Hello. You have reached the blog of Nat Weinham. Please leave a message after the tone.

You may be interested to know that I was born in San Diego, California, in 1971 and graduated high school in Anchorage, Alaska, in 1989. What happened between remains a mystery. I’ve got top people looking into it. On the first sunny day of 1997 in Portland I married the woman of my dreams. For the next few years I worked odd jobs at bars and in the tech sector until the bubble burst, then I returned to school for an English BA from Portland State University followed by an MFA in Creative Writing.

In August 2011 I began this blog to document the creation of my MFA thesis project, a short novel titled THE FANTASTIC MACHINE. I turned the novel over to my committee at Portland State in early November and received excellent and inspiring feedback at my thesis defense. I’m now working on a round of revisions to the thesis novel before pitching it to an agent.
