Nat Cassidy writes horror for the page, stage, and screen. His critically-acclaimed, award-winning horror plays have been produced across the United States, as well as Off- and Off-Off-Broadway. He won the NY Innovative Theatre Award for his one-man show about H. P. Lovecraft and was commissioned by the Kennedy Center to write the libretto for a short opera (about the end of the world, natch). An established actor on stage and television (usually playing monsters and villains on shows such as Blue Bloods, Bull, Quantico, FBI, Law & Order: SVU), Nat also authored the novelization of the hit podcast Steal the Stars, which was published by Tor Books and named one of the best books of 2017 by NPR. His horror novel debut, titled Mary: An Awakening of Terror, will be published by Tor Nightfire on July 19, 2022, with a second original horror novel on the way in 2023. He lives in New York City with his wife.
