Nancy Clark Townsend was born in New York City's Borough of Manhattan, but lived most of her life in New York State's Lower Hudson Valley. She has shared her home or cared for an assortment of animals – dogs, cats, parakeets, ferrets, box turtles, chickens and goats among others. With her late trainer-driver husband, she owned and raced several harness horses. Nancy has been writing for pleasure since she was eight. She studied Creative Writing at SUNY Empire State College and took many “Writer’s Digest” courses. She has written several romance and suspense novels and is currently working on a personal memoir and a collection of animal memoirs. She is the editor/writer of her church’s newsletter, “Church Chatter,” for which she also creates a Bible Word Search and Acrostic. She was a legal secretary for over twenty-five years. Later, as an education secretary, Nancy worked with teachers to write and produce curriculum guides for elementary and high school students. In one, she re-wrote and modernized several of Aesop's Fables. She belongs to two on-line writing groups – Advanced Writing Workshop and AARP’s Writing Memoir. Her short thriller, "The Dog and the Nike," will appear in the anthology, “That One Left Shoe” published in 2012 by Blue Dragon Press. Nancy's son Greg is a police lieutenant in a city in upstate New York. Her daughter Karen, whom she describes as "the incredible soccer mom", lives in Virginia. Her stepson Michael is a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, stationed in Georgia. Among them Nancy has nine grandchildren.

    Furred and Feathered Friends is a wonderful story about surviva


    Furred and Feathered Friends is a wonderful story about survival and friendship plus highlighting the efforts of
    the rescue teams during Katrina disaster.
    A group of animals joins forces to survive. Their friendship and survival skills make this a fascinating book.
    This story would make a wonderful Walt Disney movie.
