Nina Beaumont was born in Salzburg, Austria, home to Mozart and the Von Trapp family. She is of Russian descent, and her family tree includes the Stroganoff family, Count Zhubov, who is reputed to have been Catherine the Great's last lover, and several other interesting historical characters. She grew up in Massachusetts, USA, and has lived in Seattle, WA, but being an inveterate traveler, she has moved back and forth between US and Austria all her life--besides other interesting travels.
She started writing as a child (one of her early "works" was a 25-page sequel to GONE WITH THE WIND), and she worked for many years as a translator and editor. Her life-long interest in history and her fluency in several languages have been of great help in the in-depth research she does for her books, which includes traveling to where the stories are set.
She now lives in Austria, and she is thrilled to be back working full time on her European-set historical romances. Whenever she can pry herself away from her computer, she is liable to be indulging one of her passions--reading, cooking, classical music, and traveling. One of these days, she's going to get back to painting watercolors.
