Biography

Nancy Bush

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nancy Bush has had an eclectic writing career. She began her career in the romance genre, writing both contemporary and historical novels, but being a mystery buff, she kept trying to add suspense into the plot, as much as her editors would allow. In 2002 she was chosen by ABC Television to be part of a writing group “think tank” which was tasked with developing story for ABC’s daytime dramas. She was one of two people selected from that group to actually become a breakdown writer for, at the time, one of ABC’s top-rated daytime shows: "All My Children."

Nancy wrote three Jane Kelly Mystery novels in the space of three years. During the last several years, she’s turned her attention to romantic suspense novels, writing HUSH and co-writing WICKED GAME and WICKED LIES with her sister, the bestselling author Lisa Jackson.

Nancy Bush lives in Oregon with her family.
