Nicholas Nigro, Freelance Writer and Author

In the new millennium, Nicholas shifted career gears entirely. An inveterate collector of too many things to count, he founded a small business on eBay. Putting his knowledge and passion for collecting on paper, Nicholas also authored The Everything Collectibles Book (Adams Media/F+W, 2002). His collectible interests ran the gamut from political buttons to celebrity autographs to baseball memorabilia.

After attaining that all-important initial writing credit in the popular Everything Book series, other opportunities presented themselves. The Everything Coaching and Mentoring Book (Adams Media/F+W, 2003) and The Everything Success Book with Joseph Nigro (Adams Media/F+W, 2004) completed Nicholas's trifecta in the series.

Born and raised in the Bronx, Nicholas Nigro grew up in a neighborhood called Kingsbridge, then an intriguing amalgam of urban grittiness and small town charm.

His electronic YA novel, Cream Sam Summer ​(Smashwords, 2013), revisits the old neighborhood in what were simpler times indeed--the colorful 1970s--before the Internet, iPhones, and social media consumed our every waking moments. 

Nicholas attended Manhattan College in the leafy Riverdale section of the Bronx. Majoring in economics, he graduated with a bachelor of science degree in Business Administration. He toiled soon after for an independent retail pet food and supplies chain by the name of Pet Nosh. His duties included the writing and editing of NoshNews, the company's customer newsletter. Co-authored with brother Joseph Nigro, Nicholas's subsequent book, 101 Best Businesses for Pet Lovers ​(Sphinx Legal/Sourcebooks, 2007), was inspired by his years on the frontlines of the dynamic pet care trade.

​Recent years have found Nicholas showcasing his capacity to assume diverse book projects. Simultaneous with the writing of 101 Best Businesses for Pet Lovers, he was asked to produce the second edition of The Coaching & Mentoring Book (Adams Media/F+W, 2008). 

That same year, Nicholas authored the quirky business self-help book, No Job? No Prob! (Skyhorse Publishing, 2008). It was both reviewed and recommended in the business section of the Sunday, November 16, 2008 New York Times​. Narrated by voice artist Scott Pollak, No Job? No Prob! is presently available as an audiobook as well. 

Nicholas reached for the stars quite literally with his next two projects: KNACK Night Sky (Globe Pequot, 2010) and Night Sky: A Falcon Field Guide ​(Globe Pequot, 2012). In 2014, he charted further new territory as editor of Backbeat Books/Hal Leonard's three-book "Spirituality" series: TheSpirituality of BonoThe Spirituality of Carlos Santana, and The Spirituality of Richard Gere.

​In 2015, Nicholas's "aspiring writer" dream of authoring a "TV book"--any old one--came to pass in a big way with the publication of Seinfeld FAQ (Applause Theatre & Cinema Books/Hal Leonard).

A change of course found him compiling "A Little Book of Wit, Wisdom, and Whimsy": Irish Curses, Blessings, and Toasts (Hampton Roads Publishing, 2018). The author's most recent credit: Night Sky: A Falcon Field Guide, 2nd Edition (Rowman & Littlefield, 2021).
