Nancy Chase writes fantasy, science fiction, fairy tales, and paranormal fiction, often inspired by mythology, dreams, folklore, or history.
She was born in Maine. Over her lifetime, she has worked as a summer camp cabin cleaner, apple picker, stable girl, political activist, beauty consultant, inventory taker, t-shirt silk screener, pet shop cashier, art model, convenience store clerk, hotel banquet manager, university secretary, magazine editor, freelance book doctor, and farmer.
She can write a sonnet, dance a pavane, train a horse, shear a sheep, or milk a cow. She is slightly synesthetic. She has been inside the Tomb of the Eagles in the Orkneys and has done a Native American vision quest in the Sierra Nevadas. She prefers summer over winter, tea over coffee, her favorite color is green, and she has a peculiar obsession with collecting beautiful blank books in which she never writes.
She lives in Virginia with her husband and an ever-changing array of pets.
