I am Nanette Buchanan, a native of Newark, New Jersey. I am a proud mother, wife and grandmother. I am currently an employee of the State of New Jersey and look forward to retiring and writing full time. I began writing while attending Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Poetry, children stories and now novels are a part of my writing experience. My poems have been read publicly, sold as greeting cards, and as personalized gifts.

My novels have opened new avenues for my literary experience. Not only have I rekindled my love for writing but found purpose in promoting literacy and the performing arts through "The Author's Den".
