Given her taste for adventure and strange creatures, it is no surprise that Nina's favorite childhood books include the works of Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking) and The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. These books served as an inspiration to Nina as she began writing poetry and stage plays at the age of 13.
Despite a lack of encouragement from her parents, Nina pursued a work placement in journalism and began to further develop her craft. She credits the books of Theodore Sturgen as a major influence on her writing, and lives by her own advice of "Never forget your notebook!" as she often finds herself inspired by ordinary people doing everyday things.
In her novel The Pact of the Wolves (Spring 2008), Nina explores her fascination with secret societies, which she supplements with historic facts from a 17th-century German witch trial—two dark, mysterious topics that create an eerie backdrop for her cast of spellbinding characters.
Today Nina Blazon lives with her husband in Stuttgart, Germany—80 kilometers (50 miles) from the Black Forest. She enjoys traveling through Scandinavia, history, cinema, riding, and—undoubtedly—exploring the woods in search of dark creatures and bone-chilling adventures!
