Nina is the author of five novels which have been selected for numerous “Campus Reads” and “Community Reads” programs. Her second novel, Southland (2003), was one of the books in the California Center for the Book’s “Mysterious California” discussion kits. This title was a Los Angeles Times bestseller, an Edgar Award finalist, and the winner of the Lambda Literary Award. Her latest book, Lost Canyon (2015), is described by Booklist as “a gripping tale of unintended adventure and profound transformation.” Nina is executive vice president and chief operating officer of a large nonprofit organization serving children affected by violence and poverty in Los Angeles.
