Bio: After a great career in teaching, Nancy found a second calling as a writer. Ohio is her home but she loves to travel the U.S. Her debut novel, Waiting for Dusk, was a surprise to her as much as it was to her family. Watching a PBS series on National Parks, her mind wandered to another place and that is where the characters of Katie and Andrew were born. She has added two more books to the series and is working on a prequel to Waiting for Dusk. The Swedish influences found in the book came from her mother whose parents emigrated from Sweden.
