About the Author

Nancy is a highly educated, self -taught question asker who was born in Grand Island, Nebraska. By age four, she'd discovered scribbling outside the lines was a lot of fun. At the kitchen table she made a determined commitment to someday make scribbling LOOK GOOD. At age thirteen, living in Los Angeles, she began life drawing four to eight hours a week under the tutelage of two commercial artists. After high school she attended Long Beach State, almost flunked out, but returned several years later. One day her art instructor highly suggested she stick to writing and, within an hour, her writing teacher said she'd better focus on art. 'But,' Nancy wondered 'what would happen if I don't quit?'

She moved to Portland, Oregon where she graduated from Lewis and Clark College, where she lives today, and more importantly where she scribbles in Crayola Crayons. Her pictures are pulchritudinous pieces of sublime energy. Her stories, created to be read out loud, are crafted in words that rattle teeth, caress tongues and feel good in the mouth. The tales themselves create new thoughts and possibilities while the story lines reveal added depth at every reading. For the listener, Nancy stimulates the, 'why did they do that?' thoughts, and a love of words. In Nancy's stories children are cherished members of families with unique grown-ups and downs and where work and play are the same.
