About

Your humble.

From the time I could talk, I was a storyteller; when I learned how to write, I was writing my stories down.

Hi. I’m Nina MacNamara.

I’m an author, publisher, and podcaster. My books are Icarus and A Bitter Spring. I co-host the Pop Medieval podcast with my friend, Dr. Richard Scott Nokes. I am the co-founder of Witan Publishing, an academic publishing company.

If you can’t tell from my very northern accent, I’m originally from Detroit, MI — where the weather is cold and the people are colder. Today, I live in the Atlanta area where the temperature is much hotter and the people are warmer, but that accent stayed. I live with two cat roommates and a spoiled little dog.

When I’m not writing, podcasting, or working on someone else’s book, I’m hiking in the Georgia mountains, cooking in my Instant Pot, or trying to learn the clarinet.
