The Secret Formula is Nancy's debut book. What began as a way to keep her grandchildren entertained, has evolved into an exciting series about a carrot named Chompy who discovers an ancient carrot formula for super-powered eyesight. The series, called Chompy & The Munchy Bunch, is geared toward 4-8 year olds, and while the kids love re-enacting the "Chompy Juice" portion of the book, parents appreciate the hidden nutritional messages. Volume 2, "Search for the Hidden Treasure" was published on September 12, 2016.
Nancy's path to writing is a bit unorthodox, having spent the last 30 years as an entrepreneur/inventor. In the '80's she operated a print shop before inventing a product called the Pie Saver, which are foil rings that prevent pies from burning (came from her love of baking!) "Running a business is similar to writing -- there are lots of ups and downs but you can never give up!" Now with three grandchildren to enjoy, she felt the time was right to try her hand at writing children's books, and the children are loving Chompy and his pals! Nancy has two children and lives in Maine and Florida with her husband of 41 years.
