Hi, I’m Nina. After years in Portland, Oregon interviewing rockers-turned-authors and reviewing feminist texts, I moved east to get a Creative Writing MFA at Rutgers. Now living in Brooklyn, I’m at work on a memoir about self-immolation set in rural Northern California, a cheerful ditty one esteemed professor called “a redneck Twin Peaks.”
My work has been published or is forthcoming in Brooklyn Magazine, Flaunt, GOOD, Bitch, Curve, and The Oregonian. Current day jobs include writing about the science of women’s sexual pleasure for OMGYes and teaching creative writing to second graders. Additionally, I work with authors and small businesses to refine and edit their narratives via books, websites, and marketing materials. Hire me for editorial work, writing with panache, and existential consultations.
