Short biography
Nate Kenyon grew up in a small town in Maine, an avid reader and writer from a very early age. He attended Trinity College in Connecticut, majoring in English and winning awards for playwriting and fiction. After graduation some of his short fiction found publication in literary and genre magazines such as Nude Beach, The Belletrist Review, Nocturnal Ecstasy and Terminal Frights.

Kenyon moved to the Boston area in 1995 and took a position working in the marketing and communications field. In 2005 he sold his first novel, Bloodstone, to Five Star Publishing (Thomson Gale). Bloodstone was published a year later to critical acclaim, named a Bram Stoker Award finalist in hardcover, winning the P&E Horror Novel of the Year, and becoming one of Five Star's all time bestselling titles. In 2007, mass-market paperback publisher Leisure Books signed him to a two-book contract for Bloodstone and his next novel, The Reach. Bloodstone was released from Leisure in May 2008, and The Reach hit shelves in December, receiving a starred review from Publishers Weekly and raves from Booklist, Pop Syndicate, Dark Scribe and many more. His third novel, The Bone Factory, will be released in July 2009.

Kenyon has a trade paperback science fiction novella, Prime, coming in summer 2009 from Apex Books. He has recently had stories published in Shroud Magazine, Permuted Press's Giant Creatures anthology, and Legends of the Mountain State 2, and has several others forthcoming. He still lives in the Boston area with his wife and three children, and is at work on his next novel. Visit him online at www.natekenyon.com.
