Nina Soden

Author Nina Soden has always been creative, be it art, theatre, film - anything but singing - she says that is the one thing no one wants to hear that! She earned her bachelor's degree in Theatre and Military Science from EMU where she says she spent most of her time either on stage, rappelling down buildings, or working one of three jobs. After college she moved to Los Angeles, like so many other want-to-be actors, in pursuit of her dreams. She worked to pay the bills... but her real love was acting and she was actually somewhat successful, mostly in commercials and independent films and she says that she had a great time doing it.

In 2008, after some major life changes, she self-published her first book PRIVATE WORDS UNSPOKEN, a compilation of poetry. Since then, her dreams have gotten bigger and she would like to think her storytelling ability has gotten better. She has done everything from secretarial work to business development to being the Director of a private preschool. She has fired a M16, jumped out of a C130, and given birth - TWICE - but she always returns to her art.

Though she'll forever be a Michigan girl at heart, she now lives in the South with her husband and two beautiful children. If she isn't working on her latest story, she can be found lounging with a good book, playing with her kids, or indulging in her unhealthy addiction to Starbucks coffee.
