Confirmed nerds will revel in a diverse cast, zany fandoms, and cosplaying crowds, but this is for any reader seeking a smart breezy, coming-of-age about finding your friends—and finding your inconvenient self.

Nancy's debut middle-grade novel - March, 2022!

France, 1531.

Fifteen-year-old Sylvie has run away from her home village. Martin, who's only eight and stubborn, has followed her, insisting that he won't let her go alone -- and anyway, he wants to see the world!

Sylvie doesn't.

She can't go home, though. Not yet. Because Sylvie has a strange healing power that she is only beginning to understand. And she needs a teacher who will help her learn to undo what she did before she left . . . and how to make sure she becomes who she's meant to be: a magical healer. A wise-woman.

But there's more to learn than magic, out in the world.

About Nancy

"I don’t know if I have literary influences. Probably. But I know for sure that several books I read early on were (for good or bad) life influences: The Cat in the Hat, Harriet the Spy, A Little Princess, Far From the Madding Crowd, and Jane Eyre.”
