Nina gained an A in English Literature A Level and took an Arvon creative writing course under the attentive watch of acclaimed authors Jake Arnott and Louise Welsh.


During her three years at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art she wrote monologues to perform at the final showcase to agents and casting directors.  

One of these monologues became the opening scene for How Are You? I'm Fine; a play she co-produced with fellow actors after graduating.  This led to the creation of the highly acclaimed Simple8 theatre company.

She has written two novels, several short stories and three plays.  She was highly commended in the 2018 Royal Marsden Short Story Competition.  

The Penguins' Planet is a colourful book for 7-9 year old readers and for younger children to enjoy listening to. 


Follow the adventures of Mrs Emperor and Ozzie, the Little Blue Penguin, as they tackle the world's oceans, discovering species of penguins they never knew existed, and an environment they realise they must fight to save.  


The Penguins' Planet will be available to read in 2021.
