William Nicholson is the author of the acclaimed Seeker and Jango, books one and two of the Noble Warriors trilogy; the Wind on Fire trilogy; as well as the screenplays for Gladiator and Shadowlands, both of which were nominated for Academy Awards. William Nicholson's first nomination came in 1989 with BAFTA TV Awards. 2000 turned out to be Nicholson's most impressive year to date, with acclaim for the Best Picture Oscar winner Gladiator.

He had nominations for the Sierra Award from the Las Vegas Film Critics Society Awards and the Saturn Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, followed by 'Best Screenplay' nominations from both BAFTA and Oscar. In 2007 Nicholson co-wrote the film Elizabeth: The Golden Age, from an earlier script by Michael Hirst.

In 2012, Nicholson adapted the beloved musical Les Miserables for the screen, and the film is already receiving buzz for its script, as well as other awards. His fantasy novel for older children, The Wind Singer, won the Smarties Prize Gold Award on publication in 2000, and the Blue Peter Book of the Year Award in 2001. Its sequel, Slaves of the Mastery , was published in 2001, and the final volume in the trilogy, Firesong, in 2002. The trilogy has been sold in every major foreign market, from the US to China. His second sequence of fantasy novels is called The Noble Warriors trilogy consisting: Seeker(2005), Jango (2006) and the third book Noman (2007).

Firesong is the final volume of the award-winning Wind on Fire trilogy.

"In the time of cruelty, The Manth people have left the ruined Mastery to seek their homeland, in the face of starvation, blizzards and the evil of the Morah. Only Ira Hath can lead them there, but she is growing weak... Kestrel dreads reaching the homeland. She is afraid of what it will mean for her mother--and of something else. Why does she feel so alone? Bowman eagerly awaits the summons from Sirene. He prepares to make the final sacrifice for his people. But first he must be trained by the great Albard. And all the while, the wind is rising..."

‘The first two volumes of the trilogy marked the arrival of a striking new voice in children’s writing… the warmth of feeling and touches of comedy make the trilogy a triumph.’ - Times

‘The novel has the powerful imaginative energy and emotional force that are a hallmark of Nicholson’ screenplays.’ - Sunday Times

‘Nicholson has won a devoted audience with his seeker fiction. His books are bestsellers…they are marketed as children’s books but are fast developing a following among adults too. Nicholson offers the potent combination of a gripping narrative and a questing intelligence…’ - Daily Telegraph

‘Nicholson’s achievement is worthy of acclaim and should mellow into a classic.’ - Times
