An important message from Nancy:

Dear Reader,

I am writing to you inform you that I have to suspend my author career due to health concerns.

I have MSA. Multiple System Atrophy is a rare and fatal neurodegenerative disorder. I have perhaps between one and eight months.  It took me 3 years to write “On the Brink of Shards” and about the same amount of time to write “Stalking the Wild Dragonfly”“Rosa Gets it Right” took a year and a half. I’m not sure how much stamina I will have and how I want to spend my time.  I do regret that I’m leaving behind the partially finished high Arctic adventure novel.

In the beginning I asked, “What have I ever done to deserve this?”, but now I ask what have I ever done to deserve this kindness from so many different people.

Of course, this is just a Western Medicine diagnosis. There’s lots to explore. My motto is, “Never Give Up!” (thanks for that one, Jeannie). I always wanted to die with a boarding pass in my hand. (thanks for that, Sue G.) But I think we will be staying pretty close to home, so come see us.  Rally around Keith. I am on hospice.

Nancy Rivest Green was a reader at age three, and a writer by age nine.  Those two activities have been entwined in her being for as long as she can remember.  Add in her enchantment with nature, beginning from her earliest memories, and she hasn’t really changed much through these many years.
