Award-winning author Nancy Basile is known for writing characters who feel like friends and places that you want to visit. Nancy won the 2022 BookFest award for LGBTQ Mystery and took second place for both Cozy Mystery and Amateur Sleuths.
Nancy grew up running through the fields and woods of West Virginia and has the scarred knees to prove it.
When she wasn’t skinning her knees, she was reading mysteries. She started with Encyclopedia Brown, then moved onto Nancy Drew, and then devoured every single Agatha Christie, even the short stories.
She dreamed of living on a house boat, floating up and down the Ohio River, and writing her own mystery books. Well, half of that dream has come true with the River Sutton Mysteries. (She realized the other half–living on a houseboat–might be uncomfortable and chilly to her middle-aged bones, anyway.)
Although she lives in Amish Country, Pennsylvania with her husband and two children, she’ll always be a WV girl at heart.
