The Friends of the Washington County Public Library will have wonderful guest coming to their meeting and would like for everyone in the area to get a change to hear about Nancy Springer and her new book that is out. The meeting will be held at the Blue Lake Community Center from 12 to 1 p.m., on Feb. 7.
Nancy Springer has passed the fifty-book milestone, having written that many novels for adults, young adults and children, in genres including mythic fantasy, contemporary fiction, magical realism, horror, and mystery -- although she did not realize she wrote mystery until she won the Edgar Allan Poe Award from the Mystery Writers of America two years in succession.
DARK LIE, recently released from NAL, is her first venture into mass-market psychological suspense.
Born in Montclair, N.J., Nancy Springer moved with her family to Gettysburg, Penn., when she was 13. She spent the next 46 years in Pennsylvania, raising two children, Jonathan, 38, and Nora, 34, writing, horseback riding, fishing, and bird watching. In 2007 she surprised her friends and herself by moving with her second husband to an isolated area of the Florida panhandle, where the bird watching is spectacular and where, when fishing, she occasionally catches an alligator.
