About Me


Somewhat geeky father of a beautiful cat, but also…

Improviser, compere, tetrarch & graphic designer at MissImp: Improv Comedy Theatre Nottingham.

Creative mentor – using improv and writing to bring out the best in people.

Proofreader and master of ebook conversion.

Storyteller and occasional scribbler of words about beers, whisky, books, films, Lego, Transformers (and other things made of plastic).

Editorial team at ANGRY ROBOT, world publisher of SF, F and WTF?!

Nick Tyler lives quietly, domestically in Nottingham but emerges at night to weave words with aggressive whimsy. He can be found spinning violently comic pirate stories and other short weird fiction and poetry as Captain Pigheart. Interspersed amongst the ramblings may be articles on mental health, Lego, reviews of things and other stuff.

He can also be spotted bounding about on stage with MissImp, Nottingham’s improvised comedy group collecting laughs for being clever, quick-witted and grotesque. Funny and funny looking? Yes.
Book nut, cat lover and moustache waxer.
