Nina's Author Bio
Gypsy at heart.
Bad boy addict.
USA Today Bestselling author who writes about alpha men & the women they love.
When she isn't creating with words, she loves to create with paint and paper. Often though, she can be found curled up with a good book and some chocolate. She love's Keith Urban, Maroon 5, Pink, Florida Georgia Line, Bon Jovi, Matchbox 20, Lady Antebellum and pretty much any singer/band that is country or rock.

Describe yourself in 3 words
Loyal, Creative, Messy.
If you could have written any book which book would it be and why?
Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach - I adore this book. It is not a novel but rather a year worth of passages to read and reflect upon. Positive and uplifting.
Who is your favourite of your own characters (either already written or still in your head) and why?
OK so Blade is my favourite. He is so deep and scarred and protective and loyal and hot... lol ;) but I have another one who has been in my head since before J... his name is Zane Stone and he is a very strong alpha male who will have his own book possibly next year sometime. He will fall hard for Madison's friend, Serena and I can't wait to write that explosive relationship!
Best book you have read so far this year, and your Favourite book of all time?
I haven't read a great deal this year but I did love Debt by Nina G Jones! And one of my all time favourite books is The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay.
Are there any other authors who inspire you?
I am inspired by so many amazing women I know - Jani Kay, Chelle Bliss, Lyra Parish, River Savage, Natalie Gayle, Max Henry just to name a few. These women are some of my closest friends and also some of the most positive and self empowering women I know. I love to see people smash their goals and achieve their dreams. I am also inspired by Kristen Ashley after listening to her journey earlier this year.
Favourite thing that's been said about one of your books?
A lot of readers contacted me after reading Revive and shared their personal stories about depression and anxiety and loss of a child. Their stories moved me to tears but the fact my book could touch them enough to reach out to me meant the world. For women to tell me my words helped them in some small way... I can't even describe how that touches me and what it means to me.
What does the next twelve months look like in your book world?
So we have the final three Storm MC books coming out - Sassy Christmas, Illusive and Command. Then we have some more dirty Havoc in Inevitable Havoc, and the second book in the Sydney Storm MC series, Nitro's Torment. Wow, so many bikers ;) I'm also quietly developing a romantic suspense stand alone that I am very excited about.
Who is your current book boyfriend and who is your all time, old faithful, go to book boyfriend?
I am hoping my next book boyfriend will be King from TM Frazier as I am starting it tomorrow! And my old faithful is Gideon *sigh*
If you were stuck on an island with just one paperback book, which book would it be?
Shit...so many to choose from! I think I would actually choose one of my own lol.. Slay.
What's your go to karaoke song?
LOL - I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor
You've opened up your wardrobe and your clothes aren't there, instead it's your dream world! You walk through, what's the first thing you see?
Ummm... Keith Urban ;)
Is there a particular genre, maybe outside your comfort zone that you would like to write?
Dark dark romance! Oh and Young Adult.
What's the best and worst advice you've ever received?
Best - do what you can with what you have where you are
Worst - I don't recall... generally though I don't listen to anyone else and make all my own mistakes.
What words do you love to use, and see in books, and what words do you hate to use / see?
I love fuck, baby, sweetheart and I hate the words moist, puckered, hole ;)
If you had one superpower, what would it be?
To take away suffering.
Most underrated author / book you've read?
Andrea Randall - In The Stillness
Who is your absolute favourite man candy?
Keith Urban - boring and repetitive I know, but he is it.
If you didn't write books, what would you be doing?
Working as a psychologist.
There is a massive awards ceremony for authors, both trad published and indie. It's a big shindig and everyone is there. In a room full of these incredible people, who is the author that makes you mush and you totally fangirl over them?
I am such a bad fangirl. I am the fangirl who stands back desperately wanting to go and say hello to the author and tell them how much I adore their books but I just stand back and admire them from afar lol. Tarryn Fisher would be the one. I love the way she weaves words.
What is your #BookZero? That one book you've read again and again, and you know you will re read it again?
I don't tend to read and re read... Motorcycle Man probably
Anything you would like to say?
LOL, lots of love for you!! <3
