Nancy began her writing career a bit differently than most. The first fifty two chapters of Amulet (DragonBlade Series) were written in a tent. Some were written in the front seat of a pick-up truck in the short spurts of the two hour battery life of her laptop.
Following some financial setbacks beyond their control, and the sudden death of her children's father, Nancy, her husband, and two special needs adult children found themselves without a place to live - for nearly nine months. It was not all doom and gloom, however. One of the fond memories of that time was being adopted by a family of geese. There were three families of geese in the area, and one of these families decided it was their obligation to protect Nancy and her family. The Canada Goose family would not allow any other geese near them, and would chase any bread-seekers away.
Nancy now lives nearly three thousand miles away from there - in a house - with her family. Writing Amulet was definitely a pivotal point that changed their lives, and in many ways the story reflects their own journey.
Nancy is the author of The DragonBlade Series, a different kind of Fantasy/Adventure. She is currently working on Book Three of the DragonBlade Series, as well as having several other projects in the works.
