NOREEN NASH came to Hollywood as the Apple Blossom Queen of Wenatchee, Washington, under her given name of Noreen Roth, and began acting in movies and television as Noreen Nash. She was chosen by famed international movie director Jean Renoir for the ingénue lead in his film The Southerner, which is considered by critics to be Renoir’s best American film. Noreen decided to give up her busy and successful film career to raise a family and to attend college at UCLA, where she was a French major, and from where she graduated with honors. She was married to Dr. Lee E. Siegel for 47 years, until his death. She later married actor James Whitmore. She has two sons, Pulitzer Prize nominee Lee Siegel Jr., noted author of fifteen books and Professor of World Religions at the University of Hawaii; and Dr. Robert Siegel, head of Cardiologiy at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, Los Angeles. She has four grandchildren who are the light of her life.
Noreen was inspired by her love of French history to write Agnes Sorel, Mistress of Beauty. This is the story of a true historical figure whose loveliness remains legend, and who became the first officially designated mistress to a king of France who struggled to follow the visions of Joan of Arc.
Noreen’s study of medical history spurred her to write By Love Fulfilled, which follows a young physician in the court of Catherine de Médici during a time of social, political and religious upheaval.
