About this author


BIO -- NANCY SPRINGER


Nancy Springer has passed the fifty-book milestone, having written that many novels for adults, young adults and children, in genres including mythic fantasy, contemporary fiction, magical realism, horror, and mystery -- although she did not realize she wrote mystery until she won the Edgar Allan Poe Award from the Mystery Writers of America two years in succession.

Yes, working with AND behind his back. The first book just went out to publishers TODAY, but I have a reasonable expectation of finding a publisher. How many more books will be in this next Enola Holmes series depends on two things: how many the publisher is willing to take on, and how many years of writing do I have left in me. Thanks for asking!(less)

Years ago I was roped into judging a poetry contest that shall remain placeless and nameless in order to protect the guilty. On the appointed day at some time mid-afternoon I showed up to find myself in company with one other judge, a dedicated poet whose work I knew and respected. He and I were faced with several towering piles of poetry submissions and were told to select our winners by early... Read more of this blog post »
