Since dedicating her writing to themes of faith and how ordinary people can discover their unique purpose, Nancy has had eleven books published --- three books of inspirational humor and nine novels. She is the author of six books with Multnomah Publishers. The Mustard Seed series: The Invitation, The Quest, and The Temptation; a novel about heroes and survivors, The Seat Beside Me (a finalist in two national award contests); and two books in the Steadfast series: A Steadfast Surrender and The Ultimatum. Her time travel novel, Time Lottery (Barbour Publishers), came out in August 2002 and won a Christy Award. The sequel, Second Time Around, will be released in November 2004. She is currently co-authoring a series with Campus Crusade co-founder Vonette Bright. The first two books have been released in the bestselling Sister Circle series (Tyndale House Publishers): The Sister Circle and 'Round the Corner. Nancy teaches writing at a regional college and is an inspirational speaker.
Nancy has been married for twenty-eight years. She and her husband have three children: 26, 23, and 19, which means they have a zillion years experience in the wonders and pitfalls of parenting (or maybe it just seems that long). She's been blessed with a varied life. She's earned a degree in architecture; run a business with her husband; traveled extensively in Europe; and performed in various theaters, symphonies, and choirs. She needlepoints voraciously, kills all her houseplants, and can wire an electrical fixture without getting shocked. She is a fan of anything antique --- humans included.
