Nina left Leicestershire for London as a teenager and after two years as a nanny she studied Humanities at Thames Polytechnic.
After graduating in 1987, she worked for a while in a Camden frock shop.
In 1990 she began a career in book publishing, working in various departments before becoming a commissioning editor at Routledge.
In 2002 she moved to Cornwall with her partner and children where she now writes, swims and makes bread.
