Nancy travels extensively-at times on the back of a Harley Davidson-speaking and teaching to groups of `tween girls and their moms and mentoring aspiring Christian authors. She lives on a lake in Tennessee with her Harley-ridin' husband Jim and their two yellow labs (without whom writing would be difficult.)

Her Lily Series, published by Zondervan, has sold well over one million copies. Her ability to relate to a wide audience has made her a popular radio and television guest and an in-demand speaker and teacher for writer’s conferences across the country. She has been a regular keynoter for The Young Writer’s Institute and Virtuous Reality Ministries, and now anchors Zondervan’s Beauty of Believing Tour for FaithGirlz, which draws thousands of tween girls and their moms. Nancy teaches at Christian writer’s conferences, is the founder of “Writing the Ages”, a four-day intensive workshop for children’s and Y.A. authors in Glen Eyrie, Colorado, and she offers mentoring for individuals committed to writing ministry. Her latest titles include the Christy Award winning The Reluctant Prophet for adult readers (David C. Cook), Unexpected Dismounts, (David C. Cook), Limos, Lattes, and My Life On the Fringe (Zondervan), which is part of a Christy-Award winning teen series, and The Whole Guy Thing (Zondervan) – in addition to a book written with her husband entitled What Happened To My Little Girl: A Dad’s Guide to His Tween Daughter. A student of the Academy for Spiritual Formation, sponsored by the Upper Room, Nancy continues her own spiritual journey even as she writes and speaks for mothers, daughters, and would-be writers about theirs.
