Nin considers herself, apart from being a published professional author and poet, a multi-medium creative. She is a lifelong music student who composes, and who has had several ups, downs and complete hiatuses from music-learning, and cannot be considered good (yet). She is also a visual artist who has been paid for commissioned works in the past, and designs hypertext games and IF narratives. She has been teaching hypertext fiction to creative writing students for a decade now and has been working within the medium since 1997. Her varied interests include but are by no means limited to: languages and language learning, books/reading, chess, travel, walking/dérives, swimming, nature, visual arts, photography (both digital and film/SLR), design, balcony gardening and cooking. She also loves reading, writing and editing fairytales/fairytale scholarship.
