Nancy Massand photoMy first published piece was in The Sunday Telegram in Worcester, Massachusetts, during the Jurassic era. I was six. No one had ever heard of a computer, or even an electric typewriter. I plucked my pet chicken and dipped the quill in ink. Okay, people of a certain age tend to embellish sometimes, but we’ve earned that privilege. Just so you know, it’s all true except for the pet chicken.

My short stories and creative nonfiction have appeared in Chicken Soup for the Soul, A Cup of Comfort, and various online e-zines such as Storyhouse.org. I collaborated with my daughter on the books for two children’s musicals performed at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, CA.  My debut novel, The Circle Unbroken, won first place in the Romance Writers of America’s annual Hearts Through History competition in 2018. It will be released in September 2019 by Soul Mate Publishing. Happily, a laptop has replaced the pet chicken and the cloud is now my manuscript drawer. Still writing after all these years.
