Official Bio: Nina Nolan has been writing for as long as she can remember (she sent out her first story to publishers when she was ten years old). When Nina read Just Mahalia, Baby by Laurraine Goreau, she was fascinated by the amazing and graceful life of Mahalia Jackson. She wanted more people, especially young ones, to know about Mahalia, so they could feel empowered by her strength, too.
Nina has been a member of the SCBWI for over 25 years. She lives in the city of Portland, Oregon.
