Nathan Wilson spent much of his childhood writing fantasy after reading a short story by his sister. Almost fifteen years later, he would go on to publish his first novel, The Undying God.

Nathan's writing branched out in mystery and horror when he hammered out 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 crime in its sequels Arsenic for the Soul, All Her Wounds, and Death Perfected.

Nathan returned to his fantasy roots with Obsidian Wraith in 2021. His wife, an avid fantasy writer and reader, collaborated with the story and characters.

Awesome, I'm looking forward to reading the third one! I especially like epic fantasy, too. I'm sorry to hear about your break up. :( I'm glad your writing is coming back, though. Red Widow kind of drained me so I took a little break from writing, but now I'm alternating between a sequel to Red Widow and a sci-fi novel. I'm also thinking about doing a spin-off novel of The Undying God featuring Hrioshango as the main character, but I'm not sure yet.

I am halfway through the third. I had a huge block on my writing due to a badish break up with my fiancé. Was scared I wouldn't write again! but its all coming back now. Still working on my epic fantasy too. What are you working on now?

Hi, Vickey, I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of Red Widow! :) It's quite a bit different than The Undying God. I tried to delve more into the horror/psychological aspects of it. How are you coming along with the third installment of Twin Souls?


Victoria Limbert Planning on buying and reading Red Widow next weekend :) So excited


Victoria Limbert Is Red Widow ready? Xx

Lol, the funny thing is a lot of people tell me I look older than I really am. At least spring break is coming up soon so I'll definitely have more time to read and write. I'm already looking forward to the next Twin Souls novel even though I'm only halfway through Lilith lol. :)


Victoria Limbert I cant't believe how much older than you I am lol! still have the mind of an 18yr old tho :p yeah it sucks when real life gets in the way of inspiration/writing. Thank you btw. Hope you enjoy the whole thing. :)


Nathan Wilson Victoria wrote: "I am loving the Undying God, hopefully will have it finished by tomorrow :) yay"

Awesome, thank you very much, Victoria! :) I really enjoy Lilith, and the way you write inspires me. Sorry it's taken me so long to get through it, work and school keeps calling me away lol. I haven't even had time to write anymore.
