Join me in exploring afterlife possibilities

I am Nicholas McGirr, a.k.a. Nick Knight. I, like you, am fascinated with the great unknown question of what lies beyond the grave. Join me in exploring all the possibilities of what only our ancestors know where the truth lies.

I hold a BA in English, another BA in Journalism, and currently working on my MFA in Creative Writing. Along with my seven published titles, I have been a music critic, ghostwriter, musician, and a vinyl record collector.
