BioNathan writes fiction closely based on his own life experiences.
His novel ‘The Freeing of Jonathon Mark’ was a result of chasing the plastic happiness of consumerist dreams. It is also a study of how he opted out of these pursuits for a fresh start, to forge a new life where he can be free from empty conformity. ‘The Freeing of Jonathon Mark’ won an IPPY award for best fiction.
In his second novel, ‘My Daughter, my Assassin’, Nathan draws on the trials and tribulations of having being an at-home father for many years. The book is in some ways a self-examination of this period of his life.
His other published works include Ginger the Carrot, a picture book for adults, and the illustrated Japanese accordion style book, ‘The very real story of the very, very Old Dude’, enforcing his thinking that a book is also an object of art. He is also the director and scenarist for a number of award winning short films.
Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, Nathan now resides in the south-west of France, where he continues to write.

The Freeing of Jonathon Mark
Jonathon is a Taker, some type of modern day psych in the growing industry of modern grief. Takers treat people for all that ails them just by listening. In session, a Taker doesn’t speak. A Taker doesn’t move. A Taker doesn’t even blink. A Taker takes till their patients have got no more negativity to give.
A chance meeting throws a new patient into Jonathon’s life. A girl whose carefree lightness of being is in complete contrast to the average patient. She makes Jonathon realise he can no longer refuse to deal with how his job makes him sick, nor his own destructive vice.
Murder is his only way out, an action that leads him towards his own death and beyond. It is a path he hopes will lead him to his freedom.
The Freeing of Jonathon Mark is the winner of an IPPY award for best fiction
