 Meet Ninie



On The Page

It is my mission, my vision and passion, to tell good stories. I’ve been telling stories my whole life, starting with my first book at age eight, the gripping, suspense-filled, edge-of-your-seat saga . . .more

Suspense Author

Welcome to my world. If you'd like to know more about me, I'm easy. Click on Meet Ninie and you'll see. My life isn't really an open book; it's more of a pamphlet, and you are cordially invited to read it. I'd love to interact with you on Twitter, Facebook Fan page, and Goodreads. Or come visit with me at 9e's Kitchen Table, a Facebook group where readers and I hang out. I think you'd like it.
