"I try to write the type of books I love to read -- with action, humor, and usually a touch of romance."
Currently working on the sequel to "The Essence", Nancy lives in a hut with a jungle of plants, a well trained parrot and several blue-tailed skinks. The skinks are welcome guests as they scurry about keeping the insect population in check.
When she's not dipping her toes into the water or tripping over shells on the beach (or writing), Nancy's sailing with her husband on his 40' sailboat into the sunset.
But not everyday, as it doesn't have wireless and she's addicted to the internet.
Of course, very little of the above is true, but it sounds better than real life, and what did you expect from a writer of fiction?
Seriously, I hope you enjoy reading "The Essence". Please let me know what you think of it. If you like the book, please consider writing a review. If you have any other comments, please send them to me at my gmail address, NDESMAC, with "book comment" in the subject line.

Intriguing story! Ray is an engaging character, someone you’d like to spend a day fishing with. Fun to read -- great twist at the end.
