NJ Prince was born in West Virginia in 1980, the first daughter of a single mother.
She made her first professional novella sale in 2016 on Amazon. In 2006, she took classes at the local community college for psychology. That fall, she became a mother. Writing in the evenings and on weekends, she continued to produce stories for free. In the winter of 2016, her husband became a manager and her daughter was in school, allowing her to write full time. Prince is the recipient of a 2012 daily deviation at deviantART.
Prince lives in New York with her husband, a dark fantasy novelist himself, as well as their daughter. They are regular contributors to several charities, including the rescue of exotic cats from abuse.
