Born Nurhayati Srihardini in Semarang on February 29, 1936, Dini later attributed her interest in storytelling to her earliest memories of watching traveling theater companies, and listening to traditional legends and family tales recounted by her parents or older sister. When her father died just prior to her entry to junior high school in 1950, she became somewhat introverted and began writing stories to work through those emotions. Having begun in her teens to contribute poems and stories to various small magazines and the local Semarang radio station, she established her national reputation as a competent writer of short fiction at the age of 20 with her first published collection Dua Dunia [Two worlds] (1956), reinforcing this with the serialization of her short novel Hati yang damai [Peaceful heart] four years later.
