About The Authors

Let's Get Acquainted

Arthur Cole.

Arthur is a retired Detective Sergeant, having dealt with all serious crime during his Police career, whilst serving with the South Wales Police.

He is married with two grown up children, his son, Christopher is a serving police officer and his daughter, Karen is a design director living and working in Singapore.
Arthur enjoys all sports and loves writing poetry mainly focussing on Coal Mining and The First World War.
UNETHICAL CONDUCT was his first attempt at writing a novel involving police investigation - without pulling any punches.

He decided, from the outset to use known locations in the force area for readers to identify with the cities, towns and villages.  It was only intended to be a one-off tale, a book to satisfy an urge.
He never meant for the book to be published, it was a bucket list wish, however, he was encouraged to publish by his good friend and now co author Nigel Williams.

After UNETHICAL CONDUCT was published, Nigel and Arthur began writing together and have just finished the 8th book in the Terry McGuire Series “Betrayal.”

The authors are pleased to inform all the readers who have supported them, and purchased the books, that The Marie Curie Cancer Trust has received a cheque in the sum of £1,000 and the Garnwen Trust recently received a cheque for £460 from the Royalties of “Night Hawker.”

In July this year, Arthur signed a publishing contract with "WORDCATCHER PUBLISHING" for his poetry books on Coal Mining and the First World War. The first book "AN INDUSTRY NOW LOST-The Pride, Passion and Pain of Mining" is available as an E-Book from the 31st July and can be ordered via the link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07FNSBQX8. The hard back copy will be available from September 2018. The second book will be launched to mark the centenary of the cessation of the First World War.
Both books contain 50 poems.

Nigel Williams

Writing as N Williams and N C Williams, Nigel Williams was born in November of 1960 in Abercrave in the Swansea Valley, South Wales.
In 1981, he joined the Metropolitan Police and was posted to Brixton.
In 1984, Nigel transferred to South Wales Police and worked for the rest of his fourteen years service as a traffic officer and an armed V.I.P and Special Escort Group driver, involved in many of the Royal visits to the Principality. His police service was cut short in 1994 when he was hit by a stolen car and fractured his spine. He was forced to retire but was awarded seven commendations during his service with the Welsh force.
During his recovery, he returned to education and achieved a first-class honours degree in fine art. This was followed by a teaching qualification at Cardiff University and a Master's degree in fine art.
His first full length novel "Eden Relics" (2012) reached number 8 in the Action and Adventure books on Amazon. He has also written "Welsh Gold" (2012) as N.C. Williams and a dark comedy thriller called "Fake Baked." (2013)
He has also co-written "No Step Back" (2015) with Alan Lloyd MBE and "Unethical Conduct" (2016) with Arthur Cole. He has also written two sequels to "No Step Back," using the Frank Dix character in "A Hard Place"(2015) and "A Cold Place" (2015)
Nigel keeps himself busy by watching rugby, reading, writing, painting and learning to fly.
He is married to the very patient Caroline and has three children; Adam, Lara and Ciara, and a dog named Zac.
