John Nicholson interview: Inside the mind of a writer

In the NEW episode, number 1395, Kyle Fansler revisits a chat with writer John Nicholson as part of the ‘Show ‘n’ Tell’ series from World Soccer Talk.

John Nicholson is a critically acclaimed author, notable for his books We ate all the pies and Can we have our football back?, among others. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg into what Nicholson does on a daily basis.

Non-fiction soccer writing for his books as well as Football 365 takes up a solid portion of time, as do his ventures into Rock ‘n’ Roll, T-shirt sales and fiction writing. While talking with Kyle Fansler, Nicholson breaks down what he does:

  • How he got into the writing industry
  • Supporting Middlesbrough and some of his favorite memories
  • Organizing and releasing T-shirts for sale
  • Expanding on his passion for Rock ‘n’ Roll with Rock Candy Magazine
  • His writing with Football 365 and his knowledge of the beautiful game
  • Applying his trade to fiction works, not just non-fiction soccer writing.

Those interested in following John Nicholson can follow him on Twitter or find his published works on his website.
