About the Author
Nancy Wait was born in Chicago and grew up in New York City. She studied acting at the High School of Performing Arts and Carnegie-Mellon in Pittsburgh. In 1969 she went to London to study at RADA and had a career in England during the 1970s, appearing in film, television and theater, under the name Nancie Wait. After a spiritual awakening in 1976, she returned to New York and began a second career as a free-lance artist of architectural renderings and portraits. She also painted a series from her imagination, and it was after these she decided to write about her life. She is currently working on a second memoir.

The Nancy Who Drew is well written; it reads like a novel. Nancy Wait is engaging; her story full of dreams and unexpected turns.
She lives in New York and London. She attends one of the world's most famous acting schools, RADA [...]. Cosmopolitan, beautiful and talented; men want her. She's also deep and spiritual.
Nancy's story weaves in history around it, so we see clearly how the times influence and shape her world. We get to come along for the difficult sexual journey of a young girl becoming a young woman, in times that broke all the rules.
There is a metaphysical aspect to her story which will draw some, and mystify others. I'm not sure I understood one of the metaphysical threads in the book, but that takes away nothing from the amazing window into an intriguing woman's life.
Honestly, I want to read more from Nancy Wait.
