Nathan's writing is informed by a doctorate in Cognitive Psychology from the University at Buffalo, more than twenty years writing and storytelling in a variety of role-playing formats, and a lifelong fascination with mythology both historic and modern. His science fiction work is primarily set in the Empyrean Dreams universe created by co-writer Laine Lundquist, but also includes short stories, a 'hard' sci-fi novel and two science fantasy novels in progress. He also writes fantasy, weird horror, short essays, and 'new mythology', and presents retellings of classic mythology for public gatherings. Nathan is a practicing Pagan, skilled home cook, and gaming enthusiast (RP, board, video, logic, wordplay, etc.). He lives with his wife, Alicia, in Erie, Pennsylvania.
