Nancy N. Wilson writing under the pen name of Susan Sumner.
At a very young age I discovered the wealth of information that could be found in books, plus the magical journeys I could take through the power of words! Reading became the center of my life.
The town library was located in the Women's Club of my little farming community that I called home. In my eyes, it was the grandest building in town - newly built, with a heavenly air-conditioner that sheltered me from the blazing heat of Arizona summer days. It was my personal cocoon in which I could read the hours away.
Later in high school, as I continued to devour books by the dozens, I discovered writing and began to create my own works. It was a magical time! My love affair with the written word began and has never really stopped.
Unfortunately, my affair was dealt a serious blow during my first year in college when an English professor told me that I used a lot of words, but said very little. His words went to my very core and hobbled my writing confidence for a number of years. I continued to write, but not with the same excitement and enthusiasm that I had previously enjoyed.
It was not until many years later that everything turned around. After completing my MBA as a "mature woman" I found a position with a Leadership Development Training Company in Manhattan that required use of three major passions: my insatiable curiosity of how and why things work, my love of learning through books, and my need to write and be published.
I know, my work wasn't published in the true sense of the word, but my words were in print and people were reading them and using them to improve their professional lives. I had finally begun to realize my dream.
Now I am retired and living the dream on a daily basis. I write many hours every day. I can proudly say that I have 25 books published with one more to be published soon. It is an amazing feeling!
