Born and raised in a low-income Baltimore home to a single mother of two boys, he never stopped dreaming of success. At an early age, he told his mother that one day he’d become a successful writer and help other people achieve their dreams. That journey wasn’t an easy one. He was met with opposition that included financial problems, being told by his freshman English professor that he’d never become a writer, depression, jail, and many of life’s other unfortunate experiences.

But C. Nathaniel Brown never let any obstacle stand in his way. And that’s the message he shares every opportunity he gets.

After graduating Dunbar High School in Baltimore, he went on to pursue his undergraduate studies at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, where he earned a degree in Black Studies with a writing emphasis. He then became a journalism fellow at Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, where he honed his craft as a reporter. He went on to spend the next 20 as a journalist working as a writer, editor, publisher, and photographer with publications in Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and various online publications across the country. He also founded and published Glad Tidings, a Christian lifestyle magazine.

As a writer, C. Nathaniel Brown’s works have appeared in such publications as USA Today, The New York Times, and The Atlanta Journal Constitution. He has published eight books, including his most recent, Shift Happens Then You Live along with The 30-Day Prayer Companion.
