Nathaniel Kaine, the youngest of five children, was born on the east coast and spent his formative years in a small Midwestern town in northwest Indiana. As the youngest of five children, his siblings much older, he developed a penchant for crafting and writing tales as a way to entertain people. He shed his Midwestern roots for a more adventurous life in the U.S. Navy, where he had a broad array of experiences in the submarine service, surface naval units, and Foreign Service, specializing in electronics and communications. His time in the service allowed him to travel extensively, both in the United States and abroad, working in and visiting over 40 countries, experiencing and embracing many cultures. He spent a majority of his time, living and travelling throughout Central and South America, where he became fluent in Spanish while working with foreign military units on an advisory and training basis.
Nathaniel has worked in the Financial Services Industry, and currently works in Information Technology having held a number of different positions in both, constantly seeking the challenging aspects of his fields. Nathaniel’s avid love of the outdoors and adventure has led him on many interesting journeys, through the Andes in South America, the Amazon, diving in many of the world’s oceans, spending time on safari in Kenya, visiting the outback in Australia, constantly looking for ways to explore.
Nathaniel and his wife, Meghan, have two young children, with whom they spend most of their waking hours. He also has three older children from a previous marriage to Kathleen, who passed away from cancer at an early age. Nathaniel takes much of his creative inspiration from classical authors such as Robert Louis Stevenson, James Fenimore Cooper and Herman Melville, and modern day authors such as Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Lee Childs, John Grisham, and Clive Cussler.
