About

Nancy Shepard Metzger Waldman grew up in Texas and has been migrating northward ever since. She now lives in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and has a home in the mountains of North Carolina.

Nancy writes speculative fiction. She is one of three founding members and editors of Third Person Press. She’s a 2013 graduate of Viable Paradise Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing Workshop (VP XVII!), a Codexian, a member of SF Canada, and an active member of the thriving Cape Breton writing community. She participates in the Story Forge Writing group and the Fantasy & Science Fiction Workshop—The Quillians and is an advocate of National Novel Writing Month which she first “won” way back in 2002 and for many years after. Nancy studied writing at the Sarah Lawrence College Writing Institute, Bronxville, NY, but gives major credit to her writing friends and colleagues in Cape Breton for teaching her about excellent writing and how to be a writer.

A former R.N., Nancy holds a Masters degree in Psychiatric Nursing. She sits on the Board of EPIC, a very personal, award-winning educational charity founded by her husband, Barry. She enjoys art, quilting, photography, and developing websites for family and friends, including her own creativity site, The Practically Creative Quarter. In her spare time, Nancy [used to] design digital fashions for Second Life under the name Aplomb Pomilio.
