About the Author

I live in beautiful Queensland in Australia. I started writing in 2009 because I wanted to do something creative and haven't stopped since! I have two series of books:

The Heller series (first book Heller - free!) features the frequently outlandish adventures of security officer, Tilly Chalmers, and her complicated relationship with her beautiful, mysterious and intense boss, Heller. There will be seven books in total in this series.

The Little Town series (first book Blood Ties - free!) features police officer, Tess Fuller, and her struggle to survive a long-standing vendetta with the feral Bycraft family and at the same time manage the tense relationship between her new partner, Finn Maguire, and her boyfriend, Jake Bycraft. There will be five books in total in this series.

My author dream is to one day write a short story (which for me will probably be about 50,000 words!) where Tilly & Heller meet Tess & Finn. What a story that would be! Maybe over the end-of-year break???

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them! I'd love to hear your feedback, so why not email me at: jdn.author@gmail.com

Being someone that searches through the many free books available for the Nook, I have stopped expecting much from them. Here I was pleasantly surprised with how good this book was. I was pulled in right from the beginning and ended up finishing this book in a few days just because I couldn't make myself put it down. The plot was original and well written. I would recommend this book to all of you out there that keep getting bought down by all those free books and are on the verge of giving up on them. This one will renew your faith that there are some books out there worth looking for.

I read the book Blood Ties first and enjoyed it so much that I looked to see what other books this author had available. I am waiting on pins and needles for the sequels in both series! I generally have a hard time reading romances with "tough" women. Not that I like weak or flaky heroines more because I love having strong lead males taking care of likable women. The author was able to make her characters stand out and be not only physically strong but emotionally also. The men are completely strong yet loving = yummy! JD Nixon -I need those sequels so please, please continue writing!

If you love Stephanie Plum then you will absolutely love Heller & Matilda (Tilly)! This series had me laughing, crying, and gripping my nook from tension! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

In my experience people usually get what they pay for. Although I have found some very enjoyable cheap and free books, I try not to set my expectations too high. Many free books I have grabbed have been filled with so manyt x% b n grammatical and spelling errors that it distracts immensly from the story, and often the stories and character developments are not very impressive, but I do continue to support new authors. I could not have been more surprised by this book!!!!!!! It is amazingly well written and edited, creative, funny and thrilling at the same time. I cannot sing my praises loudly enough for this author and this book, and I cannot wait to read the rest!!!!!

This was a great intro to a new series. Much lighter than the Blood Ties series (which was awesome too). The heroine in this story is funny, goofy, kicks butt, and did I say goofy? The hottie is Viking worthy. After reading this you'll never think of fruit the same way again! I read it in one night laughing all the way.

JD Nixon has a style of writing that just captivates you and keeps you reading. Her characters are complex, yet tough, witty, funny and keep you wanting more. Everytime you think you know what is going to happen, there is a new twist. Everytime you think "I will just finish this chapter, then I can go to sleep" there is something that keeps you going. Tons of humor, lots of Oz slang that will keep most Americans scratching their heads (until they figure it our...lol) and a plot that just keeps delivering. This book and its sequels are a must read. Just not when you have to go to work the next day!!!

Tired of the same 'ol same 'ol? Have your books become repetitious, predictale and BORING?? Then I strongly suggest you read All the Heller books currently available, and you will probably read them as I did, one right after the other. You will not be disappointed. Where has this author been? Whay hasn't a major publisher discovered her? What she's writing beats the pants off the so called popular authors of our time. So glad I found her. WELL WORTH EVERY SECOND OF READING. Thank you JD for Tilly, Heller, Niq and the lovely Daniel....so happy to get to know them

It was different from any other book/situation I've read about. Go the follow ups after reading this and am awaiting the new one due out in March 2012. I little too much sex - but I can deal with that.

JD Nixon draws us in quickly and doesn't let go with Tillie's character, humor, devotion to friends & family. Good for anyone who's ever changed career fields or been in over her head. I have read Heller's Revenge & Heller's Girlfriend. Book 4 in process now. I also read JD Nixon's Little Town Series- the first "Blood Ties" also free. Unlike some series, there is personal & professional growth, fresh situations. Visit JD's blog and website for Aussie glossary and trivia on both her series. Will read anything she writes for the foreseeable future. Also try Shelly Fredman "No Such Thing As a Secret" and sequels now on Nook.

For a free book this was really good and had very original characters, plots and settings. Its a combination of rommance, mystery, and suspense. WARNING: FOR MATURE AUDIENCES YOUNG ADLUTS OR ADLUTS

I was totally surprised with this book. I was not expecting it to be this good. It was free and captivating, plus it is 700 plus pages long. Trust me, I was never bored. Besides being suspenseful, the main character has a sense oh humor. Kudos to this author. For the prudes, this is not for you.

I have never gone through 700+ pages so quickly. The story was a bit slow for the first 100 then as soon as she met Heller i was HOOKED! Great book. Just bought 2nd in the series and am very excited to get reading :)

This is a good book because it goes deep in to matilda (tilly) chalmers mind. This book is written in first person. I love first person books. The author is austrailian so some of the word she uses are not american so some words some peeps wont understand words. But also the book can be weird.

Most enjoyable read I've had in years! At first I thought 'really? 732 pages...we'll see'. I did NOT want this story to end....thankfully it hasn't. Yet. Great characters, very funny and some really delicious sexual tension.

JD Nixon is my favorite author because of the Heller series. I love Tilly and Heller. You will laugh out loud at the things Tilly gets herself into. And you will go crazy with the suspense of the relationship between Tilly and Heller. I would give this book a ten if I could!
