About the Artist

Boarder headshotNicholas Stirling is descended from alcoholic Finns and pig-rearing Scotsmen.  He has tried his hand at more than a few things: custom woodworking, bookstore management, and teaching to name a few of them.  He is happily married to his high school sweetheart, and lives in Ancaster, Ontario (that’s in Canada, in case you were wondering).

He has an Academia certificate (don’t ask) and an Honours English degree from the University of Guelph, and a Bachelor of Education from Nipissing University.  He is also an Ontario Certified Teacher, which apparently allows him to put “OCT” at the end of his letters, along with ADD and OCD.

Nicholas received his 1st Degree Black Belt in Chon Ji Kickboxing and MMA from Mr. Dennis Alvey (ITF Taekwon-do 6th degree black belt) in April of 2009, and has previously trained in Boxing and Taiken Jiujitsu.

He owns a longboard, a fact that has resulted in several large scars and a fair degree of mockery.  He supplements this dangerous activity with some light mountain biking, guitar playing, sketching, really bad painting, and more reading than is healthy for an adult.

He is currently writing and promoting his first real stab at a readable novel, entitled Emily Rose.
