About the Author

While most kids wanted to be an astronaut or a firefighter when they grow up, Nathan wanted to be a writer. Ever since a young age, he has been captivated by stories and how they shape us. This passion for storytelling led him to pursue a screenwriting degree from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA), where he graduated in 2018. While there, he received the Henry Pollock Excellence in Filmmaking award twice in a row by demonstrating his commitment to crafting meaningful stories.

After graduating from UNCSA, Nathan has established himself as an emerging young writer. He released his first collection of poetry, Goodnight Youth: Poems, in 2019. He followed that with Nights at the Turntable: Jazz Poetry the next year. He has also written articles for numerous websites and journals.

He lives in Charlotte, NC, with his wife. He is currently pursuing his Master's degree in English at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
