A fictional character played by Firefly’s Nathan Fillion, Richard Castle is the pseudonym used by the authors of tie-in novels to the hit TV series, Castle. He ‘lives’ in Manhattan and ‘published’ his first novel while at college. The ‘writer’ of the popular Derrick Storm and Nikki Heat novels, both series that have gone on to be New York Times bestsellers, the Richard Castle books are full of mystery and excitement.
In the show, Richard Castle is not only an acclaimed crime writer but also an amateur detective and private investigator. Nathan Fillion not only appears in character at book events but is also featured in the photo for the books’ author biographies.
