Nancy Naigle writes love stories from the crossroad of small town and suspense.
With a career spent on the cutting edge of technology in the banking industry, Nancy spends her extra time writing the kind of stories she likes to read, in hopes that just maybe other career gals can find an escape from their hectic lifestyles in the make believe worlds she creates.
Aside from writing she enjoys hunting for treasures in junk and antique shoppes with friends, and getting crafty no matter what the medium from painting and digitizing embroidery designs, to weaving pine needle baskets.
A Virginia native, and spending most of her life in the Tidewater area, she and her husband of 15 years moved inland to the quiet of Southampton County. They now live in a log-sided home on a working goat farm with their two labs and more kids (the four-legged kind) than they keep count of, where they live their own small town love story.
Places to find Nancy:
If authors are your rock stars, then becoming a member of a street team might be right up your alley. It used to be that street teams were reserved to musicians and big rock stars. KISS had the KISS ARMY, Bret Michaels has a street team, and countless others have done it. They’ve leveraged their friends and fans to make a grass roots effort to share what they love with others. The cool thing about street teams is the members help spread the word through their local touch points in the ways that they are comfortable with. In return, they get limited edition merchandise and early previews of new releases.
The day a writer can write a book as fast as a reader can read it – we may not need street teams, but until then we need a way to keep you in the loop about when our books are coming out and building readership is more important than ever with so many books available. Rumor has it that there are hundreds of thousands of books published last year....yeeezow!
I’ve joined forces with four other authors and our first members helped us name our street team. I think the name is perfect - the Dangerous Darlings.

What is the mission- READ. REACH OUT. REPEAT.
Where- In your own neck of the woods. Your friends, your library, bookstores, clubs etc.
