Nancy Middleton’s short fiction has appeared in The South Carolina Review and her author interviews have been published at undomesticatedmag.com and in Glimmer Train, one of which was anthologized in the Writers Ask series. She has also won two Solas Best Travel Writing awards and has been a featured writer at The Clemson Literary Festival.
Before she started writing fiction, Nancy received degrees in international relations and Russian language from Allegheny College and Georgetown University. She then worked as a Russian leadership analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency, a fascinating job that honed her writing skills. Seeking a more creative and independent lifestyle, she began to write fiction while working as a freelance editor for several Washington, D.C.-based organizations, including The Brookings Institute. Nancy has also taught English and writing, most recently at California State University, Monterey Bay.
A native of Rochester, New York, Nancy now lives in Monterey, California. She loves history, travel, and yoga, and is nearing completion of her first novel.
