Extended bio:
Nathaniel Kressen is the author of two novels — Dahlia Cassandra (released June 2016) and Concrete Fever (Bestseller, Strand Book Store) — as well as the co-founder of Second Skin Books and the leader of the Greenpoint Writers Group.

Nathaniel lives and works in Brooklyn. In addition to his work with the GWG, he curates The Loaded Canon at Brooklyn Oenology which combines raw unpublished work with high-end wine & cocktail pairings. His writing has been published by some of the most well-respected indie presses, though he has a penchant for going the DIY route when traditional paths take too long.

Upon finishing his first novel, he taught himself how to bind books and went on to print, stitch, and sell nearly 250 copies through local stores. With those earnings he published the first paperback edition of Concrete Fever – now in its second printing. Though the pin pricks on his fingers have healed, he remains committed to creating physical art objects out of literary fiction.

His work for the stage has been published and produced in NYC, DC, LA, and regionally. As a screenwriter he won First Place in The Relevance Group’s American Details Competition. He is a proud alumnus of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he studied performance at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute.

His better half is the visual artist Jessie T. Kressen. They camp and travel and mix cocktails for friends. They have a horde of furry children together as well as an epic backyard garden.
