Nico Reznick is a writer and spoken word performer of ambiguous immigrant extraction. Having spent her early life moving around various European countries as a ‘corporate army brat’, Nico now lives in Shakespeare country with her editor and two feline overlords.
She has appeared as a warm-up act for a number of established poets, and is a regular attendee and guest at local spoken word events.
Nico’s darkly comedic début novel, Anhedonia, and her first collection of poetry, Over Glassy Horizons, are both available on Amazon. Recently Nico Reznick released her second poetry collection Gulag 101 as well as a new Kindle novella titled The Other One.
Nico has served stints as a dead-eyed bureaucrat (until realising there’s only so much negative emotion you can bury in spreadsheets), as a purveyor of bad, smuggled wine (statute of limitations since expired) and as a political canvasser and campaign agent (she can tell you how a household will vote based solely on their front garden).
Besides writing, her interests include photographing rust, getting angry about politics and assembling Lego, which – she claims – centres her.
If you met Nico in life, you probably wouldn’t get on.
