A few words about me
After a rewarding career writing about science, medicine and healthful living (under the byline Nancy Ross-Flanigan), I'm now focusing on memoir and creative nonfiction.
My memoir, Mango Rash: Survival Lessons in the Land of Frangipani and Fanta, is finished (for now), and I'm working toward publication. Stay tuned for updates.
First place, memoir/nonfiction category, Pacific Northwest Writers Association, for Mango Rash.
My submission, "Tabu," an excerpt from Mango Rash was a finalist for the 43rd New Millennium Writings Literary Awards in Nonfiction.
For the second time, I was named a finalist in the Tucson Festival of Books Literary Awards, with an excerpt from Mango Rash. A different excerpt from the memoir was a finalist for the same award in 2015 and was published in Colere. Another excerpt from the memoir was a finalist for the 2015 Northern Colorado Writers Top of the Mountain Book Award.
