Nadia Bruce-Rawlings

Nadia Bruce-Rawlings uses grains of her once-gritty life to infuse her stories with cathartic realism. She grew up traveling the world and living in various countries before settling in Los Angeles. There she briefly worked at a vitamin factory and then began a long career in the film industry.  In recovery since 1998 from drugs, alcohol, and an abusive but privileged upbringing, she and her husband have now settled into the Nashville area, where she writes by the lake when she can escape their five kids and two dogs. 

 Her stories “Fire” and “Scars” were both finalists in Glimmer Train’s writing contests. Her anthology SCARS  was published by Punk Hostage Press. Her story “Peace Accord” was featured in the Spring 2018 edition of Bluestem Magazine. In addition, she and fellow author Lois Berg co-wrote a song featured in a theatrical event they created and starred in, called Battered But Not Broken, which was a Critic’s Pick in the Nashville Scene. The show debuted at The Darkhorse Theatre as a fundraiser for battered women.
