Raised in rural New England, Nancy DeMarco doesn't mind swimming with bloodsuckers, drinking from snow melt, and outrunning deer flies. Like her characters, she has spent most of her life in the woods of New Hampshire, hiking the trails and riding horses. Climbing trees is still a favorite summer pastime.
When DeMarco was struck with Lyme disease, she found herself barely able to complete a sentence. Her writing began as therapy and quickly grew to a passion. Today she seeks to infuse her work with a sense of small-town community, along with plenty of laughter and, most of all, a sense of finding one's strength, overcoming odds, and following dreams.
