Author Lyle Nicholson was born in British Columbia, Canada in 1952. He was the youngest of three sons born to a father who was a cook, and a mother who was a waitress.
His father, who died when Lyle was only 15, was a story teller and avid reader, something that Lyle adopted at an early age and never forgot. His life would lead him to travels around Europe, then five years in a Monastery. He left the Monastery in 1979, and met and married his wife in 1982.
He established a successful sales agency in Canada, and retired from it in 2010. His longing for story telling was rekindled when he realized he no longer wanted to the hit the road for sales, but surf the regions of his mind for stories.
Lyle’s first novella, DOLPHIN DREAMS, available in paperback and eBook (Kindle, Smashwords, Kobo), is a culmination of his love of storytelling, and his fascination with the metaphysical. That which lies just behind the curtain, which we cannot see with the human eye, is his main genre for writing, as well as the bizarre and inexpiable. Read the first two chapters of DOLPHIN DREAMS.
