He contributed short stories and articles to ‘Fear’ and ‘Skeleton Crew’ magazines, and for the latter created the series of interviews ‘The Luggage in the Crypt’. This featured interviews with Neil Gaiman, Joe R. Lansdale and Clive Barker.
In 2012, after working in the IT industry for sixteen years, he returned to writing full time with the publication of his short story anthology, ‘What Monsters Do’.
The book was called “… a range of stories which will delight, disgust and terrify. An erudite, charming and brutal examination of relationships, obsession and ghastliness,…” by zombiehamster.com.
A ringing endorsement if ever there was one!

Now, Nicholas and a talented cast and crew are bringing an adaptation of two stories to the stage for three nights this October!
From the press release :
Hidden Basement Productions have teamed up with writer and actor Nicholas Vince to present psychological horror plays for this year’s London Horror Festival, at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden.
Nicholas, known for playing the Chatterer Cenobite in Clive Barker’s ‘Hellraiser’ film; has dramatized two stories from his collection, ‘What Monsters Do’, which is rated 5 stars on amazon.com. He is working closely with Hidden Basement Productions to bring them to the stage.
The show, ‘What Monsters Do’, consists of two 25 minute horror plays performed as a double bill. The stories, ‘Tunes from the Music Hall’ and ‘Green Eyes’ explore love, lust, obsession, the bond of family and the dark violence that lurks behind seemingly innocent people. Nicholas said, “The plays center on the theme : it is not our flesh, but our acts which make us monsters.”
Directing the plays will be Philip North, co-writer and director of ‘The Puppetry of Flesh’, which sold out at last year’s London Horror Festival. He said, ‘I’m thrilled that a horror icon like Nick has chosen to work with Hidden Basement to bring his dark stories to life. It’s great to have such rich source material for a project. I think the piece is really unique and a must see for all fans of horror. I’m looking forward to unleashing these two disturbing tales on London audiences.’
