Nancy lived over a dozen years on Lake Norman, North Carolina, and shares her passion for the region in her debut novel, The Wooded Path. Lake life and the dynamics of a neighborhood group of women helped inspire the story. Originally from landlocked Iowa, she now resides in Florida and has enjoyed living on both coasts and in her husband’s native Chicago in between, taking her family and freelance copywriting career with her, gathering inspiration for her fiction along the way. She appreciates realism in her favorite movies, television shows and books, and strives to entertain readers with believable characters experiencing a spectrum of issues people don’t always reveal to others.

The connection isn't always obvious, but I think it's there, at least on a subconscious level. The mystery of whether two people who connect and fall in love young, then go through many life-changing experiences that threaten to pull them in different directions, come out staying happily married decades later, is one full of intriguing what-ifs.

E.B. White
“The mind travels faster than the pen; consequently, writing becomes a question of learning to make occasional wing shots, bringing down the bird of thought as it flashes by. A writer is a gunner, sometimes waiting in the blind for something to come in, sometimes roaming the countryside hoping to scare something up.”
E.B. White, The Elements of Style

“If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn't bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented.”

“Sometimes it was hard to express how much you loved someone. You said the words, but you could never quite capture the depth of it. You could never quite hold someone tightly enough.”
