About Nina
  • Love dogs? Love to laugh? Meet Abra the Afghan hound, the bad girl of dog fiction. Check out all seven books in the rollicking Whiskey Mattimoe mystery series, including the newest, WHISKEY, LARGE, available in trade paperback & ebook.

    I've also published teen fiction: HOMEFREE and SENSITIVE. My books are translated into Spanish, French, and German.

    Laugh because you can. Love because you want to. Believe in better times to come even when you have no clear reason for doing so. Irrational joy may be the most rational skill we can cultivate.

    An author and playwright, I'm in the business of making things up.
