Nate Covell was employed by the White House Military Office, worked in cyber counterintelligence, was a Japanese interpreter and lived in Japan and Italy. He has a B.A. in Creative Writing and has done graduate work at Harvard. He likes to talk about himself in 3rd person, as evinced here.
He is a new writer, but is effervescent and exuberant … a tingling, soft drink-like experience with which to work. ;)
