Nancy Peacock


Nancy Peacock's first novel LIFE WITHOUT WATER was chosen as a NEW YORK TIMES Notable Book. She followed with a second novel, HOME ACROSS THE ROAD, and her memoir, A BROOM OF ONE'S OWN: WORDS ON WRITING, HOUSECLEANING AND LIFE about her experiences supporting herself as a self-employed housecleaner while writing and publishing. With the exception of a few very fine mentors Peacock is self-taught. She has the dubious distinction of being featured in THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER as "the writing maid" and it was this experience that kicked off the penning of her memoir. She teaches writing in her studio in Orange County, North Carolina. THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PERSIMMON WILSON is her first historical novel.
