Reporter for the News & Observer
Raleigh, North Carloina
Last week was another ‘first’ for me…I was interviewed by a reporter with our local paper who wanted to talk to me about my fledgling writing career. Hopes and dreams are coming true for me at the ripe old age of 57, and Alex Granados was kind enough to listen and put on paper what it has taken to get me to this point. Here is a short excerpt from the article…
"My plans right now are to get in print," she said. "And in order to do that I have to come up with the best book." To that end, she has enlisted the help of her family. Her two adult sons, 25 and 29, have both read her work. Badger says they don't feel weird about reading her romantic writing. In fact, her son Eric - the one who served in Iraq - helped her with military details for one of her e-books. Even her mother joins in by being what Badger calls her "best editor." The latest book Badger is working on is the first set in her new hometown. In fact, the book begins at the North Carolina Museum of Art. "A big adage that I believe in is write what you know," she said. "I'm not in New Hampshire anymore, so I like to incorporate the local area."
Please remember that I write under TWO names: Nancy Lee Badger and Nancy Lennea
