HI! I was born in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. I had a great childhood, growing up along the shores of Lake Huron; have a peek at this!
Port Huron, Michigan was just a bridge away.
Later on, I trained for a job that would allow me to work in different countries: I chose Switzerland. That way I could travel around Europe a lot more easily than if I had to cross the Atlantic every time.
I’ve worked in both the French and German-speaking parts of this beautiful country, and am fluent in French, German and Swiss German dialect.
When my daughter was three, she was rather disappointed when I couldn’t re-tell her a story that I had made up a couple of weeks or so ago. Then she suggested that I write my stories down… I’ve always loved writing and took her suggestion most seriously! I first began writing for children’s magazines in the US, in 1998. I kept learning, and now have had eight picture story books published, signed Nancy E. Walker-Guye.
A couple of years ago , someone dear to my heart, someone who wished that my dreams could be fulfilled, asked me, ‘Hey Nancy, if you could write what you really wanted to write, what would that be?’ I gave that question a lot of thought. I loved (and still love) writing for children, but my own children were older, and I had more time for myself. To actually do what I would like to do. So I decided to write a novel, and the result is ANYTHING for Anna! I’m very excited about my story, and hope that you’ll enjoy it!
Until soon, I hope,
Nancy Ellen (for readers of ANYTHING for Anna!)
