One of her fans summed it up best at a book-signing - “If this woman writes a grocery list, I want to read it!”
Ninie is an extremely gifted, consummate story teller who draws on events from a twenty-five year career as a journalist to fuel her novels. Her first book, the biography God Said Yes, was published by Penguin’s Berkeley imprint and highlighted her gift for weaving facts into a gripping human-interest saga.
Readers of thrilling fiction will not want to miss a single book – or her characters. Whether it’s Bobo from The Memory Closet, Bubba Jamison from Home Grown, or Princess from Five Days in May – her characters will stay with you forever.
By the time you’ve read the first chapter of any of her books, you’ll understand why Ninie was selected to be the flagship author for the launch of the Bay Forest cinematic novel imprint.
Her third novel, Home Grown, is part autobiographical and a spine-tingler. As an investigative reporter in the 1980s she received death threats as she helped break the story of the Cornbread Mafia—the largest domestic marijuana-producing cooperative in American history.
Ninie also was the founder of a 65,000-readership newspaper, serving as its publisher for a decade. Through her career as a journalist and now through her cinematic novels, Ninie enjoys a large (and growing) fan base.
