She is the author of the children’s historical novel Chips the War Dog [recently re-published as Chips the Hometown Hero, and the illustrated children's book Kali Leads the Way.

In 2006, Nancy created Off Lead Publications, a publishing house that specializes in stories about dogs.

"We support not-for-profit organizations dedicated to a sustainable quality of life for all creatures--great or small."

Nancy lives in the New York area. She frequently travels throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast United States promoting and signing her books.
