  About the author  

Nina M. Osier was born with a sun tan in the village of Camden, Maine. Her first home was on Friendship Long Island, off the Maine coast. She started "writing" at the age of two, when her parents decided to write down her stories and read them back to her.

She began reading science fiction at the age of 11, when a librarian in her home town of Gardiner, Maine introduced her to the works of Alan E. Nourse and Andre Norton. She started writing in the genre soon afterward.

Nina's favorite science fiction authors are Robert A. Heinlein and Anne McCaffrey. She's also fond of Alan Dean Foster's "Flinx" series, and during her high school teaching days borrowed its first book ("The Tar-Aiym Krang") from one of her 15-year-old students.

Nina directs the Division of Records Management Services at the Maine State Archives, where she gets some of her best ideas! She lives in a turn-of-the-century Victorian house in Augusta, Maine, where she writes, gardens, and wishes humans didn't have to waste time sleeping.
