Nanci M. Pattenden is an author of historical crime fiction. After digging into her own genealogy, Nanci uncovered a story about a young ancestor, sent to Canada from an English workhouse, who ended up on trial for murder. This sparked her interest in writing fiction, and launched her into the world of novel writing.
Nanci currently has three books in the Hodgins series; Body in the Harbour, Death on Duchess Street. and Corpses for Christmas. Her interest in genealogy, local history and love of Victorian murder mysteries have merged to create a new Canadian Victorian murder mystery writer. She is a member of Sisters In Crime, Crime Writers of Canada, The Writers’ Community of York Region, and the Historical Novel Society.
Nanci has completed the Creating Writing programs at both the University of Toronto and the University of Calgary. She currently resides in Newmarket, Ontario with her fluffy cat Snowball
