Nathan Mercer lives quietly, tending to his inn and trying to leave his violent past behind him. But after the mysterious death of one of his employees, Nathan finds himself suspecting the fae, an ancient and powerful race he would rather avoid. Nathan’s choice is clear; dive back into a world that thinks he is dead, or let a murderer go free.

Since an early age he look both inward and outward using his imagination to add a bit of magic to the world. Over the years he has worked in many jobs from retail sales to customer service in the health industry but his one true passion has always been writing.

A book devourer he would read anything that had to do with Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Crime. Recently he took the plunge from reader to author and his debut novel Storm’s Child is the first book in the Rune Caster Chronicles Series. He currently lives in Puerto Rico with his super dog Noah and is working on the next book in the series.
