Born an only child to doting parents in Windsor, Ontario Canada, Nick Zegarac spent most of his childhood torn between a shy outward nature and deep rooted desire to be at the center of things. He soon discovered a creative niche and outlet for his talent in the arts - doing murals and display cabinets for his local high school and appearing in several benefit shows, winning a citation from the Windsor Star for 'Best Original Featured Funny' in 1985 and second prize at a Windsor Art Gallery contest for his abstract mural, both while still a teenager. Upon attending university he wrote a weekly entertainment and movie review column for the now defunct, 'Windsor Citizen' and also divided his spare time between penning a collection of short stories and editing and critiquing other fellow student's papers. After a year at Sheridan College in the Fine Arts/Animation program, Zegarac returned to his first love, writing and by the fall of 1995, the Poetry Institute of Canada had chosen one of his poems, 'Reflections on The Water' for inclusion in their anthology. The following year brought further acclaim, this time in the United States in 'Poet's Pen'. In the spring of 2001, Zegarac successfully penned three screenplays, two of which are currently under consideration in Hollywood. He also continued to be active on the literary scene, acting as part of the editing team responsible for Black Moss Press' upcoming release of a collection of poetry entitled, 'Totally Unused Hearts'. Currently Zegarac is aggressively campaigning for a publishing house and agent to share his interests in several literary projects, including two more screenplays, a collection of short stories and a book concerning the overview of Hollywood film making. He currently writes film reviews for Amazon and his work as a poet is featured on several internet-based literary sites.
