Nathan Marchand

Biography

Meet your resident author, world-builder, and available bachelor.

Nathan Marchand (you can call him “Nate”) is a young aspiring writer from northeastern Indiana. Born June 29, 1983, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, he was homeschooled starting in first grade. He discovered his talent for writing in sixth grade English. He was given the assignment to write a “fanciful story,” so he crafted one about his toys coming to life and fighting each other. He enjoyed it so much, he wrote many sequels (he still has them all…somewhere). He eventually expanded into writing other stories and genres. He has wanted to write science fiction since his dad introduced him to the original “Star Trek” at age three.

He attended Taylor University Fort Wayne from 2002-2006, earning a B.A. in professional writing. He was taught by Dr. Dennis E. Hensley (better known as “Sir” or “Sarge”), one of the premiere writing instructors in the country. While there, he wrote for The Express, the school newspaper, and Calliope, the literary magazine, and authored various freelance articles.

He worked as a reporter for the Bluffton News-Banner in Bluffton, Indiana, from 2007-2008. He now writes as the Narnia Examiner for www.examiner.com, and as a freelance writer.

Nathan believes Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). His stories, he hopes, communicate this at least implicitly.

His first novel, Pandora’s Box, was published in 2010 by Absolute XPress.

His literary influences include C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Heinlein, and Orson Scott Card. His favorite books are The Lord of the Rings, C.S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy, The Chronicles of Narnia, Starship Troopers, and Ender’s Game.

When not writing, he enjoys other creative endeavors like photography, acting, and amateur filmmaking. He has been described as “a man with a pen and the heart to back it up.”
