Nancy G. West
When Nancy was seven, she and her mother wrote poems to each other. The poetry was awful, but Nancy learned if you wrote something, people stopped to read it.
In high school, LJ’s Pegasus published her poem. At eighteen--since journalists were underpaid and English grads sold lingerie--she slogged through General Business at UT-Austin, earning a BBA. Fortunately, one elective was Creative Writing.
Married, with two daughters, Nancy read books on writing, wrote articles, poetry, the biography of artist Jose Vives-Atsara, and founded Book Publishers of Texas.
Back in college studying English literature, she wrote NINE DAYS TO EVIL, a novel of psychological suspense. She wrote the Book Shelf column for San Antonio Woman, and NPR broadcast her poem, "Time to Lie".
Aggie Mundeen, a character from NINE DAYS, captivated Nancy and led her to create award-winning Aggie Mundeen mysteries. Nancy is working on Aggie’s fourth escapade, convinced that writing is a lot more fun than accounting.
