Writer Bio

Nina Niskanen is a software engineer, writer and blogger from the beautiful Helsinki, Finland. She is way too excitable about science, space exploration, Disney, and mythology. Consequently she likes to write science fiction and fantasy in which women do awesome things, often in space or Finland.

Writing Style

I like my happy endings although sometimes I have a pretty twisted view of just what constitutes a happy ending. Otherwise I'm pretty much all over the place.

Writing Goal

I'm going to be working on an outline for my next novel and a new short story/novelette, with a possibility of also editing previous short stories while I distract myself from not working on the novel I need to finish by June 28.

Fundraising Goal

I'd like to find at least five sponsors.

writing goal:
150 hours in the chair
