Welcome!

Nancy lives and works in the Upstate area of South Carolina with her Irish Wolfhounds, Bryn and Ciaragh, her terrier mix, Willow, and her husband, Simon. Nancy is a nationally certified American Sign Language/English interpreter and a writer. She also spends many weekends working at the Enchanted ChaliceGeorgia and Carolina Renaissance Festivals with the group she founded, The Hounds of East Fairhaven.

Her Orana Chronicles series begins with the Nature Walker Trilogy – Wanderer: Origin of the Nature Walker, Tempest: Fall of the Nature Walker, and Guardian: Rise of the Nature Walker.  A young wood elf named Gin who has barely begun her studies as a druid finds herself thrown into the wider world beyond the Great Forest. Can she find a way to tame the wilds of her world, righting old wrongs and bringing centuries’ long enemies together?

Ignite: Tales of the Forest War begins a new series that goes back hundreds of years before the events of the Nature Walker Trilogy to the Forest War, a pivotal point in the history of Orana. The second and concluding volume in that series, Scorch, launched in March of 2020. All of the Orana Chronicles are currently available to read for free via Kindle Unlimited.

Proud Racer, her first series – published more than a decade ago – follows the lives of her ‘Proud Racers,’ her retired racing greyhounds, told in their own words. The first four books in the series (now out of print as stand-alone novels) are available in one volume, with the fifth (and final) book, An American Greyhound in Yorkshire, available as a stand-alone novel.

The Clobberpaws series tells the tale of her Irish Wolfhound, Bryn (Our Bryndled Beastie, CGC), in Bryn’s own words. The second book in that series features her terrier mix Willow-Pickle (Our Whomping Willow) and newest Clobberpaws, Ciaragh (Our Cailín Ádh). All books in the Clobberpaws series are available to read for free on Kindle Unlimited. Be sure to visit Our Daily Bryn for a glimpse into her life with two giant muppets and a bristle brush.
