Nathan was inspired to write A Strange New World by friends participating in NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month coordinated by The Office of Letters and Light, a non-profit organization. Nathan completed writing the novel during Camp NaNoWriMo in July 2013 after over a year of writing and planning. “I'm an avid reader and am always looking for something new and interesting to read,” says Nathan. “Being able to complete and publish my first novel is extremely exciting and I'm looking forward to completing the sequel and the series.”
Four novels are planned for The Great Game series; the sequel to A Strange New World is titled Alared Alejdeydh and will be released shortly. A Strange New World has been independently published by Nathan through Smashwords.com (https://www.smashwords.com/
