Nicholas Sansbury Smith is the bestselling author of the Orbs and Extinction Cycle series. He worked for the State of Iowa for ten years before switching careers to focus on his one true passion—writing. That move paid off, with his post-apocalyptic/medical thriller Extinction Horizon climbing to #8 on the overall Kindle charts and #1 at Audible. A three-time kindle-all star, Smith has sold 200k books, and several of his titles have reached the top 50 on the overall Kindle bestseller list.

As a hybrid author, Smith enjoys the best of both traditional and indie publishing, and he now spends his days working on his next pulse-pounding novel. When he isn’t daydreaming about the end of the world, he’s keeping fit—and practicing for outrunning zombies—by racing in triathlons. Nicholas is looking to complete his third Ironman Triathlon in 2016. He lives in Des Moines, Iowa, with his dog and a house full of books.
