Nina Sackheim Badzin lives in Edina, Minnesota with her husband, Bryan, and their three young children, Sam, Rebecca, and Elissa. A former English teacher, Nina now mothers most of the time and writes whenever she can. Her stories have been published in Scribblers on the Roof and Talking Stick. Her work was also honored in Glimmer Train Stories. When she’s not writing short stories, she’s busy conducting research for her third novel (the first hide safely in the bottom of a deep drawer). She can be contacted at ninaATbadzin.com or on Twitter @NinaBadzin.
