She wrote her first terrible novella at the age of eight, and is now focused on writing comics and novels for young adults. Her work can be seen for free in the online graphic novel,Impure Blood(www.impurebloodwebcomic.com), which is drawn by her soon-to-be husband, Nathan Lueth.

Aside from a love of a good story with pretty pictures, Nadja and Nathan share a house, a cat, a turtle, and a belief that more people should embrace their inner nerd
