Nathan Holic is a (writer/ teacher/ editor/ astronaut/ elephant) who lives in the perpetually (humid/ mouse-infested/ snowy) city of (Orlando, FL/ Saskatoon, SK/ Empire Falls, NY). He teaches (writing/ dancing/ hamburger-eating) courses at (the University of Central Florida/ Midvale School for the Gifted/ Moo University/ DuPont University), and his students are generally (challenged/ disappointed/ enraged/ titillated) by his teaching style and assignments.
His work has seen publication in (The Portland Review/ Iron Horse Literary Review/ his own blog/ Facebook/ The Apalachee Review/ the comment boards for his local newspaper/ the walls of the third-floor bathroom of Colbourn Hall/ seriously, I can keep listing publications all day…that’s the cool thing to do, right? you’re still reading the list, right?).
Though Nathan Holic reads a great deal, he still has a list of books about which he remains guilty for never having read. These books include: (The Catcher in the Rye/ The Sound and the Fury/ A Tale of Two Cities/ Blood Meridian/ the French translation of I Just Want My Pants Back/ How to Operate Your John Deere Lawnmower/ The Writer’s Market).
One interesting thing about Nathan is that (he has a beautiful wife and a child on the way/ he’s been to Uranium City/ he has a Zombie Apocalypse bomb shelter in his back yard/ he knows where you live…yes…you, the one whose smile is fading ever-so-slightly as you read this).
