Nancy LiPetri lived on Lake Norman, North Carolina, fourteen years and shares her passion for the region through realism in her novels, The Wooded Path and Across the Lake.

Originally from Iowa, she has enjoyed living on both U.S. coasts and in her husband’s native Chicago. While it keeps her quite busy writing about believable characters experiencing a spectrum of issues people don’t always reveal ...more

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.”
