My Story

   I live in upstate New York with Ela, a mixed breed rescue from the Puerto Rico hurricanes. I had to learn Spanish to communicate with her and I am teaching her English.

   Upstate New York is great for just about any outdoor activity/sport that you can imagine-some of which I participate in are biking, hiking, kayaking, and gardening, but walking with Ela is one of my favorite things to do! I also love to read and listen to audio books(which I do whenever I drive or walk) and watch movies(especially fantasy and sci fi),

  I have been writing in some form or other since high school when I bought my first guitar--a 12 string for $50 from a magazine my mother used to receive in the mail. After teaching myself how to play, I began writing songs. Dooley(my music partner) and I recorded a CD  of original songs. It was a wonderful experience.

    In college, I started my first novel, but never finished it. Life kind of got in the way. I started writing again, and I have written many novels. Maybe one day I'll go back and complete that first attempt

     I recently retired from 40 hour work weeks.  Woohoo!!  I am excited to be able to spend more time on my writing. But along with continuing to go to movies, walk my dog, bike and gardening, I look forward to whatever new adventures life brings to me.

Music by nance and dooley          

    I have been singing, playing guitar and writing music since high school. I was fortunate to meet someone many years ago who shares this passion with me. Diane(Dooley) and I have been performing and writing music together for over twenty years. We’ve performed at small cafes, weddings, occasions such as Cancer Survival Celebrations and lots of campfires. Over the years we’ve written music about life’s events-everything from losing hair due to chemotherapy to losing love. And just as there is lots of harmony in life, there is lots of harmony in our songs. So take a listen. We hope you enjoy our music as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
