Pseudonym: Nikita Black.
Nina Bruhns credits her gypsy great-grandfather for her great love of adventure. She has lived and traveled all over the world, including six years in Sweden. She has two graduate degrees in archaeology (with a specialty in Egyptology), and like her idol Indiana Jones, has been on scientific expeditions from California to Spain to Egypt and the Sudan.
All this has been great fodder for her books. A best-selling author for Berkley Publishing, Silhouette Nocturne and Silhouette Romantic Suspense, Nina's many adventures give her stories a colorful dimension and allow her to create vivid settings and characters that are out of the ordinary. She has earned two RITA nominations, and has won numerous other awards for her published books, including the prestigious National Readers Choice Award, three Daphne du Maurier Awards of Excellence for Overall Best Mystery/Suspense Novel of the year, five Dorothy Parker Awards, several RT BookClub Reviewers Awards, as well as having her books named Best Series Book of the Year by more than one online review site.
A native of Canada, Nina grew up in California and currently resides in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina.
