‘Nathan appeared on the Writers on the Edge podcast, episode 114: the The Three Sentence Review and episode 192: the Queerlings, where he discussed his series, shared the importance of chosen families, unveiled Canada as a setting, shared the magic of the three sentence review, writing YA for the first (terrifying) time and what it’s like to write short story collections.
If you’ve not listened to the WROTE Podcast, do check it out. They’re a great group, and tireless in their work to promote queer art and artists and all the intersections thereof.
A monthly podcast hosted by Matthew Bright, featuring LGBTQ writers and poets, plus music, and regular segment ‘Duelling Dandies,’ ‘Nathan appeared on the third episode of An Earful of Queer.
Discussion ranged from romance tropes that can get him a little bit twitchy, a game of ‘Who’s Line is it Anyway?’ and a loving discussion of the sense of family brought about in the queer publishing world. Definitely stay for the awesome ‘Coming Out’ song by Must Be Tuesday.
Discussion focused on diversity in speculative fiction and romance, as well as bridging the generational gap between queer youth and older queer adults, a healthy dose of shorter format love and the differences between short(er) fictions and novels, and what it’s like to shift between genres as a queer writer.
Sarah Jean and ‘Nathan discuss all manner of their favourite queer (and queer-inclusive) romance (and other genre) books, as well as working in the book industry, what Pride means to them, and general geeking out about lesbian capybara pirates and their trans boy chinchilla cabin boys. It was a lot of fun, even though it was recorded in the first May of Covid-19 quarantine.
