After a career in teaching, Nancy began writing young adult books. The Waiting for Dusk series includes a historical fiction prequel, Broken Dreams. The fantasy romance series has three books-Waiting for Dusk, Call of the Canyon and Stealing Time. The Swedish influences in the series come from her mother whose parents emigrated from Sweden.
Her new series-Twenty Nine-has slowly developed over time. Last Leap Year, an idea came to her and she created the characters and story based on that special day, February 29.
She has now branched out into historical romance with her Clan MacLaren series.
Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, Nancy currently resides in Mentor, Ohio with her husband, son, and a delightfully entertaining lovebird.

There's an old song that goes something like, summertime and the living is easy...but I find itquite the opposite! Graduations, weddings and baby showers seem to take over the season. Add gardening, outdoor chores, and grass cutting to the list and it makes you thankful for longer days!
