping into his mind, and that afterward you may not like him. Not true. After reading THESE THINGS HAPPENED you develop an abiding respect for a man of letters who is unafraid to shine a light into the back rooms and closets of his personality. That kind of honesty is compelling, as is this collection. Read it. You'll see what I mean.
