Nick Redfern
Nicholas "Nick" Redfern was born in 1964 in Pelsall, Walsall, Staffordshire. He's a British best-selling author, Ufologist and Cryptozoologist now living in Dallas, Texas, U.S.

Redfern is an active advocate of official disclosure, and has worked to uncover thousands of pages of previously-classified Royal Air Force, Air Ministry and Ministry of Defence files on UFOs dating from the Second World War from the Public Record Office and currently works as a feature writer and contributing editor for Phenomena magazine.


Redfern attended Pelsall Comprehensive School in Pelsall from 1976 to 1981. He also worked at Dixons paint suppliers with another ufologist, Martin Lenton.

Nick's interest in UFOs dates back to the late 1970s and stems from an incident that his father was involved in while serving on radar with the Royal Air Force in the 1950s. After leaving school in 1981, Nick joined a rock music and fashion magazine, Zero, and was trained in many areas of journalism, writing, magazine production and photography. He began writing on the UFO subject in a feelance capacity in the mid-1980s.

From 1984 until 2001, he worked as a freelance feature writer for the Daily Express, People, Western Daily Press and Express & Star newspapers, as well as a full-time feature writer for Planet on Sunday. Between 1996 and 2001, he worked as a freelance journalist for the following newsstand magazines in Britain: The Weekender, Animals, Animals, Animals, Pet Reptile, Military Illustrated, Eye-Spy, The Unopened Files and The X-Factor.

Between 1996 and 2000, Redfern signed a three-book publishing deal with Simon & Schuster of London for the publication of A Covert Agenda: The British Government’s UFO Top Secrets Exposed (1997), The FBI Files: The FBI’s UFO Top Secrets Exposed (1998) and Cosmic Crashes: The Incredible Story of the UFOs That Fell to Earth (2000). These books were serialized in the British Sunday newspaper, The People, and published in Canada, Russia, Poland, Australia, New Zealand and Portugal.

In 2003, Paraview-Pocket Books New York published Nick Redfern’s book Strange Secrets: Real Government Files on the Unknown in May of that year. And, in March 2004, Paraview-Pocket Books, New York, published his book Three Men Seeking Monsters: Six Weeks in Pursuit of Werewolves, Lake Monsters, Giant Cats, Ghostly Devil Dogs, and Ape-Men. This book tells the story of his relationship with Jonathan Downes and Richard Freeman of the Centre for Fortean Zoology, and has been optioned by Universal Studios. Redfern has run the U.S branch of the CFZ since 2002.

Nick Redfern writes a monthly column on UFOs for the website Destination Space. He also co-writes a bi-weekly column for the website UFO City. In addition, Nick has a monthly, 3-hour link-up with the Jeff Rense Sightings radio show in the U.S.A. to discuss the latest UFO news from the U.K.

Redfern has appeared on a variety of television programmes in the U.K., including The Big Breakfast, Channel 5 News, and GMTV. He is in constant demand on the lecture circuit, both in the UK and overseas, and has appeared in internationally syndicated shows discussing the UFO phenomenon. He also appeared on a show in the 3rd season of Penn & Teller: Bullshit! entitled "Ghost Busters". He is also a regular on the History Channel programs Monster Quest and UFO Hunters as well as National Geographic Channel's Paranormal and the SyFY channel's Proof Positive.

In 2007, Universal Studios bought the rights to Redfern's book: Three Men Seeking Monsters: Six Weeks in Pursuit of Werewolves, Lake Monster, Giant Cats, Ghostly Devil Dogs and Ape-Men in the hopes of making a movie from it.
