Nate Crowley lives in Walsall, near the big IKEA, with his partner Ashleigh and a cat he insists on calling Turkey Boy. His writing career began on twitter where, as @frogcroakley, he authored Daniel Barker’s Birthday, a dystopian space opera in 700 installments. Nate has written The 100 Best Video Games (That Never Existed), a fictional history of gaming, with art from games studio Rebellion Developments, and is working on a new novel. He is also writing a text adventure game about a haunted sales training manual called Big Mike Lunchtime’s Business Training ’95, and the second series of animated show Realms of Fightinge. Nate loves contemplating unusual animals, cooking stews, playing complicated games and being in wild places. He is represented by Jamie Cowen at the Ampersand agency.
