Meet the Author

New York Times bestselling author Nancy J. Hajeski has written young adult nonfiction for Hammond, national award-winning romantic fiction for Penguin-Putnam, four Jane Austen graphic-novel adaptations for Marvel Entertainment, and edited a number of Lyon's Press fiction anthologies. Her interest in boxing began in childhood, when she watched prizefights on TV with her father (and saw Muhammad Ali reciting poetry on The Jack Paar Show). That interest was revived during her days as a Regency romance author doing research on an era when gentlemen would travel hundreds of miles by coach to view a match, and where betting was so heavy, fortunes could be won or lost. Hajeski works out of the Catskill Mountains in New York and lives beside a world-class trout stream.
