Nancy Nau Sullivan began writing wavy lines at age six, thinking it was the beginning of her first novel. It wasn’t. But she didn’t stop writing. After eight years of newspaper work in high school and college she contributed to editorial posts at New York magazines and for newspapers throughout the Midwest.
Nancy grew up outside Chicago but often visited Anna Maria Island, Florida. She returned there with her family and wrote an award-winning memoir, The Last Cadillac, about the years she cared for her father while her children were still at home––a harrowing adventure of travel, health issues, adolescent angst, with a hurricane thrown in for good measure. She went back to the Florida setting for her first cozy mystery, Saving Tuna Street, creating the fictional Santa Maria Island.
Nancy, for the most part, lives in Northwest Indiana. She is a graduate of the University of South Florida and holds a MS degree in journalism from Marquette University. Find her at nancynausullivan.com and Twitter @NauSullivan.
