trees, writing, more trees...

C.K. Nolan, author of The Mazer

Hi :) I'm C.K. Nolan - tree lover and author.

Here I am with some of my favorite books, including my growing collection of tree guides.

You can download my novel The Mazer for *free* from Smashwords!

Catch some of the atmosphere of the world of The Mazer in my video:

Out of the house, you'll often find me in the nearest park or garden, camera at the ready, snapping trees and their leaves before jotting down everything I've seen.

At home, I'm busy arranging my digital photo collection of trees, spending time on this site as well as my crochet site at, teaching English online, as well as enjoying being a student myself again! I completed a fantastic course all about the Illuminated Manuscripts of Western Europe and you can check out what I did in my section about How to Make a Codex.


I'm adding photos of many of the trees I've met on the site as well as tree walks around botanical gardens and other interesting places.

First up is the Botanical Gardens section of the site, where you can join me on walks around the gardens in Melbourne, Sydney and Kew. Lots more walks coming up!
