Fast Break

Who is Nick O’Flannigan anyway?

A former college basketball star, a broken leg ended the six-foot-six red head’s desire for an NBA career. While at Boston College, majoring in accounting as his plan B, Nick fell in love with photography.

What started out as a hobby turned into a business.

When Nick wanted a change, he moved from his home in Boston where his parents still live to Seattle, and immediately worked his way into a lucrative freelance career. Then, an offer came along, one he couldn’t refuse.

It helps to have friends in the right places.

Nick’s friend recommended him for a dream assignment: a one-year driving tour of the country, visiting every single state capital to take photos. He’d have one week in every city, a per diem allowance and a good salary. 

He sublet his appartment to a software engineer, let his customers know what was happening, and set off for Olympia, Washington, having only a small idea of what lay ahead for him on the road.

We love Rediscovered Books!

“I’m enjoying the journey across the country with Nick and his camera, finding dead bodies and solving crimes. 50 Capitals. 50 Murders. 50 Months. I’ll be with Troy Lambert and Stuart Gustafson as they explore each state capital in this fun series of novella mysteries, each one the perfect size for an evening’s read” 

— Bruce DeLaney, co-owner of Rediscovered Books
