Nina Osier

Augusta, Maine, United States


Home page:

"9-UH" 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. A librarian in the central Maine town of Gardiner, where the family lived during Nina’s school years, introduced her at age 11 to the novels of Andre Norton, Madeleine L’Engle, and Alan E. Nourse — after which science fiction became her genre of choice.

Nina’s first novel, "Exile’s End," was published in 1997 by Electra-Light Books of London, Ontario. She graduated from New Hampshire College, and has worked as a high school teacher and as an accountant. She now directs the Division of Records Management Services at the Maine State Archives, where she gets some of her best ideas! She lives on a country road in Sidney, Maine, where she writes, gardens, and wishes humans didn’t have to waste time sleeping.
