About Nancy Fraser

Like most authors, Nancy began writing at an early age, usually on the walls and with crayons or, heaven forbid, permanent markers. Her love of writing often made her the English teacher’s pet, which, of course, resulted in a whole lot of teasing. Still, it was worth it. When not writing (which is almost never), Nancy dotes on her five beautiful grandchildren and looks forward to traveling and reading when time permits. Nancy lives in Atlantic Canada where she enjoys the relaxed pace and colorful people.

Two Weeks In … The Promise of a New Year

Well here we are. Two weeks into a new year and what have we accomplished? Or, more importantly, which of our many new year’s resolutions are still alive and well? I quite honestly didn’t make any “personal” resolutions (e.g., lose … Continue reading
