Nina Revoyr was born in Japan, the only child of a Japanese mother and a white American father. She grew up in Tokyo, Wisconsin, and from the age of nine, Los Angeles, and she received her MFA from Cornell University. Nina is the author of three novels, The Necessary Hunger, Southland, and The Age of Dreaming. Her second novel, Southland was a BookSense 76 pick, won the Ferro Grumley and Lambda Literary Awards, and was one of the Los Angeles Times’ Best Books of 2003. Library Journal called her most recent novel, The Age of Dreaming, “Fast-moving, riveting, unpredictable and profound,” and Los Angeles Magazine wrote that “Nina Revoyr…is fast becoming one of the city’s finest chroniclers and myth-makers.” The Age of Dreaming was a finalist for the 2008 Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Nina is currently a visiting professor at Pitzer College, and has taught at Cornell University, Antioch University, and Occidental College. She has also worked for over a decade in the fields of child welfare and public education.
