About this author

Nina Rossing lives in Norway, where the winters are long and the summers short. Despite the brilliant nature surrounding her, she spends more time in front of her computer, or with a book in her hands, than in the great outdoors (though you may find her out on her mountain bike if the weather is good). She works as a high school teacher, which in her opinion is probably the best job in the world.

Nina is an avid and eclectic reader whose bookshelves are bursting (and so is her e-reader). After thinking about writing for many years, she now finds time to live out her dream after her kids are in bed. She prefers creating young adult stories where obstacles are overcome and endings are hopeful.

Hi Jocelyn - lovely to hear from you!
"Supermassive" took a few years to finally develop into a novel, but most of the inspiration for its Norwegian setting I found when I worked in a place pretty similar to the one in the book. I knew I wanted to write a good old love story, and I wanted the remote surroundings to amplify the intense emotions of the protagonist. The universal feeling of insecurity when you're in love and don't know if the feeling is mutual, and how difficult it is to put yourself out there to find answers, was what I wanted to be central to the story - I knew the fact that he is in love with another boy would never be the main obstacle.(less)

In one of the novels I’m currently working on, a couple of the characters listen to music I find dreadful. But to make sure things are realistic, I have to listen to this music too, or I won’t truly get into the mode of these characters. It’s not that I mention this band much at […]

The guy in this book is genuinely a good person, and it was nice to read a romance where the guy isn't possessive and gets away with it because it's supposedly so romaaaaantic.
I also appreciated how the lack of 'relationship misunderstandings' kind...more

Did not expect to bawl like a baby, and then I did.
Book started out so-so, then latched on to some familiar patterns, and I thought uh-oh, but then Miles sort of got to me and before long I was left a puddle on the sofa.

Sweet, fun, realistic. No unnecessary drama. Good summer read. Will read sequel.

Sherman Alexie
“I grabbed my book and opened it up. I wanted to smell it. Heck, I wanted to kiss it. Yes, kiss it. That's right, I am a book kisser. Maybe that's kind of perverted or maybe it's just romantic and highly intelligent.”
