Nina M. Osier
Nina M. Osier (pronounced "9-UH") was born with a sun tan in Camden, Maine, toward the end of the post-World War II baby boom. Her parents, a commercial fisherman and a reading teacher, taught her to love books, the English language, and the Maine coast.
After graduating from New Hampshire College (now Southern New Hampshire University) and working for several years as a high school teacher, accountant, theology student, and business manager, Nina found her niche preserving future history as Director of Records Management Services at the Maine State Archives. She especially enjoys using ideas suggested by her "day job" while writing her science fiction tales, and loves to explain that day job's purpose with these words: "I make sure everything that should be in the Starship Enterprise's library computer will survive long enough to get there."
Nina's first novel, Exile's End, was published by eBook pioneer Electra-Light Books in 1997. Her subsequent publications include biography, historical romance, literary fiction, nonfiction, and (of course!) more speculative fiction. She lives on a country road in Sidney, Maine, where she writes, gardens, and wishes humans didn't have to waste time sleeping.
