“A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.”
Meet Nancy Gee, Award-winning Picture Book Author
For more than 30 years, Nancy has owned and operated May Wood Industries, a wood fabrication company that sells industrial lumber and related building materials.
Her entrepreneurial skills and drive have served her well! Not only is her debut picture book, The Secret Drawer an award-winner, it is also enjoying global reach and success. Her second book, The Secret Path is set for release in January 2016.
In addition to being a business owner and award-winning author, Nancy is a spokesperson, television, and radio personality.
Nancy graduated from Drake University. She lives in the Chicago, IL area with her husband and Odis, the cat at the center of the real-life story. Her daughter Ellen inspired the idea of the flying squirrel puppets; and Grey and Blain, her grandchildren, challenged Nancy to turn their family story into a book.
