Nigel Jay Cooper

Nigel Jay Cooper

Writer and author, born in London, England. He now lives in Brighton with his partner, their two children and greying ginger dog. Nigel's second novel The Pursuit of Ordinary was a finalist for The People's Book Prize for Fiction and was long listed for The Guardian's Not The Booker Prize.

Nigel's debut novel Beat The Rain was a semi-finalist in the Best Debut Author category of the Goodreads Choice Awards 2016. He's currently working on his third novel.

Nigel previously worked as a writer and editor for Channel 4 Television and co-founded employee comms platform, Qubist. He's a sometime marathon runner and occasional actor and singer. He worries about his weight all the time and his widow’s peaks are getting more pronounced, so baldness is probably beckoning him with its spiteful, spindly fingers.
