Nancy learned needlecrafts as a young girl and has been sewing, knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching, and tatting for nearly forty years. Before embarking in writing about crafts, she taught all needlecrafts to anyone who wanted to learn. She began rewriting instructions for her students who were having difficulty understanding the information in the kits and booklets.
Nancy is a perpetual student of organic gardening. Her writing in this area reflects the lessons learned, and therefore is appropriate to beginner audiences as well as more experienced gardeners. Her interest in this industry focuses on helping people grow great-tasting food with a minimum of chemical application. She addresses soil preparation, planting, compost, cultivating, watering, harvesting, and saving the seeds for next year. Upcoming projects will include livestock.
Nancy is a technology professional who maintains two blogs devoted to technology use, innovations in technology, security, and how technology impacts our lives. She holds industry certifications in computer hardware, operating systems, networks, and security. She enjoys teaching people how to enjoy using their tech tools, and she has made it her mission to help people learn how to stay safe on the web. She is also a science geek who writes on space, medical technology, and how technology impacts our liberty.
