Nathan Wilson was born in Michigan in 1990. His love affair with writing began at the age of seven when he read a short story by his sister. Afterward, he spent much of his childhood writing fantasy. 

During a three-year stint at the Lansing Community College newspaper The Lookout, he published his first novel. The Undying God was released in 2012 as a fantasy take on the perils of radical ideology.

Nathan's writing branched out in mystery and horror when he hammered out the Red Widow in 2013. Hailed by readers as fast-paced, engaging, edgy, and terrifying, it introduced forensic sleuth Vivian Xu and investigative journalist Camilla Vesely to the world. The Vivian Xu series twists and turns through an underworld of psychopaths and serial killers in its sequels Arsenic for the Soul, All Her Wounds, and Death Perfected. 

It is presumed that Nathan's childhood ambitions to become a homicide detective led to this series of novels. These days, he prefers to read about true crime and study criminal psychology.

When Nathan isn't writing, he enjoys classic horror films, listens to German heavy metal, and plays with his cat, Rory Kilronan Wilson. He is also known to disappear to Taiwan whenever the opportunity presents itself. The hiking trails are to die for.
