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

This year, I'm going to attempt to write the first draft of a novel over the six weeks of Clarion Write-a-thon.

Fundraising Goal

I'd like to find at least ten sponsors.

71000 words written
