However, at the age of ten, she moved to New Zealand, which became her home. Her work took her to Japan for three years and she also toured Asia for a while. But she found her way back to New Zealand, which is why she is categorized as a New Zealand author.
Nalini, who has a lot of fans in Germany and the US, attended Mt Roskill Grammar School and Auckland University. Life in Auckland had a strong impact on the author’s novels. The city’s diversity allowed Nalini to interact with people from various cultures, which is why her books are filled with characters from so many unique backgrounds.
It is also worth noting that Nalini is of Indian descent. As a child, she couldn’t ignore the fact that Indian names did not feature on any of the genre books she saw in bookstores. Her success in the publishing industry paved the way for other young Indian writers like her who needed a model to encourage them to pursue their dreams.
As her career advanced, Nalini was glad to see that Indian names were becoming far more commonplace in her genre. The author imputes some of her success to the interesting path she followed as she pursued her writing dreams.
Reading was part of her life from a very young age. The people around her knew that she loved books and they went out of their way to gift her with novels. She was drawn to romance, science fiction, and fantasy. Though, she never limited her reading habits to any particular genre.
Nalini also remembers being a daydreamer. As a child, she spent far too much time creating imaginary adventures that kept her occupied for so long that she eventually started craving the opportunity to put them on paper, which she did when she was 18.
She wrote her first novel and sent it out. For her efforts, she was rewarded with a litany of rejection letters that she chose to keep rather than discarding. For a time, she worked at a family-owned Candy factory.
This kept her financially afloat in university. Following her graduation, she became a junior lawyer. Life in the legal field was somewhat challenging because she spent her days reading briefs and her nights writing romance novels.
The author is thankful for the Silhouette Desire editor who took a chance on her first book, pulling it out of the pile and eventually publishing it under the ‘Desert Warrior’ title in 2002. Nalini Singh was just 25 at the time.
She tried to juggle her writing and her full-time job. The experience taught her to prioritize her time. Rather than looking for conducive moments to write, Nalini learned to use every single free second that came her way to pen her stories.
She eventually left the legal field to become a full-time writer. Though her law degree had taught her to think rationally and the skill helped her once she realized how much work she was expected to inject into her publishing career.
Nalini Singh Awards
Nalini has won various prizes for her writing over the years, including All About Romance Reader, RT Reviewers Choice, Jane Porter, and Clendon Reader’s Choice Awards.
Best Nalini Singh Books
Nalini doesn’t have any writing routines. This is because she has enough discipline to write anywhere at any time regardless of the situation. Some of Nalini’s best books include:
Angel’s Blood: Elena was certain that she was the best vampire hunter around. But then the archangel Raphael gave her a task like nothing she had ever encountered. Elena was charged with hunting down a rogue archangel. She did not expect Raphael’s seductive ways to present such a challenge.
Slave to Sensation: The changing and psy races are on the verge of open war, and only Lucas and Sascha can maintain the peace. A number of changeling women are dead and Lucas is convinced that a psy killer is to blame.
He hopes to use the icy Sascha to track the culprit down. But Sascha isn’t quite as numb to Lucas’ passion as he thinks. Unfortunately for her, she comes from an emotion-free society that punishes the very desires that Lucas has awakened in her.
