I’m Nick Petrou, an Australian writer with a fricken lolly bag of experience. Mostly, I write short fiction, and scripts for YouTube videos, but I’ve also worked on interactive fiction, tabletop RPG adventures, and other nerdy stuff in the past.

Overall, I like the weird and dark. You can find some of my favourite works of fiction, movies, TV series, and video games under my photo below. That should help you get to know me.
